Gathering API Credentials
In order to gather the API credentials and allow API access, follow these steps:
Gathering the Store Hash
The BigCommerce store hash value can be derived from your store URL. For example, if your URL is http://store-xxxxxxxxx.mybigcommerce.com then your store hash is xxxxxxxxx.
If you are using a custom domain name, you can find your store hash by:
a. Click My Account > Store Details within the My Account page (URL for your account page is manage.bigcommerce.com/about)
b. Scroll down to Details to see your Current Domain, Permanent Address, and Control Panel address URLS
In DropStream, after selecting BigCommerce as your store platform, enter your store hash and click Add Store.
You'll be redirected to the BigCommerce login where you will use the owner username and owner password to login. Note: Only users with owner assignment can add and update apps in BigCommerce
Once you are logged in, you'll be prompted to add the DropStream app. Click Confirm.
