Connect your Hygraph project to BigCommerce

BigCommerce is a SaaS provider for merchants running online businesses. The company's platform includes online store creation, search engine optimization, hosting, and marketing and security for small to enterprise sized businesses.

#What you can do with the Hygraph-BigCommerce integration

With this app you can continue to use BigCommerce as your preferred headless commerce solution for products and eCommerce assets. By installing the BigCommerce app, you can bring your BigCommerce products into Hygraph projects with the rest of your content.

#Prerequisites to use this integration

  • You must have a Hygraph account. If you don't have one, you can create one here.

  • You must have a Hygraph project.

  • You must have a BigCommerce account. If you don't have one yet, you can visit their website and contact their team.

  • You must have your BigCommerce Storefront ID and API token:

    • Storefront ID: You can easily find this value in the URL of your BigCommerce dashboard between store- and .mybigcommerce.com/manage/dashboard.

    • API Token: The API Token is the Access Token in your BigCommerce dashboard. You can find it by going to Settings > API > Store-level API accounts > Create API account. Make sure you enable full permissions and save.

      After you save, a window will pop up displaying the BigCommerce API credentials, and a .txt file containing your Access token will automatically download.
