BigCommerce App

BigCommerce is a platform for selling your products that offers inventory management and website customization. BigCommerce integrates directly with ShippingEasy and will automatically import orders from your store. Once shipped, shipment data will be sent back to your BigCommerce store.

You can access popular applications like ShippingEasy from right inside your BigCommerce account through the BigCommerce App Marketplace.

With the powerful Single Click Install feature of the BigCommerce Apps page, you can create a new ShippingEasy account and immediately integrate it with your BigCommerce store - all in a few easy steps.

Notes about the BigCommerce ShippingEasy App

Using the ShippingEasy App

  • You cannot access ShippingEasy as a BigCommerce App from multiple BigCommerce stores.

    However, you can set up multiple BigCommerce stores within your ShippingEasy account. Learn more about integrating your BigCommerce store with ShippingEasy.

  • You can integrate other stores and ecommerce platforms with the ShippingEasy account you created with BigCommerce Single Click Install.

Editing Orders and Shipments

  • If an order is shipped in BigCommerce, ShippingEasy will automatically clear the order from the ORDERS page the next time your BigCommerce store syncs in ShippingEasy.

  • 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 ShippingEasy 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 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. In BigCommerce, go to Advanced Settings > Order Notifications.

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

  3. Save your changes.
