  • Brand Management: Toggle Brand Management on or off.
    Please Note:
    The default is set to off.
    • When the toggle is off, the Wondersign Connector manages only its brands in BigCommerce. It does not affect brands that have been manually created by you or other third-party integrations directly in BigCommerce. Product syncs will only impact the brands managed by the Wondersign Connector.
    • When the toggle is on, the Wondersign Connector App controls all brands in BigCommerce. The connector will create, update, and delete all BigCommerce brands according to what is assigned to sync from the Wondersign platform. Brands that are not assigned to any products included in the product sync will be deleted.

    Please Note:

    • When the toggle is off, the Wondersign Connector manages only its categories in BigCommerce.  It does not affect categories in BigCommerce that have been manually created by you or other third-party integrations. Product syncs will only impact the categories managed by the Wondersign Connector.
    • When the toggle is on, the Wondersign Connector controls all categories in BigCommerce.  The connector will create, update, and delete all BigCommerce categories. Categories that are not assigned to any products included in the product sync will be deleted.

  • If Category Management is on, select your structure:
    • 2-Tier Hierarchy:  Categories are structured in a 2-tier hierarchy, similar to the Catalog Kiosk category levels. 
      • Example: Bedroom > Beds
    • 3-Tier Hierarchy: Categories are structured in a 3-tier hierarchy, which includes the department, category, and name.
      • Example: Furniture > Bedroom > Beds

  • Enable Shipping Rate: Toggle Enable Shipping Rate on or off.
    • When the toggle is off, the Wondersign Connector does not affect the BigCommerce fixed shipping price field.
    • When the toggle is on, the BigCommerce fixed shipping price is the same as the Catalog Kiosk's products service rate, enabled through the connector.
