  1. Login to the BigCommerce Admin Panel.
  2. Go to Advanced Settings, then API Accounts. Click the “Create API Account” button at the top of the page.
  3. Note the value of API Path. It should look something like https://api.bigcommerce.com/stores/ysle1xlmo5/v3/
  4. Set the name to WordPress, then set OAuth Scopes to Products – read-only.
  5. Click the save button, and note the values of Client ID and Access Token.

Install the WordPress part of this mod as usual (using the Install button

  1. In your WordPress admin, do the following:

– In Plugins->Installed Plugins, click the “Activate” link under Product Display for BigCommerce.

To show a specific product on your blog, use the shortcode

[bcpd_product_display┬áid=”107″]

The id is shown in the URL when you edit a product in your admin.

Are there any requirements for products I’d like to display?

The product should be visible in the Online Store (set in the Other Details tab on the Product Editing screen).

I use a currency other than dollars – how do I change the price display?

Modify product_display_for_bigcommerce.php and change the function bcpd_product_display_price.
