BigCommerce is a flexible, robust ecommerce platform that provides established and emerging brands alike with everything they need to launch, promote, manage and scale a successful online store. Here are a few things you can expect from the BigCommerce/Grow integration.
How to Connect
Before you get started you will need to create an API account for each store. This BigCommerce help article goes through the full process, but basically you need to do the following:
- The store owner needs to go to Advanced Settings › API Accounts
- Click "API Account" and give it a name.
- Copy the API path URL (you'll need to enter part of it in Grow later)
- Choose the following settings for the "OAuth Scopes":
- Click Save
- A window will pop up with the Client ID, Client Secret, and Access Token. Save these to your computer because this is the only time they will display. (These will also automatically download as a text file.)
- In Grow, go to your data sources settings page and click "Connect Data Sources"
- Search for BigCommerce and click "Connect"
- In the pop-up window, enter your Client ID, Access Token, and part of the API path (https://api.bigcommerce.com/stores/xxxxxxxxxx/v3/).
