Learn how to integrate with BigCommerce

Before You Begin

There are a few items that need to be in place before you start the integration:

Optimized One-Page Checkout

Skipify Connected Checkout initiates with email recognition, so to ensure a seamless shopper experience, you should ensure the email field is on the top of the checkout page. We strongly recommend using the Optimized One-Page Checkout which can be enabled by doing the following:

  1. Login to the BigCommerce Control Panel
  2. Click on Settings > Advanced Settings > Checkout
  3. Select Optimized One-Page Checkout

If you’re leveraging a Custom Checkout, the email address field must be on the top of the checkout page. You will be able to modify your layout under Checkout Styling > Open Page Builder.

Enable Guest Checkout

Skipify’s Connected Checkout solution allows each guest to experience a frictionless checkout flow with all of the benefits of a returning customer journey. Here's how to enable guest checkout on BigCommerce:

  1. Click on Settings > Advanced Settings > Checkout
  2. Under the Customer heading, select Customers are not required to have an account to check out
  3. Under the Existing Accounts heading, select Allow customers with existing accounts to check out as guests

Set Currency to USD

At this time, Skipify only enables transactions in USD (US dollars). To set the default currency:

  1. Click on Settings > Setup > Payments
  2. Select USD (US DOLLAR) from the Show payment methods for dropdown menu



Even if you complete transactions in other currencies, the default MUST be set to USD
