Initial Setup

You’ll need to setup both the WordPress plugin and the Shopify app. The WordPress plugin must be installed first.

Note

If you have any question about setting up the app, I would love to hear from you and be happy to help. Email kenton@shopifywishlistmember.com.

Setup WordPress Plugin

  1. Install the `Link for Shopify and Wishlist Member<https://wordpress.org/plugins/link-for-shopify-and-wishlist-member/>`_ WordPress plugin. This should be done in the same way as you installed WishList Member. Here is a simple video tutorial. However, there are a few different ways to install a plugin, see WordPress’ Managing Plugins page.

  2. If you haven’t already, setup a level in WishList Member by navigating to WishList Member -> Levels

  3. Navigate to WishList Member -> Integration.

  4. You’ll see one of two things:

    1. If you’ve never setup a shopping cart before, then you’ll see a list of shopping carts. Choose Generic and click Update Shopping Carts.

    2. If you’ve setup a shopping cart before, then you’ll see a cog icon. Click the cog icon to bring up the list of carts. Choose Generic and click Update Shopping Carts.

  5. After either 4a. or 4b. choose Generic from the dropdown and click Set Shopping Cart.

Congratulations

You’ve now completed the setup process for the WordPress Plugin. The next part will be easier.

Setup Shopify App

  1. Install the Shopify App. Once installed, you should be on the app home page. If not, navigate to Apps -> Link for Wishlist Member. You should now see:

  1. Put in the URL of WordPress site eg http://www.yoursite.com. If you’re unsure of the exact url, login to your WordPress site. You should be at a URL that ends in wp-admin. Put in the URL that you are on omitting the wp-admin. For example, if you are one http://example.com/members/wp-admin use the URL http://exampe.com/members/. You should now see a confirmation message.

  1. You can now assign WishList Member levels to Shopify products using the drop down options. A customer who purchase the related Shopify Product will receive an email with an authenticated link that allows them to create a WishList Member account.

Assigning WishList Member levels to Shopify products is mostly straightforward, but for more detailed information see Managing Levels.
