BrandChamp integrates with WooCommerce to enable the following features:
- Synchronization of your orders to enable discount code and/or link based tracking of referral sales
- Adjustment of referral cookie expiry days
Authorizing the BrandChamp WooCommerce App
In order to start using BrandChamp with WooCommerce, you must authorize the BrandChamp WooCommerce app for use with your WooCommerce store. You will need to have admin credentials for your WooCommerce store to complete this section.
To authorize, go to the Integration tab under the Settings page:
Click the " Add" button in the WooCommerce Section
Which brings you to the following page:
Enter the full base URL of your store in the input box here. E.g. if your store's address is "www.freerangespirit.com", then you'll need to enter "https://www.freerangespirit.com".
Click the "Authorize" button.
You will then be prompted to log in to your WooCommerce admin site if you weren't already.
Once logged in, you'll then be asked to approve the BrandChamp App.
Click the "Approve" button
Installing the BrandChamp WooCommerce Plugin
The BrandChamp WooCommerce plugin enables tracking of referral links and configuration of referral settings.
After approving the BrandChamp App, the page will redirect you back to the BrandChamp admin portal where you will be prompted to download the BrandChamp WooCommerce Plugin.
Once the plugin is downloaded, you will then need to log into your WooCommerce Store to install the plugin
Click "Plugins" and then select "Add New"
Upload the BrandChamp plugin downloaded earlier and click "Install Now"
After installing the plugin, click "Activate Plugin"
Configuring Referral Cookie Expiry
To configure your referral cookie expiry, access the WooCommerce Integration page by clicking “Edit” in the WooCommerce section.
The “Referral Cookie Expiry” setting allows you to control how many days after a referral link is clicked that the referral will be tracked for.
The default “Referral Cookie Expiry” days is 30 days.
To adjust the days, click the blue highlighted “Edit” text
Enter the desired number of days you want a referral link to be tracked for. Finally, click “Update”.
After clicking “Update”, the system will send a notification, “Updated referral cookie expiry”.
Note: Testing out your WooCommerce API integration can be done by going through the process of editing your “Referral Cookie Expiry”. If you receive the green notification above, the API integration is successful.
