|Web browser interface||No|
|Application to install||No|
|Designed for use on mobile devices||Yes|
|Differences between the mobile and desktop service||The service is fully responsive and works across mobiles, desktop and other devices (TV, etc) with the same interface.|
|What users can and can't do using the API||
BigCommerce operates by default as a full ecommerce system, incorporating backend services as well as a mobile first responsive presentation layer.
All core functions are also available via the API to allow the platform to operate as a headless commerce system. Endpoints include:
- Product catalogue
- Customer tiered pricing lists
- Customer login
- Customer information
- Shopping basket
Each API endpoint allows for the creation of new records as well as reading existing records, and thus allows for the creation of separate presentation layers, seamless integration into apps and external websites, and integration with backend systems and services such as product information management, bookkeeping, warehouse management, customer relationship management and other services.
Performance constraints are significantly higher than competitors, with up to 400 transactions per second allowed by default.
System administrators manage access to the APIs via the platform interface to specified accounts with access level controls, ensuring that only the exact privileges required for each type of integration needs to be granted.
|API documentation formats||HTML|
|API sandbox or test environment||Yes|
|Description of customisation||
Users can customise almost all aspects of operation, from appearance through to product catalogue structure, from customer checkout process to order fulfilment and tracking.
If using BigCommerce in as a traditional ecommerce website, all controls are made through the web administration interface. In a headless capacity or if integrating with external services, the API can be used for data and record creation and consumption whilst the web administration interface is used for policy level controls.
Administration permissions are managed within the web interface and full access level controls are implemented, meaning that each user can be enabled to customise the elements within their responsibilities without granting access to elements outside of their responsibilities.
