Flourish WooCommerce Plugin

Updated 1 week ago by Admin CG

The Flourish WooCommerce Integration enables our brand and wholesale clients to set up a custom e-commerce store and menu. The plugin syncs items and live inventory to a WooCommerce store hosted on WordPress. Orders placed through this store will flow into Flourish for fulfillment.

Define your Goals

Start your integration project by defining your goals. You can:

  • Create a real-time sales menu
  • Highlight a brand or set of brands
  • Create multiple stores, for instance, one menu/store per brand
  • Require authentication
  • Co-deploy with other plugins and tools

How it works

The basics

The platforms connect on several data points. Here are the defined data objects and terms:






If this is enabled on the plugin, inventory levels for products update in WooCommerce in real time.




Orders created in WooCommerce sync to Flourish. Flourish updates WooCommerce during fulfillment.

Data Flow

Flourish Data Sent to WooCommerce.




Create or update an item in Flourish. When you toggle 'ON" the "e-commerce active" flag, it sends it to WooCommerce.

Creates/updates the product in WooCommerce

Item's sellable quantity changes.

Updates the available quantity in WooCommerce.

Order Status update to Packed, Shipped, or Cancelled.

Updates the order's status in WooCommerce

WooCommerce Data Sent to Flourish




A new Customer creates a sales order in WooCommerce.

A new Destination is created in Flourish if it doesn't match an existing record.

A new order is created in WooCommerce.

The order is created in Flourish.

Order Workflow

Both platforms update each other through the lifecycle of an order.

Flourish does not update WooCommerce with newly added or updated order line information. Unless otherwise noted, Flourish only updates the Status of orders in WooCommerce. If you want to add or change an order line to your order, make the changes in WooCommerce, and when you save the order within WooCommerce, the changes will sync to Flourish.

Order Payment terms

For payment terms that are supported in WooCommerce, see below. When you set the payment term for an outbound order (linked to a WooCommerce order) in Flourish and save, Flourish updates the WooCommerce order with the payment term.

  • Cash on Delivery
  • Consignment
  • Net 3
  • Net 7
  • Net 10
  • Net 14
  • Net 15
  • Net 20
  • Net 30
  • Net 60
  • Net 90
  • Pre-Payment

Some more payment terms are internal to WooCommerce and are not supported.

WooCommerce Product Listing State

The listing states for products in WooCommerce are:

  • "Available"
  • "Archived" 
  • "Sample" 
  • "Backorder" 
  • "Internal" 
  • "Unavailable"

Items created in Flourish and synced to WooCommerce are created in WooCommerce with the "Available" listing state.
