WooCommerce Subscriptions is a plugin that allows you to sell products and services with recurring payments. You can use the WooCommerce REST API to manage subscriptions programmatically, which allows you to create, read, update, and delete subscriptions using HTTP requests.

Here are the basic steps to manage WooCommerce subscriptions with the API:

  1. First, you need to enable the WooCommerce REST API by going to WooCommerce > Settings > Advanced > REST API.
  2. Next, you’ll need to generate an API key. You can do this by going to WooCommerce > Settings > Advanced > REST API > Keys/Apps.
  3. Once you have your API key, you can use it to authenticate your requests by including it in the headers of your HTTP requests. The format for the headers will be:
Copy codeAuthorization: Basic <API_KEY>
  1. You can then use the following endpoints to manage your subscriptions:
  • Create a subscription: Use the /subscriptions endpoint with a POST request to create a new subscription. You will need to include the product ID, customer ID, and billing schedule in the body of the request.
  • Retrieve a subscription: Use the /subscriptions/<SUBSCRIPTION_ID> endpoint with a GET request to retrieve a specific subscription by its ID.
  • Update a subscription: Use the /subscriptions/<SUBSCRIPTION_ID> endpoint with a PUT request to update a specific subscription by its ID. You will need to include the updated information in the body of the request.
  • Cancel a subscription: Use the /subscriptions/<SUBSCRIPTION_ID> endpoint with a DELETE request to cancel a specific subscription by its ID.

Please note that you need to have the WooCommerce Subscriptions plugin installed and activated in order to access the subscription endpoints.

It’s also important to mention that you should be familiar with REST API and the development to use these endpoints effectively.
