BigCommerce E-commerce Plugin

You can use your BigCommerce products and categories within Builder with the BigCommerce e-commerce plugin.

The plugin provides custom types that can be used to:

  • Provide products and categories as inputs for your custom code components.
  • Target content based on products or categories instead of URL paths with hard-coded resource handles or IDs.
  • Preview products and categories on product detail pages and inside of other content while editing.

For a general overview of what you can do with e-commerce plugins and where they fit into your site, you can check out E-commerce Plugins for Builder.

Setup within BigCommerce

In order to enable the plugin to communicate with BigCommerce, you can create a store API account. This step will provide you with the API credentials needed to complete the plugin setup below.

For more information, check out BigCommerce's API authentication documentation.

Setup within Builder

You can install the plugin from the Integrations page by clicking Enable on the BigCommerce plugin entry.

Afterwards, click Settings to configure the plugin with your BigCommerce account information.
