Next steps

Visit the “Health” tab to assess the connector’s health.

  • Data Fetching: Responsible for gathering data from third-party platforms. It generally requires valid credentials or API keys. If its health is compromised, there could be problems with credentials or permissions.

  • Data Capture: Manages incoming data and events, mainly through webhooks. A non-healthy status typically indicates difficulties with the connector's webhook setup.

  • Engagements: Handles the processing and ingestion of data into our platform. An unhealthy state might mean the data isn't in the anticipated format.

Use WooCommerce

FAQs

I don’t see the Connectors/Automate Work option. What am I missing?

Please verify your Access role under 'Organization Settings'. If it's not present there, contact your admin for assistance.

As a WooCommerce merchant with multiple WooCommerce storefronts, can I connect each one to MessageBird?

Absolutely! Install the MessageBird app for each storefront as required. After installation, view all the storefronts under 'Your Connectors'. Remember, each installation is unique to one store, so you must install it for each storefront individually.

What should I do if my Data sync displays a "Failed" status?

Please contact our support team for assistance.

Is it possible to restore a deleted connector?

No, once you delete a connector, it's irreversible. However, you can always create a new connector to replace the one you deleted.

What should I do if I notice errors in the Health status of my connector?

It's crucial to address any errors promptly. If you're unable to resolve the connector errors yourself, our dedicated support team is here to help.

What happens with my audiences if my connector becomes defunct or is deleted?

Your audience will still function but won't receive new updates on contact attributes.

What will happen to my flows if my connector is removed or becomes defunct?

While the flows will remain intact, they will no longer be influenced by the connector or be able to execute actions via the connector. You would need to manually adjust the flows to use new connector instances.

How can I delete the connector?

  1. Go to Automate Work > Connectors > Your Connectors.

  2. Search for WooCommerce.

  3. From the results, select the connector you wish to delete and click on Delete connector located at the top right corner.
