What is a test environment and why do I need one to set up my Vend-WooCommerce Integration?

  • Vend for Mac or PC
  • WooCommerce Integration


If you have an existing Vend store or WooCommerce store, or both, Vend recommends working with a web developer to create a test environment and test the integration thoroughly. A test environment should be an as-close-as-possible replica of your live stores so you can simulate the changes that would occur during the set up of the integration. Doing this enables you to cause the least disruption to your live store and customers.

Once your WooCommerce integration is fully set up and tested, you’ll be able to sync all sales, customers, products, and inventory between your active Vend and WooCommerce accounts.

The WooCommerce Integration: How does it work and how do I set it up

Once you have thoroughly completed the integration testing, here are the next steps based on how the testing environment was set up:

  1. If you want to change the website URL (in Vend) to assign a new WooCommerce site (not previously linked in Vend), please delete the integration and re-create the integration with the new URL.
  2. If you want to change the URL (in Vend) which is assigned to the currently linked WooCommerce account to Vend, please contact the Vend Support and we can help with the request.

All we need from you is the new website URL you would it to be changed too in Vend.
