WooCommerce is an open-source, e-commerce plugin for WordPress. It is designed for small to large-sized online merchants using WordPress. It uses a MySQL database.

The details associated with the content in WooCommerce are stored as Events in the MySQL database. For example, orders, payments, and shipping. WooCommerce provides some default tables and also allows you to create custom tables. You can replicate the Events data from your WooCommerce account to a Destination database or data warehouse using Hevo Pipelines.

Note: You must provide the MySQL database details to configure the WooCommerce Source.

Schema and Primary Keys

The schema is derived based on the data in your MySQL Source tables.

Data Model

WooCommerce is a WordPress plugin and uses many of the WordPress tables. See the WordPress Database Description document to understand the structure of WordPress.

The following is the list of tables (objects) that are created by default at the Destination when you run the Pipeline. In addition to the default tables, you can ingest any custom tables that you have created.

Note: Each table name is prefixed with your <_WP Database="" Table="" Prefix="">_, for example, _wp__.
