Using Optional Bigcommerce Fields

To use an optional Bigcommerce field, create the corresponding product attribute in your Solid Commerce account. See the table below for the correct product attribute names. The data you enter in the product attributes must be formatted to meet Bigcommerce's specifications.

To update an optional field on an active listing, first revise the product attribute field in Solid Commerce. Next, select the listings you want to update in your My Store Market List and click the Update Listings button.

For more information about Product Attributes, please see Creating and Using Custom Product Attributes.

  • Hello Kim,

    Thank you for the feedback! We appreciate requests for improvements.

    I have emailed one of our developers to see if we might already support one or both of these fields/sections.

    I will let you know what I find out and we will move forward from there.

    Best regards,

  • Kim,

    Thank you for following up.

    I apologize for the delayed response. The developer I emailed originally is usually very responsive. I sent him a reminder. I will let you know what I learn.

    Thanks again,

  • Kim,

    I apologize for the delay in getting back to you.

    When creating a new listing, we push the field Manufacturer as long as the Brand already exists in Bigcommerce. Due to limitations with Bigcommerce's Product API, we are unable to create, edit or remove brands during the listing process. You can do this through the Brands section of your Bigcommerce account.

    Unfortunately, their API does not allow adding product tags when listing either. Based on my research, Bigcommerce support recommended in the past to use the Search Keywords in place of Product Tags to store your data.
