Follow the steps below to connect your BigCommerce store to your Click & Drop account in order to be able to automatically download and process your orders.
Within Click & Drop, click the 'Settings' link.
The 'Settings / Overview' page will open. In the 'Channels and Stores' section, click 'Go'.
Next, click the 'Add new integration' button.

A new pop-up window will appear asking you to install the Click & Drop app. Click the button, and you will be redirected to the BigCommerce website in a new tab. At this point, if you haven't already logged in to BigCommerce, you will be asked to log in.
On your BigCommerce dashboard, look for the menu bar on the left, and click 'Apps'.
From the next page, select 'Marketplace', and then type 'Click & Drop' in the search bar in the top right-hand corner of the page. You'll be presented with a list of matching apps, where you should find the 'Royal Mail Click & Drop app'. Select the Royal Mail Click & Drop app and on the next page, click 'Install'.

After confirmation, a window will appear to inform you that the app has been installed.

You will be returned to your 'Channels and stores' page. Click the 'Update and Activate' button to finalise the integration.
You can also choose to check the 'Mark orders as despatched' option to automatically mark your orders as 'Complete' in channel once your have manifested your order (OBA accounts) or paid for your label (Personal Accounts).
Once you have clicked the 'Update and activate' button, you will see your new integration on your 'Channels and stores' page in Click & Drop, and the link icon will turn green, as shown below.
Your BigCommerce orders will now begin downloading into Click & Drop.
If you view the Click & Drop app while logged into BigCommerce, the 'Install' button will be replaced with a 'Launch' button which will open Click & Drop, and an 'Uninstall' button to remove the Click & Drop app. Note that this will disconnect your channel in Click & Drop.
