Configure product SKUs
Stock Keeping Units (SKUs) are merchant-defined codes that uniquely identify products in a warehouse. It is critical that the SKUs defined in BigCommerce are identical to the SKUs loaded into your fulfillment provider's warehouse management system.
Gather shipping methods
As part of the third-party fulfillment setup process, the shipping methods offered in the eCommerce system must be mapped to the corresponding shipping codes used by the fulfillment center.
Gather API credentials
To enable API access, first gather your BigCommerce Store Hash.
Enable API access
To begin automating fulfillment, enter your BigCommerce API credentials in PackageBee, and authorize the PackageBee app in BigCommerce.
Enable inventory tracking
The BigCommerce integration supports inventory tracking.
Review order status
Setting the integration to Enabled will begin the process of automatically sending orders from BigCommerce to your fulfillment provider.
Requirements for imported orders
PackageBee will import orders that have the status Awaiting Fulfillment.
