Double check your WordPress Permalinks settings from General Settings > Permalinks. Make sure your Common Settings are set to anything but Default. For example, choose Day and name as an alternative.
From WordPress, navigate to WooCommerce > Settings/Advanced. Click on the LegacyAPI tab a bit lower down and check off the Enable the REST API option. (check 'Enable the REST API checkbox is not checked) > Press 'Save Changes' button.
Head back to the WooCommerce section. Go to Settings/Advanced > RestAPI. Click on the Keys/Apps link, then click on Add Key. Once there, enter in all the key details, and hit the blue Generate API Key button. (Do no forget to select Read/Write from Permissons drop-down list)
You're almost done! Take note of your WooCommerce Customer Key and Consumer Secret, and then tab over to 'Help Scout' to wrap up. Point to remember Consumer Key: This key is ised as Access Token on Extend's side when we create a new connection.
