How to get started

In this article we will walk you through integrating Plisio into your Bigcommerce Store, as well as summarize some of the benefits of accepting cryptocurrencies. We’ve also prepared a guide for you on how to integrate a cryptocurrency payment into your website.

Now that we've discussed the benefits of accepting Cryptocurrency and choosing Plisio, let's take a look at how to integrate Plisio into Bigcommerce.

What we expect from the integration:

There are several ways of integrating Plisio into the Bigcommerce platform. While we’re on it, we want to make sure that all of our integrations meet a few requirements, and also warn you about some pitfalls.

  • We would like to keep all of our orders inside of Bigcommerce’s platform. This includes using Bigcommerce’s checkout option to securely generate the order, collect the buyer’s info, calculate shipping costs and taxes, offer discounts or coupon codes, etc.
  • We would also want your customers to be able to review their order history that will be kept in our Bigcommerce store.
  • We want to keep the “Pending Payment'' status of your order until we can manually verify that we have received the crypto payment. This will allow us to make sure that all Blockchain confirmations are received before changing the order status to “payment received”.
  • We want to be able to use our standard Shipping and Bookkeeping integrations for Bigcommerce, without requiring any additional plugins or software to add Plisio to our store.

The pitfalls:

  • One of the Bigcommerce’s cons is that they do not offer any cryptocurrency payment options for merchants. This can be resolved with a custom code that will allow you to integrate your own Payment Gateway into the Checkout process.
  • Unfortunately, Bigcommerce's new Stencil Theme does not allow merchants to directly customize or add code/scripts to the checkout process. They have mentioned adding the customization option in the future, but for now it is on hold. So we’ve got to get creative to get around this.
  • We’ll need to be able to securely send the order information such as the order ID and the Order Total (Price) to the Plisio Platform while making sure there are no wrong order details sent.

Our Two Integration Options for Bigcommerce

Option #1: Install a "Pay With Cryptocurrency" Button to the Order Confirmation Page, allowing the customer to make payment while checking out.

Option #2: Or install a "Pay With Cryptocurrency" Button to the Customer Dashboard, so that they can pay from their order history page.

In this guide, we will show you how to integrate these two options: Although you will only need the option #1, the other option suggests a back-up in case the customer’s payment fails in the first attempt. With this option, they can reattempt the payment for the second time. You can integrate one of the two options you prefer.

Create a Plisio payment option on Bigcommerce

  • Log into your Bigcommerce Admin Dashboard.
  • Click on "Store Setup" located on the left.
  • Select one from the available “Payments” options.
  • Locate the “Offline Payment Methods” option located on the page top.
  • Slide to the “Bank Deposit”.
  • Select the "Bank Deposit Settings" tab on the page top.
  • Fill out the details as desired for your store.

Option #1: Installing the Button to your Bigcommerce Checkout Page.

Log into your Bigcommerce Admin Dashboard.

Conversion Tracking Snippet:

Click on the Advanced Settings tab on the left.

Choose the "Data Solutions" option from the left tab.

Now Enable "Affiliate Conversion Tracking" and paste the "Affiliate Conversion Tracking snippet" from our guide. (Do not remove/edit anything else in this text box unless you know what you're doing)

Click Save.

Now this time we'll enable the "Google Analytics" Tab.

This part is important: If the Google Analytics text box is completely empty we'll need to put in empty script tags. This is just used as a placeholder so that bigcommerce enables the Google Analytics Pixel we need to get some details from.

<script> </script>

If the "Google Analytics" text box already has something else in it, such as your Google Analytics Scripts, there's no need to put in the above empty script tags, as the other scripts in the text box already enables the Google Analytics Pixel we need. (Please Note: If the "Google Analytics" Pixel is not enabled, during checkout our payment button might fail to properly pass Tax and Shipping Chargers).

Order Page Payment Button:

Click on the Storefront tab on the left.

Choose the "My Themes" option from the left tab.

Option #2: Installing the Button into your Bigcommerce Order History Page.

Click on the Storefront tab on the left.

Choose the "My Themes" option from the left tab.

Click on "Make a Copy" for your current theme.

(If you already made a copy of theme like in option #2 then just skip this part to select “Edit Theme Files”)

Choose new theme name, for example “Plisio”, press “Save a Copy”.

Apply a new theme.

Click on the “Advanced” tab of the new theme.

Select "Edit Theme Files" from the dropdown.

This will add the Plisio payment button to your store.

Press Save.

Testing, Finishing Up and Marking Payments as Received.

You should generate a test order for your store.Use the Plisio Payment option and go through the entire checkout process to make sure everything works as intended.

Make sure that all installed button options on the Checkout Page and Customer Order History Page work correctly.
