Hi, I’m Henry and we’re going to go over the creation of the Provider entry for the StockUnlocks plugin for WordPress. We’re setting up only one Provider connection today for testing, however, the process is the same for any Provider entries that you may want to add later. You know, almost immediately after you create your account with reseller.stockunlocks.com, you’ll receive a welcome email. Your account will not be active until you click on the activation link found in this email.
Right after you’ve activated your account with reseller.stockunlocks.com, you’ll receive another email with your username, an API key, and the API URL. We’ll need that info when creating the Provider post type. Returning to the StockUnlocks plugin, click on “Providers” to view the list of existing entries, if any. Click “Add New” and let’s take a look at the available options. Active is either “yes” or “no”. When set to “no” it effectively disables all automated processing for that particular Provider. Site Name is whatever you want it to be.
It’s the main identifier appearing in the overall list of Providers. I’m just going to put “StockUnlocks” here to make this easy to identify. API URL is the website of your chosen Provider. That’s usually sent in an email with the rest of the information below. Let’s go ahead and add reseller.stockunlocks.com In the past, I found that for some websites it was necessary to add the trailing forward slash to the end of the website URL. However, that may not be necessary anymore.
API Username, pretty straightforward, the username you chose when you created your profile with that particular Provider. API Access Key uniquely identifies your account, giving you remote access to all of the unlocking services made available to you from your Provider. It’s best to just copy and paste that in here, for obvious reasons. API Notes can be anything you want to say or reference about this entry. This could be contact information, notes from a recent conversation, whatever you like. Let’s go ahead and click “Publish” to save and activate our new Provider post type.
Clicking on “Providers” now reveals our newly created entry. If there were others, they would all appear right here. Now that we have a specific Provider post type properly filled out, we’re ready to move on to importing services from our Provider directly into our website so that we can begin processing orders. .
