This article outlines the steps required to configure your BigCommerce integration.
- Configure product SKUs
- Gather shipping methods
- Gather API credentials
- Enable API access
- Enable inventory tracking
- Review order status
Configure product SKUs
Stock Keeping Units (SKUs) are merchant-defined codes that uniquely identify products in a warehouse. It is critical that the SKUs defined in BigCommerce are identical to the SKUs loaded into your warehouse management system.
Gather shipping methods
As part of the third-party fulfillment setup, the shipping methods offered in the eCommerce system must be mapped to the corresponding shipping codes used by the fulfillment center.
Gather API credentials and authorize app
In order to enable API access, gather the required credentials from BigCommerce.
Enable API access
To begin automating fulfilment, enter the credentials in your DropStream store, and authorize the DropStream app.
Enable inventory tracking
When inventory tracking is enabled in BigCommerce, DropStream automatically updates inventory status in your BigCommerce store.
Review order status
When you set the integration to Enabled, PackageBee begins the process of importing orders from BigCommerce, and sending them to your warehouse management system.
