KindBuys for WooCommerce

KindBuys for WooCommerce allows for quick integration with the KindBuys Marketplace, a curation of sustainable and ethical goods.

  • Import inventory directly from WooCommerce to KindBuys.
  • Highlight sustainable and ethical values by specifying exactly which certifications your company and products hold – these will be showcased in the KindBuys Marketplace.
  • Fulfill orders from KindBuys in your WooCommerce dashboard just like normal, as they are exported from KindBuys to WooCommerce in real-time.

Setup ↑ Back to top

After installing the extension, you’ll find the KindBuys settings page in the WooCommerce submenu.

Click the login button and follow the authorization flow to complete account setup.

You will need to have an account with KindBuys in order to complete this step. If you don’t have an account with KindBuys please visit the Becoming a Vendor page to learn more.


Listing Certifications ↑ Back to top

Certifications are what make KindBuys unique. We require that all products listed on our platform follow ethical business practices and are making strides towards environmental sustainability, and it is our policy that these efforts be backed by third-party certifications. Click here to see the list of the certifications we look for.

After you’ve completed account setup, the login button on the KindBuys for WooCommerce page will be replaced with some instructions and configurations.

Company Certifications

The first thing you’ll want to do, if applicable, is list any company-level certifications you have (B Corp, 1% for the Planet, etc.) and submit.

Product Certifications

The next step is to list any certifications you have for individual products (USDA Organic, Cruelty Free, etc.)

When you go to edit a product you’ll notice a new KindBuys tab in the product data panel.

Here you’ll want to list any certifications on that particular product.

This is where you can choose to exclude the product from KindBuys if you’d like.


Product Sync ↑ Back to top

Once you’ve got all of your certifications listed, head back over to the KindBuys for WooCommerce page and click the ‘Run Full Product Sync’ button.

All products you’ve chosen to include in KindBuys will be synced.

Any future additions or updates to products will sync in real-time and there is no need to push this button in the future.

We review every product before listing it. Products will be reviewed within three business days of syncing.


Order Sync ↑ Back to top

Whenever an order is placed on KindBuys, it will export to your WooCommerce admin and you can manage and fulfill it there.

You’ll know it came from KindBuys because it will have an added source field with the value set to ‘kindbuys.’

That’s it! Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns!
