BigCommerce for Wordpress
When you use BigCommerce for WordPress, your storefront is rendered by WordPress rather than BigCommerce, so some apps that you use for a BigCommerce-powered storefront may no longer be compatible.
For the most part, any app that operates solely on the backend can be used without modification on WordPress. This includes apps that interface with our catalog, order, shipping, and customer APIs. You can find hundreds of compatible apps in these categories:
- Accounting & Tax
- Catalog & Order Management
- Data Transfer & Migration Services
- Sales Channels
- Shipping & Fulfillment
Apps that modify the storefront are currently not supported. This includes Customer Acquisition & Retention apps show banners, pop-ups, or other storefront modifications.
Although a specific BigCommerce app may not be available, you may be able to find an alternative in the WordPress Plugin Directory. For example, some companies, like Mailchimp, build both BigCommerce apps and WordPress plugins. Keep that in mind when searching for a solution.
It’s also possible to integrate into BigCommerce for WordPress by creating additional plugins that hook into and extend functionality; for example, Bolt’s WordPress plugin: Bolt Checkout for BigCommerce.
