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

Setup

  • Vend for Mac or PC
  • WooCommerce Integration

Answer

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.
