BigCommerce for Wordpress



The BigCommerce for WordPress plugin requires:

  • At least PHP 5.6 (7.1+ recommended)
  • MySQL: 5.5+ (5.6+ recommended)
  • WordPress: 4.8+
  • SSL
  • The PHP intl extension is not required, but will enable better currency formatting


During the beta period, interested developers can go to and sign up for access to our github repo. From there you can download a zip of the latest version and install it as a normal plugin.

If you do a pull then you’ll need to build assets, so it’s recommended that you download the zip file.
