The most common cause of this problem is that your store’s is using WooCommerce version 3.5 or earlier. Make sure you upgrade to the latest WooCommerce version before installing our plugin.

If you already have WooCommerce version 3.5 or later and you’re getting this error authorizing our plugin, either your server or a caching plugin installed on your store strips the “Authorization” header.

Authorization – step 1
Authorization – step 2 – error

Important: As this pertains to configuration of your webserver and/or other WordPress plugins, RevenueHunt cannot provide support in these cases. You can try the suggestions below at your own risk. Please always consult with a web developer when making configuration changes.

In some cases adding the following to your .htaccess file might help:

SetEnvIf Authorization "(.*)" HTTP_AUTHORIZATION=$1

If that does not help, please review the configuration of your caching plugin and look for settings that pertain to caching or not caching headers.

If that does not work, contact your hosting provider.
