If you are having trouble installing the WooCommerce integration, you may be seeing one of the following error logs. Below are some steps you can take for each error type.

Invalid Signature

If you are presented with this error message, it means that your WooCommerce consumer key and consumer secret may have expired or is no longer valid. Try this: Go into your WooCommerce Account. Click on “Your Profile”. Revoke the API key. Renew the API key and reinsert the newly generated key into the installation field on QuickBooks Commerce.
WooCommerce hosting provider is breaking API requests
Unable to install: Authentication Error: oauth_consumer_secret is missing
This error is caused because the hosting provider that relays information between QuickBooks Commerce and WooCommerce is stripping headers on requests made on their eCommerce stores.

Invalid URL

If your URL is then entering just will generate this error.
