Deprecations and Sunsets

This article provides a reference for deprecated APIs and exposes BigCommerce's plans to sunset specific API operations and properties. We recommend setting up a feed alert for our Developer Changelog to receive the most up-to-date information about API changes. For more information on how to set up a feed alert, see changelog.


The following APIs, features, and tools are deprecated. We discourage using these listed items, as BigCommerce either no longer supports them or won't be providing additional support or new features. Instead, consider using the suggested replacements.
