The BigCommerce for WordPress plugin requires:
- At least PHP 5.6 (7.1+ recommended)
- MySQL: 5.5+ (5.6+ recommended)
- WordPress: 4.8+
- The PHP intl extension is not required, but will enable better currency formatting
During the beta period, interested developers can go to https://bigcommerce.com/wordpress 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.
Plugin Installation in WordPress
Once you have the BigCommerce for WordPress plugin saved to your computer, go into the WordPress admin area and click on the Add New menu under the Plugins menu.
On the next page, in the top, click on the “Upload Plugin” button.
Then upload your plugin. Once the plugin is uploaded you’ll need to activate it.
Once the plugin is activated then you may follow the Setup Wizard.
