BigCommerce products

Product records need to exist in both Brightpearl and BigCommerce with matching and unique SKUs. Brightpearl does not manage product details on BigCommerce.

Product import

The product import is used to transfer products from BigCommerce into Brightpearl. The product import can be triggered from within the Brightpearl BigCommerce app and will create new product records if no matching SKU is found. The new product will be a non-stock tracked item with no inventory to ensure that no updates are sent to any other active sales channels where the same SKU might be in use. Once in Brightpearl the products can be switched to stock tracked in batch and inventory levels imported in bulk.

If a product with a matching SKU is found in Brightpearl, it will not be updated. Updates to existing SKUs in Brightpearl can be done directly, using a CSV upload or via the API.

The product import will transfer the following information, everything else will need to be updated in Brightpearl:

Variants

Both Brightpearl and BigCommerce support products with variants, such as size or color. When importing BigCommerce products the options and option values will also be created in Brightpearl. If the same options and option values already exist they will be re-used. Each variant is connected SKU-to-SKU.

Using bundles with BigCommerce

Even though BigCommerce does not provide a bundle feature, a Brightpearl bundle can be connected to a simple product in BigCommerce by using the same SKU. The bundle availability from Brightpearl will be used to update the product in BigCommerce.

When an order for the item is downloaded, Brightpearl will use the bundle item and add on all the separate components.
