Post Request With API

Hello Dear Coders,

I want to post request with my web api and this way my web site can create an order.
When i tried this method in kodular it is worked! but not for all datas.
Here is my kodular blocks;
Web url format is: /wp-json/wc/v3/orders?consumer_key=ck_xxxx&consumer_secret=cs

With above blocks i can succesfully post with main array which are “payment_method”,“set_paid”,“payment_method_title” but i can not post first name, last name under the “billing” array. How can i run this ?,
The api intruction is in below,

Try PostText with a string of parameters:

for example

.PostText text > join > firstname=tttt&lastname=zzz&city=yyy

(note no question mark needed for the first parameter when using PostText)

Hello they are sub strings i have already try this it is not working what is your suggestion to run sub strings ?

Create your POST parameters with Join .

Can you explain more detaily with block ?

If I must…


If as you say, these are substrings, you may need to either:

  1. add an “&” to the first item parameter
  2. Place all of your parameters in your posttext join block

Maybe :

I have tried your method posting funciton is working but sub string is data first name is not posted.

Main string is “billing”
and sub string is “first-name” and this is what i tried;

you didn’t add a value to the billing parameter…

yes i am trying to add for first name value but first name string is under string to billing data.

In this block remove & and try

It will print as first name=text box.text

sorry, did not worked. and it does not make sense because in my json data both under the billing object and shipping object includes “first_name” string.

I am sorry, I have not being paying attention! You probably need to manually create a json string for your “substring”. Back in a minute with an example here…

You may need to post all your parameters in a json string…

you also have to set the Content-Type in the request header…
your Content-Type is application/json
see an example here App Inventor Tutorials and Examples: Dropbox | Pura Vida Apps
and you have to put together your json string manually as @TimAi2 already mentioned…



Hello Dear All,

I have tried all your methods what you told me but never worked. What is my fault ?
Here is my blocks.

Here is documantetion about api;

Remove the single quotes from the beginning and end of your JSON string?

'{ > { and }' > }

Try billing outside of the JSON with an equals sign ?


did not worked. As i said before, all main object i can post but sub strings i could not posted.

follow @TimAi2 's advice…
and post a screenshot of your complete JSON string… where are your substrings?

also use Do it to debug your blocks, see also tip 4 here App Inventor: How to Learn | Pura Vida Apps
see also Live Development, Testing, and Debugging Tools

and then you might want to verify your JSON string in an online tools like
in the end your JSON string must look like exactly as in the example
