    Hi there,
    Just installed the plugin and am a bit confused at how to fill out the Esty – Create A New App part. I’ve never done this before and just wondering what I’m supposed to write in their blank sections:
    Application Name:
    Describe your Application:
    Application Website:
    What type of application are you building?
    and so on…
    Help:)

    No specifics really needed. Just some general information for them to know what their API is being used for.

    For instance, the application name could just be your site name, description would be displaying products on the website. Website would just be the URL for the site, and perhaps something like “General display app in WordPress”

    Okay. One more question, Michael…we have a temporary site right now until our site goes live. Do I list our temporary site URL or the URL of our future site when it goes live?
    Thank you!

    Also, do i check the box for “Compatible with the new Inventory Management API”?

    As far as I’m aware, they’re not strict at all around these topics, it’s mostly informational. Worst case, put a note in the description that it’s for a dev site at first and will eventually move to a different domain.

    We don’t have anything specific, that I’m aware of, regarding the inventory management API part. We need to be able to read the available products, so that we can import/display in the WordPress site. There won’t be any selling/ecommerce done via the WordPress site.

    I completely misunderstood what this plugin was intended to do. So you’re saying I can’t sell my imported etsy listings on my site?

    Correct, it does not replace your store on Etsy.com. It DOES, however, help display available products FROM the store in a centralized location. It doesn’t create or import into an ecommerce solution like WooCommerce or similar.

    For your lats question, it really depends on how you define the topic. If you define it as the user never leaves fauxyfurrvintage.com as a quick example, no. If you define it as they are provided a quick link to the Etsy.com listing for the product they just clicked on, and they finalize payments there, then yes.

    Thanks, Michael. I need something different at this time.

    Understandable, and sorry about the confusion there.
