BigCommerce Setup

Use this guide to connect BigCommerce and BlueSnap for an integrated eCommerce platform, shopping cart, and payments solution.

Requirements

BigCommerce and BlueSnap accounts

You must have accounts at both BigCommerce and BlueSnap to proceed.

If you need a BigCommerce account, go to the BigCommerce site to sign up.
If you need a BlueSnap account, go to the BlueSnap website to get started.

Before you get started:

Contact your Implementation Manager or Merchant support to get your BlueSnap account ready for integration. BlueSnap will provide you with gateway credentials, which you will use in Step 2.

Step 1: Configure your BlueSnap account settings

Please complete these steps in your BlueSnap Console.

  1. In this step, you'll set up your statement descriptor - the description that will appear on the shopper's credit card/bank statement for each transaction to help them identify the purchase.

    Go to Settings > General Settings. In the Branding Settings section, enter a Default Statement (Soft) Descriptor and Support Phone Number (both will appear on the shopper's credit card/bank statement). When you're done, click Submit.

  2. To get paid, you will need to configure your payout settings by going to Settings > Payout Method. Click here for more information.

Step 2: Configure your BigCommerce account settings

Please complete these steps in your BigCommerce account. Note that you'll need your gateway credentials from BlueSnap at this time.

  1. Go to Store Setup > Payments. Click the Online Payment Methods section to expand it, and click Set up next to NMI.
  1. Configure the following settings:

    • Display Name - Enter the name that the shopper will see during checkout. For example, you might enter Credit Cards.
    • Gateway Username - Enter your gateway username that BlueSnap provided.
    • Gateway Password - Enter your gateway password that BlueSnap provided.
    • Require CVV - We recommend setting this to Yes to require shoppers to enter their CVV during checkout.
      Note: Please leave Transaction Type and Duplicate Window to their default settings.

      Click Save.
  1. Go back to Checkout Payment Settings, and de-select Enable test credit card payments.

Awesome! You're ready to start accepting live transactions.
