Storefront APIs

base url https://store_url/api/

BigCommerce provides several storefront APIs which are intended to be consumed via JavaScript in the context of a storefront shopping session. These APIs do not use OAuth, instead opting for session-based authentication, or in some cases JWT. The currently available storefront APIs are:

Storefront API/APPS

Customer Login API

The Customer Login API allows your app to generate a token to programmatically log in a storefront customer, by using the login entry point at /login/token/{token}. Here, {token} must be a JSON Web Token (JWT) containing the parameters for the customer login request in its payload, and must be signed by your OAuth application’s client secret.

This API is appropriate for any use case where you need to programmatically log in a storefront customer. For example:

For a full overview of the JWT standard, please see JWT.IO, where you will find links to client libraries (in many languages) that facilitate the generation and verification of JWT tokens. BigCommerce also supplies helper methods for generating login tokens in our API Client Libraries.

Customer Login Token

A valid JWT token is a string composed of three parts, separated by periods (“.”). Please refer to JWT.IO and RFC 7519 for more details on the format.

Example Token URL

https://storedomain.com/login/token/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9 .eyJzdWIiOiIxMjM0NTY3ODkwIiwibmFtZSI6IkpvaG4gRG9lIiwiYWRtaW4iOnRydWV9 .TJVA95OrM7E2cBab30RMHrHDcEfxjoYZgeFONFh7HgQ

Example Token Header

{ "typ": "JWT", "alg": "HS256" }

Example Payload

{ "iss": "abc123", "iat": 123456789, "jti": "This is a completely unique string, ideally a UUID", "operation": "customer_login", "store_hash": "abc123", "customer_id": 12345, "redirect_to": "/account.php", "request_ip": "111.222.333.444" }

Fields

Field Name Type Description
iss string Indicates the token’s issuer. This is your application’s client ID, which is obtained during application registration in Developer Portal.
iat integer Time when the token was generated. This is a numeric value indicating the number of seconds since the Unix epoch.
jti string Request ID string that must be unique across all requests made by your app. A UUID or other random string would be an appropriate value.
operation enum Must contain the string “customer_login”.
store_hash string Store hash identifying the store you are logging into.
customer_id integer ID of the customer you are logging in, as obtained through the Customer API.
redirect_to string Optional field containing a relative path for the shopper’s destination after login. Will default to /account.php.
request_ip string Optional field containing the expected IP address for the request.

Signature

The headers and payload must be signed using HS256 (HMAC-SHA256) and the application’s client secret.

Sample Code

Code to generate a valid JWT token for a storefront login request is provided in our API Client Libraries. (The list items below are linked to the live code, which might have been updated since the publication of the code samples here:)

OAuth Scope

In order to use this feature, your app must be installed in the store, and must have the customers_login scope.

Redirection

For flexibility in navigation after login, we support an optional redirect parameter (redirect_to), which in turn supports relative URLs. If the parameter is not specified, the storefront customer will land on their My Account page at /account.php.

Notes

Tokens will be valid for a very short timeframe after they are first generated, so tokens should not be generated in advance. Instead, the application should generate the token and then immediately redirect the user’s browser to /login/token/{token}. If you’re seeing issues related to your system time differing from BC’s server time, you can use the /v2/time endpoint as a source of truth.

Once a request has been made with a given jti, it cannot be made again. This parameter is used to prevent replay attacks by malicious actors intercepting the request or obtaining it after the fact.

The request_ip field can be used as an additional security precaution, to prevent a malicious actor from intercepting the request and making it from another browser or system before you do. If you supply this value, BigCommerce will check the incoming request to ensure that it is being made from the stated IP address – and will otherwise fail the request. We strongly encourage setting this IP address value; but doing so is optional, to support those cases where this information is not available.

Identifying Logged-In Customers Securely

If your application interacts dynamically with the BigCommerce storefront, and conveys information that is specific to a particular logged-in customer, you must confirm that customer’s identity within the insecure environment of the user’s browser.

To address this need, BigCommerce provides a Current Customer endpoint, which your app can access via JavaScript on the storefront. This endpoint returns a JWT (JSON Web Token) with identifying details about the customer. The information is signed with your OAuth client secret.

Example JavaScript

Below is example JavaScript that will access this JWT. To test the JWT functionality, you can install this JavaScript on your sandbox BigCommerce store. Your application’s Client ID must be included in the request (to identify the requesting application):

If you are logged into the storefront with a customer account, the above JavaScript should alert to the browser with a JWT token. If no customer is logged in, BigCommerce will return a 404 response, and you will see an error message.

The JWT returned from this endpoint (example below) can be decoded on JWT.IO, or via any of these libraries.

Example Output

By design, your application should send this token to the application’s server, validate it against your client secret, and then use it as a trusted indication of the logged-in customer’s identity, before displaying confidential information to them.

An end-to-end example, which displays a customer’s recently purchased products, is available in our Ruby and PHP sample apps.

Add-to-Cart URLs

Your apps can use a product’s or variant’s SKU to create custom product URLs in order to perform specific actions, like:

Select Specific SKU (Product/Variant) on Product Detail Page

To link to a specific product variant, append ?sku=INSERT-SKU-HERE to the product URL, as shown below. This will link to the product page, with the variant’s options already selected.

Structure:

site.com/sample-test-product-w-options/?sku=INSERT-SKU-HERE

Example:

myawesomestore.com/shirt/?sku=SHIRT-SM-RED

Add Specific SKU to Cart

To automatically add a product or variant to a shopper’s cart and take them directly to the cart page, append
cart.php?action=add&sku=INSERT-SKU-HERE to the store’s domain.

Structure:

site.com/cart.php?action=add&sku=INSERT-SKU-HERE

Example:

myawesomestore.com/cart.php?action=add&sku=SHIRT-SM-RED

Add Specific SKU to Cart and Go Directly to Checkout

To automatically add a product or variant to a shopper’s cart and forward them directly to checkout, append
cart.php?action=buy&sku=INSERT-SKU-HERE to the store’s domain.

Structure:

site.com/cart.php?action=buy&sku=INSERT-SKU-HERE

Example:

myawesomestore.com/cart.php?action=buy&sku=SHIRT-SM-RED

Add Specific SKU, Go to Checkout, and Include Source

To automatically add a product or variant to a shopper’s cart, forward them to checkout, and also include a source parameter for analytics/conversion tracking, append cart.php?action=buy&sku=INSERT-SKU-HERE&source=SOURCE-HERE to the store’s domain. (The source parameter can be any string.)

Structure:

site.com/cart.php?action=buy&sku=INSERT-SKU-HERE&source=SOURCE-HERE

Example:

myawesomestore.com/cart.php?action=buy&sku=SHIRT-SM-RED&source=JULY-EMAIL-NEWSLETTER

Storefront Cart API

base url: https://store_url/api/storefront/

The Storefront Cart API allows applications to programmatically create shopping carts, and to manage those carts’ contents. This does not require authentication as it can only access the current session or cart.

This API exposes many of the same resources and operations that are provided in BigCommerce’s v3 Server-to-Server Cart API. However, to maintain stores’ security, some operations are not provided here. The limitations basically correspond to BigCommerce’s restrictions on the actions a shopper would be allowed to take on a BigCommerce storefront.

Run in Postman

getCarts

When getting a cart with product options, you will need to add an ?include?include=lineItems.physicalItems.options,lineItems.digitalItems.options for example.
