Installation

The MyStyle Custom Product Designer requires that you have WordPress with the WooCommerce plugin activated. The plugin is very easy to install and can be set up in just a few minutes. This is a serviceware plugin, meaning that once installed, it will load the Custom Product Designer app remotely from a hosted service, and it will function with all features. However, when in Demo Mode, it will function without access to Print Files. To enable Full Mode, with access to print files, you will need to obtain your MyStyle Developer API Key and Secret, and enter them in your MyStyle settings.

  1. Install the Plugin: Upload the mystyle folder to your website’s /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin: Find MyStyle in your ‘Plugins’ menu in the WordPress admin and press ‘Activate’. This will enable the plugin and also automatically create a “customize” page where the Product Designer will load when someone goes to design their own product. This new Customize page will be created complete with the Customizer Shortcode already in the content. You do not have to manually create your Customize App page or use the shortcode anywhere. When a user clicks ‘customize’ on any product, they will be taken to this automatically created page. You may change the title of this page in your page list, or add your own content to it before or after the shortcode.
  3. Follow the links in the Settings > MyStyle admin to obtain your Developer account, API Key and Secret, and enter them in the settings page. When you register for your Developer account, you’ll be given a temporary demo ID to test with until we can review your account and provide you with your own credentials.
  4. In the WooCommerce product settings, go to the MyStyle tab (beneath product data), check the box ‘Make Customizable’ box and enter a corresponding Template Id. Try using the Template Id 70 for a 12×16 canvas print template. You will receive a list of template ids once you have an active license.

Decieve and Waste of Time

I wish that I am able to give zero stars or a fraction of a star as it does not deserve more than zero stars.

It is well described to give the feeling that it is free and in a small instance that it is linked to their website to find out that it does not work unless connected to their site and to connect it, you have to pay a large monthly amount plus that there is no trial. So they are deceiving.

On the other hand, this plugin should not be here on wordpress.org as this is for free plugins even if they have limited functionality, but this plugin does not function at all without a payment.

PLEASE REMOVE OFF WORDPRESS.ORG

costs hidden very well

There are Designers that cost money. There are designers that doesn’t cost money and are listet in the free downloadable plugin database. This designer plugin is NOT for free, not even the basic functions. When activated you get asked for an API key. No words about costs, of course. To get one you get asked for signing up. There are many qustions to fill out but no infos about costs. Once done you have to notice that you have to pay via Paypal to activate the account. Without that, the plugin is completely useless.
I usually don’t rate that bad but this ist simply a hoax.

Awesome Product Customizer!

We’ve been using the MyStyle Customizer on our personalized cutting boards site and love it!! It was incredibly easy to set up and install on our WooCommerce WordPress site. The user interface is simple, and our customers have been able to customize their cutting boards live right on our website thanks to the plugin!

much to expensive

looks good technically, just way to expensive for small businesses or business with lower profit margins 🙁
