Woocommerce trends API integration would require some custom development, and the exact implementation would depend on the specific API you’re using. However, I can provide you with a sample code framework to give you an idea of how to integrate an API into WooCommerce.

For this example! you want to integrate a “Trends” API to fetch trending products and display them on your WooCommerce store. We’ll use PHP, as WooCommerce is built on WordPress, which is primarily PHP-based.

  • Get API Access Credentials

    First of all, sign up for the Trends API you want to use and obtain the necessary API credentials.

  • Create a Custom Plugin

    Make a special WordPress add-on to store your integration code. You can make a fresh folder for your add-on in the wp-content/plugins/ part of your WordPress setup. You can find more information in the article called “custom wordpress plugin development from scratch.”

  • Write Integration Code

    This code should be placed in your custom plugin’s PHP file:

    Copy to Clipboard
    Replace 'YOUR_API_KEY' and 'https://api.example.com/trends' with your actual API key and endpoint URL.

  • Add the Shortcode to a WooCommerce Page

    Make a new page or modify an existing one in your WordPress admin dashboard. Put the code [trending_products] in the page content where you want to show the popular products.

  • Test and Customize

    Carefully check your integration to make sure it does what you want it to. Adjust the code and how it looks to match how you want your store to appear and work.

    Remember, this is a basic example, and a real integration may involve more complex data handling, error checking, and additional features. Make sure to consult the documentation of the Trends API you’re using for specific details on how to fetch and display data from that API.
