BigCommerce

BigCommerce is an online shopping website builder created in 2009.

Focused on helping retailers grow their online sales it offers over 100 website templates but also the ability to tailor most aspects of the site.

Beyond the standard product and information pages, you can add additional content via the WYSIWYG code editor. Although there are limits to what type of HTML code can be embedded it's easy to add a Blipstar store locator, by following these instructions:

  1. Log in to your BigCommerce account
  2. From the main menu select Storefront Content > Web Pages
  3. Either Create a Web Page or edit an existing one
  4. For the Web Site Link choose "Contain content created using the WYSIWYG editor below"
  5. In Web Page Details, under Page Content click the HTML button (far right) in the WYSIWYG editor. Here's a screenshot highlighting the HTML button: HTML button on the WYSISYG editor
  6. Copy the following Blipstar code snippet into the HTML Source Editor
  7. <iframe width='100%' height='502' src='https://blipstar.com/search?uid=2435124' frameborder='0'></iframe>
  8. Click Update
Tip: Because BigCommerce pages use SSL (for security) you need to use secure blipstar urls.


Once created, when you go to your new page the locator should appear embedded within.

The whole process should take less than five minutes but let us know if you have any issues when integrating.
