WooCommerce Store Paths – If you modified the default paths in WooCommerce, you can set the same paths here.
Advanced Options –
WooCommerce API checkbox will enable or disable the connection to and from your products. WalkTheWeb uses a Read Only connection.
Allow iFrame – when browsing your 3D Website, if you click on a product to Read More or Add to Cart, it opens your original Online Store webpage. You can have it as an overlay iFrame on the 3D Website or open in a new Browser Tab based on this checkbox.
HTTP Header – The iFrame above only works if you allow the 3D Website to put your online store website in an iFrame using these settings. This will not allow any other websites (outside this list), to put your online store website into an iFrame. The text will give you the exact settings in case you need to manually add it to work with any other plugin (rare).
Click Next on the top or bottom of the page (not shown in image).
