Hey there, @blessingiyama! Thanks so much for reaching out. I’m so sorry to hear you’re running into this! I can see you’re currently chatting with our support - which is perfect.

Oftentimes the first steps we recommend here in the Community are exactly what was mentioned in your ticket, running through connections and the troubleshooting guides.

May I ask if you're connecting your Wordpress site following the connection steps here?
Wordpress uses a lot of plugins that may block the connection, so first I'd recommend giving the above link a read and trying to connect again following those steps. 
We also have a troubleshooting guide here that may help:

If for any reason you’re still running into issues, we typically point ya back towards support as they’ll be able to dig in a bit more with ya.

I saw they did ask for either a video and/or screenshots of the errors you’re running into. Feel free to share those in your ticket and hopefully that’ll help get to the bottom! 🙂
