Google Sheets is a popular spreadsheet application developed by Google. It allows users to create, edit, and collaborate on spreadsheets online.
Integrating Google Sheets with WooCommerce, you’ll be able to connect the two platforms, allowing you to automate your processes.
Here’s why you should set up WooCommerce Google Sheets integration in your store:
By integrating Google Sheets with WooCommerce, you can share your store data effortlessly without sharing sensitive data like admin credentials.
For example, store owners will have to share the order data with the shipping manager at their warehouse. They also have to share the data with affiliates.
Google Sheets offers a collaborative environment where multiple users can work on the same sheet simultaneously.
This is useful for team members to manage different aspects of the business, such as inventory, marketing, and prices.
Google Sheets offers powerful tools for data analysis and reporting.
You can sort, filter, or export the sales, customer, or product data in Google Spreadsheets. Further, it directly integrates with Google Looker Studio, allowing for more in-depth analysis and custom reporting.
The synchronization between WooCommerce and Google Sheets ensures that your data is always up-to-date in real-time.
This connection facilitates the seamless communication between the two platforms related to product information, inventory, order details, and more.
Google Sheets acts as a bridge between WooCommerce and other tools and services. You can use it to facilitate integration with marketing tools, analytics platforms, or business applications.
For example, It integrates with many reporting tools, such as Google Looker Studio, which allows you to create reports for the exported data from your online store.
If you integrate your WooCommerce store with different WordPress plugins, they may push some meta data inside the orders, which is not accessible elsewhere.
For example, shipment tracking details generated by shipment tracking plugins or event-related details created by event manager plugins.
However, you can easily push this meta data to Google Sheets.
As a store owner, you can export order data directly to Google Sheets with WooCommerce Google Sheets integration.
You can further generate a comprehensive view of sales trends, customer behavior, and other valuable insights that can lead to informed decision-making.
Google Sheets certainly makes it accessible to store owners who may not be familiar with complex data management systems.
It provides a familiar spreadsheet interface to manage and organize data.

Let’s dive into it.
This automation will help you analyze all the order-related information in one place right after a customer buys on the checkout page.
Once you create a new automation, add the ‘Order Created’ event trigger under WooCommerce.

Click on the plus (+) icon and select 'Action'.
Navigate to the Send Data section and select 'Insert Row' under Google Sheets.
Create a spreadsheet in a separate tab, and copy the ID of the sheet as shown below.
Important note: The URL of the spreadsheet is NOT the ID of the sheet; the ID is the part of the URL, as shown below.
Paste the ID of the spreadsheet into the “Enter Google Spreadsheet ID” space. Click on Get Sheet to sync the spreadsheet.
If you have multiple worksheets, select the one where you want to see the data.
Under the Data section, click on ‘Add New’ and use merge tags to see the information you need.
We need the order ID, customer’s name, email address, product purchased, and order total.
Copy the respective merge tags shown in the above picture, and paste them into the data columns.
Click on ‘Save’ and your automation is ready.
Place a test order to check the task execution.

Check the connected spreadsheet. You can see the order-related data in the sheet.
This is a great WooCommerce Google Sheets integration use case that lets you sync order data in real-time.
