This guide is intended for Wix merchants who are connecting their store to Violet. During this process, the merchant will create a new API Key in their Wix dashboard and then provide the generated credentials to Violet through the Violet Connect onboarding tool. The merchant will retain full control of the created API Key and can remove it at any time from within their Wix dashboard. Total time for completion is around 3 minutes.

  3. Click the Generate API Key in the upper right corner of the API Keys page.
  4. Enter a Name for the new API Key that will remind you of the reason for creating this client. This can be as simple as “Violet” or the name of the channel you are connecting to.

  8. Once you close the API Key screen you will be returned to the API Keys page that lists your tokens. On the right side of this screen you will find the Account ID section. Copy the Account ID and keep it available for Step 2 of this guide.
  9. Next go to the Home screen of your Wix Dashboard. This can be done by clicking on the Wix logo in the upper left corner of the Wix Dashboard.
  10. Once you are on the Home screen, the URL in your browser will contain your Site ID between /dashboard/ and /home. In this example URL, https://manage.wix.com/dashboard/83749f16-12a9-2109-913e-ed6fed5c7e4d/home, 83799f16-12a9-4803-963e-ed6fed6c7e4d is the Site ID. Copy this value and keep it available for Step 2 of this guide.

Step 2: Provide App Credentials to Violet

Once you have your Client ID and Client Secret, it’s time to return to the Violet Connect onboarding tool and enter the follow credentials created in the previous steps:

  1. Enter your API Key obtained in the previous steps in the ”API Key” field.
  2. Enter your Account ID obtained in the previous steps in the ”Account ID” field.
  3. Enter your Site ID obtained in the previous steps in the “Site ID” field.

Once entered, click the Connect button to validate the credentials and complete the connection between your store and Violet. If the credentials are invalid you should check for any spaces or other copy/paste errors and try again.

Upon success you will be redirected back to the channel who first sent you to Violet.
