This is where you can read about all the features we've introduced for BigCommerce. We will be continuously updating this page with any new features added. You can also learn about all our new features in the release notes updates that we regularly email.
January 2019 | Capture company name on contacts
Up until now all contacts created via the BigCommerce order download have been created without a company name. Now you can choose whether to capture the company name and when company name should be ignored, for example, if the customer has entered a company name of "None" or "Mr". This enables you to still capture the data but prevents contacts getting linked to companies when they shouldn't be. Enable contact company name in the Brightpearl BigCommerce app under customer settings.
August 2018 | Support for PayPal and Amazon Pay
To help support a wider range of payment methods, the Brightpearl BigCommerce app will first attempt to download a payment transaction but if no payment is found it will check the order for a payment method and use that information to create a payment in Brightpearl instead. The benefit of the payment download is that more payment gateway information can be captured in Brightpearl, but looking back to the order means Brightpearl orders will always be marked as paid where payment was taken, no matter what the payment method.
May 2018 | Stability improvements
Updates to the product and order download have helped to improve reliability and ensure updates are successfully received by BigCommerce.
May 2018 | Additional information captured for payments
The BigCommerce connector has been updated to begin using the new transactions API offered by BigCommerce. This means we capture more information on the payments created in Brightpearl as well as supporting additional gateways. The new information captured on a payment includes:
- Gateway name
- Payment event (captured, auth, void, etc.)
- Gateway transaction reference ID
This additional information can be viewed on the order payment in Brightpearl.
The newly supported gateways include:
- Amazon Pay
- Bank Deposit
- First Data gge4
- Gift Certificate
- Money Order
- Paypal Express
- Paypal Payments Pro US
- Paypal Payments Pro UK
- QBMS v2
- Secure Net
- Store Credit
- Test Gateway
- USA epay
