Learn about Pirate Ship's BigCommerce integration that lets you automatically import your orders and buy labels for them

Updated over a week ago

Pirate Ship’s BigCommerce integration makes it simple to import your orders and turn them into shipping labels.

Here's how our BigCommerce app works:

  • Connecting Your Store: To connect your BigCommerce store, just head to Settings > Integrations > Connect New Source > BigCommerce.

API Path and Token

  1. Login to your BigCommerce Dashboard and click ''Advanced Settings'' > ''API Accounts''.

  2. Click ''Create API Account'' > ''Create V2/V3 API Token''.

  3. Fill out the ''Name'' field with a nickname for the connection, like ''Pirate Ship''

  4. Copy/paste ''API Path'' they give you into Pirate Ship below.

  5. Under the OAuth Scopes settings in BigCommerce, select ''read-only'' access for Information & Settings and ''modify'' access for Orders.

  6. Click ''Save'' on the bottom right, and copy/paste your ''Access Token'' into Pirate Ship, then click Save Connection.

BigCommerce Settings

  • Order Statuses that Import: By default, Pirate Ship will only import orders with the status "Awaiting Shipment," but you can change this in Settings > Integrations > BigCommerce.

    • Once you've purchased a label, the order status will automatically be changed to "Shipped."
