Bigcommerce

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 setup 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.

Install the LeadDyno Bigcommerce App (App Store)

Navigate to the BigCommerce App Store and search for LeadDyno or visit the LeadDyno BigCommerce App Page. After finding the app, click Get this App.

and you will be prompted to use an existing store or create a new store.

Click Install to add the LeadDyno BigCommerce app. 

Agree to the terms and click Confirm.

The app install is complete when you see the app added to your LeadDyno account within your Bigcommerce store. 

The Install the LeadDyno Bigcommerce App (Manually - Legacy)

If you are using the Bigcommerce legacy theme engine called Blueprint, Bigcommerce will not support LeadDyno to automatically setup the javascript on your site using. If possible, the best option is to install a Stencil theme and re-install the LeadDyno app and then we will automatically setup the javascript for you.

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 Web Analytics option. Next, check the Google Analytics option in the Providers box, and click Save

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 “Manually add Google Analytics tracking Code” is selected.

Paste the code into the box that was given to you just after adding the LeadDyno app. You can grab the code from Tools > Get Javascript. It is like the code below but with Your Public Key

<script type="text/javascript" src="https://static.leaddyno.com/js"></script>
<script>
  LeadDyno.key = "YOUR_PUBLIC_KEY";
  LeadDyno.recordVisit();
  LeadDyno.autoWatch();
 </script>

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 in 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.
