Integration with Google (Existing Method)

In this knowledgebase article, we’ll walk you through how to set up Easy Digital Downloads Google Sheet Connector and configure the most important settings on your website – Integration with “Existing Client/Secret Key (Auto Google API Configuration)”.

Licence Validation #

After purchasing the GSheetConnector PRO plugin, you will receive an email containing your license key. Alternatively, you can access your license key by logging into your account

To activate the plugin, simply enter the provided license key and click on “Save“.

Once the license is successfully activated, you’ll gain access to additional tabs for configuration.

Integration Tab #

We have multiple options to select the Google API Settings to connect.

  • Use Existing Client/Secret Key (Auto Google API Configuration) #

  • Use Manual Client/Secret Key (Auto Google API Configuration)

This feature is accessible in both the FREE and PRO versions of the plugin.

Click the “Get Code” button, which will take you to the authentication page where you’ll be prompted to log in to your Google Account. Please select the Google Account you wish to integrate with.

If you are not currently signed in, you will be prompted to log in to your Google Account. Once logged in, you will be asked to grant permissions for both Google Sheets and Google Drive.

Please ensure that you enable both checkboxes as shown in the screenshot below.

We retrieve the Sheet Names and Tab Names from your account to facilitate the integration of your Contact Form with Google Sheets. During this process, you will be asked to grant permission to save, update, and delete data from the connected sheet of your Contact Form.

These permissions are essential for the plugin to effectively store user-submitted form data in the Google Sheet.

We do not store any of the data from your Google account on our servers, everything is processed & stored on your database. We take your privacy extremely seriously and ensure it is never misused. Learn more.

Now, you will be redirected back to the integration settings tab, where the authentication code will be displayed within the authentication text box. Please click on “Save Authentication Code” to proceed.

Your Google Account is now successfully linked, and below, you’ll see the connected email address that was used for authentication. As a result, this Google Account’s sheets can now be associated with the Easy Digital Downloads Store.
