Error 403 when creating WooCommerce PUT API call

Apparently, PUT requests and other types of requests fail silently on many shared hosts.

I had this error across two different customers who use WooCommerce API integrations.

Instead of PUT, simply use POST! As long as you supply the relevant ID, WooCommerce will know you’re making an update.


We came across this while working on WooToApp, a native mobile app for WooCommerce stores.
