How To Get API From BigCommerce
To generate BigCommerce store API Credentials, log into the store, then:
- Navigate to Advanced Settings > API Accounts > Create API Account.
- Give the account a name (internal only).
- In the OAuth Scopes section, select the minimum scopes the app will require.
- Select Save.
.txtfile containing the same credentials will (on most browsers) automatically download to your computer. This file also contains the base API Path for your store, preconfigured for the v3 API. The base API path will look something like this:
https://api.bigcommerce.com/stores/123456/. In the base path, the store hash is the
123456. This will be used to make API requests. To get started making requests, see API Requests.
