BigCommerce

BigCommerce integrates directly with ShippingEasy. BigCommerce is a platform for selling your products which makes it easy to receive orders and ship them to your customers. ShippingEasy will automatically send queries to read the orders from your BigCommerce account and then load them into our application. Once shipped, shipment data will be sent back to your BigCommerce store.

BigCommerce Integration Requirements

Connection Requirements:

  • BigCommerce stores must be live in order to connect to ShippingEasy. If your store is not live and/or in maintenance mode, the API will not be able to create a connection.

Order Import Requirements:

  • Orders placed in the last 14 days will appear on the ORDERS page in ShippingEasy.

  • If you have orders older than 14 days, you can create manual orders for these shipments. [Learn more about creating manual orders.]

    If you are on a paid ShippingEasy plan, please [contact ShippingEasy support], as we may be able to sync BigCommerce orders older than 14 days. These orders must be in a status that can sync to ShippingEasy.

  • ShippingEasy has a maximum limit of 50 recipients per order for the order to be able to sync.

BigCommerce Integration Notes

Editing Orders and Shipments

  • For select platforms, ShippingEasy can recognize if an order is shipped within your store. If an order is shipped in BigCommerce, ShippingEasy will automatically clear the order from the ORDERS page the next time your BigCommerce store syncs.

  • If an order present on the ShippingEasy ORDERS page is canceled in BigCommerce, it will be removed from your ShippingEasy account.

  • If you change the recipient address for an order in BigCommerce, that change will update in ShippingEasy the next time your BigCommerce store syncs as long as the order is still on the ORDERS page in ShippingEasy.

    Orders will NOT update if:

    • The order is moved from the ORDERS page and later returned. Orders must remain on the ORDERS page to receive updates via the API during automatic sync.

    • If you manually adjust an order in ShippingEasy (add a line item, remove a line item, edit the address, etc.). We consider ShippingEasy to be the main source of information and will not check for updates within BigCommerce on future store syncs.

Combining and Splitting Orders

  • If you combine two BigCommerce orders in ShippingEasy, both orders will be updated in BigCommerce with the same tracking number after the order is shipped in ShippingEasy.

  • If you split a BigCommerce order in ShippingEasy, ShippingEasy will automatically update each tracking number to BigCommerce when each portion of the order is shipped as a partial shipment.

Email Notifications

You have the option to send email notifications from ShippingEasy to your customers. [Learn more about customizing and sending emails from ShippingEasy.]

If you would like to send emails from ShippingEasy, we recommend reviewing your BigCommerce email settings to ensure that your customers will not receive duplicate emails:

  1. Log into your BigCommerce admin account.

  2. Go to Advanced Settings > Order Notifications.

  3. Check or uncheck the boxes for emails you would like to send or not send.

  4. Save your changes.
