LeadDyno offers an integration with the new Bigcommerce “Single Click” system, making it incredibly easy to get an affiliate program going for your Bigcommerce store. After completing this guide, your LeadDyno account will be set up so that you will have complete visibility into your store’s visitors, leads, and purchases, including crediting affiliates for traffic in which they send to your store.
The Bigcommerce integration also synchronizes custom Affiliate Codes you assign to affiliates as Bigcommerce coupons. This allows affiliates to pass around their affiliate code via offline means and still get credit for those sales.

The LeadDyno tracking integration makes use of the built-in ‘Google Analytics’ tracking setting of Bigcommerce. To enable it, login to your Bigcommerce control panel, and select the Advanced Settings tab on the menu on the left side of the screen.
Under Advanced Settings, choose the Data Solutions (formerly Web Analytics) option. Next, check Google Analytics and you'll be sent to the next screen.
Do NOT use the “Affiliate Conversion Tracking” option - this is for web-based conversion tracking which is not nearly as accurate as LeadDyno tracking which uses Bigcommerce webhooks.
A new tab will appear called Google Analytics. Click this tab, and make sure the 'Tracking Code' option is selected in the 'Connect with' tab.
After clicking Save, your Bigcommerce store will now have the tracking code on every page.
The Coupon Code Integration
To set up the coupon codes go to the LeadDyno App > Apps > BigCommerce Edit.
Here you can change both the set a default % or $ for new coupons uploaded to BigCommerce and whether there is a minimum purchase amount required for the coupon to work. Once enabled, we auto-upload coupon codes with a discount to BigCommerce when the affiliate selects a code as long as you (as a merchant) have the discount amount set on that settings page. Set a minimum purchase amount required to use a coupon and click Save.
You can always change individual coupon settings from within the Bigcommerce manage coupon tool to change more settings about the coupon. From this screen, you can also manually run a synchronization between LeadDyno and Bigcommerce. This happens several times a day automatically, but if you have a recent Bigcommerce sale that you need to show up immediately in LeadDyno as a purchase, you can manually start the job on this page.

To do this, you need to first find the affiliate in the Affiliates tab. Once the affiliate is accessed you will find the re-sync bigcommerce option in the Affiliate Status section.
