Tips and tricks on the WooCommerce integration

Note 1: If you accept payments for WooCommerce orders via alternative payment platforms, i.e. Affirm, Afterpay, Authorize.Net, PayPal, Square, Stripe, connect them to Synder. In this case, Synder will take WooCommerce order information, such as taxes and products, and fetch it to your payment platform transactions. If you don’t connect these providers, no transactions will be imported.
Note 2: If you connect only WooCommerce with no other payment providers to Synder (e.g. your WooCommerce store accepts payments via payment gateways that Synder does not have direct integrations with), Synder will fetch only the gross amount of your transactions and record it to a separate clearing account called WooCommerce Order (required for Synder).
Note 3: If you get paid via WooCommerce Payments provider, you only need to connect WooCommerce to Synder to record all the transaction details automatically.
Note 4: Some WooCommerce store domains have subfolders, and if you use a site URL containing a subfolder, you will receive a 404 error. To avoid this, make sure you use only the WooCommerce site URL and erase any subfolder details for the connection. Learn more How to fix 404 errors while connecting WooCommerce.
Note 5: If your WooCommerce store accepts payments via different channels, and they are already connected, but not all WooCommerce order details are fetched by Synder, then the problem may root in the inability of Synder to reach your WooCommerce store. In order to fix this, you need to allow WooCommerce to respond to Synder with details.
