What is the difference between v1 and v2 of the WooCommerce REST API?

WooCommerce 3.0 introduced a new version of the REST API – v2 – whilst also maintaining support for v1 of the REST API (v1 is now deprecated). The WooCommerce v2 REST API includes the following changes:

  • Support for meta data on most endpoints (custom fields)
  • New variations endpoint for creating and updating variations
  • Shipping zones endpoints
  • Payment and shipping methods endpoints

WooCommerce v2.6 only supports the v1 REST API. The API documentation for each API can be found here:
