This article will guide you through the stages you need to take in order to give Frooition's BigCommerce designers access to your store. This is required so that we can create, check and manage all aspects of the build and installation.


USER ACCOUNT:

  • Login to your BigCommerce account
  • Navigate to Account Settings > Users
  • Create a User Account
  • Add the email address: creative@froo.com
  • Set the User Role to Store Administrator (This gives us the permissions we need)
  • You may need to add us to any 3rd party Single Click Apps if that was part of the proposal
  • Click Save


This video will show you how to complete the steps mentioned above.



We will also need the API details in order to develop the store.


Create Stencil API details:

  • Login to your BigCommerce account
  • Navigate to Advanced Settings > API Accounts
  • Click Create API Account
  • Click Create Stencil-CLI Token
  • Name the agency as Frooition
  • Click Publish Theme (IMPORTANT!) we cannot install without this
  • Click Save in the bottom right of the page.
  • A pop up will appear with an 'Access Token' and a 'Terminal Quickstart'. You get a text document that downloads in your browser, this can be sent over to your Frooition contact.
    • Alternatively you can copy and paste these codes into an email to your Frooition contact, once you close the pop up window. You will not be able to gain access to them again.

Your Account Manager will tell you if this is required.
