Connecting your BigCommerce and Pixelz accounts enables you to submit product images for editing and publishing without repetitive uploading and downloading. To put it simply, use the Pixelz app to sync your images! Save time, save money, and seamlessly integrate advanced image editing into your workflow.
Follow these 3 steps and you can have edited product images online in no time.
1. Install the app
Visit the Bigcommerce app store, search for Pixelz, and click “Install.”
You will be taken to a confirmation page to review the app access and security features. To continue with the installation simply click “Confirm.”
If you don’t already have a Pixelz account set up, click “Sign Up With Email” and follow these instructions to create your Pixelz account. If you already have a Pixelz account set up, click “Log in here”.
Once your Pixelz account is created, or you have logged in to your existing account, the app will automatically begin analyzing your Bigcommerce store for existing images to sync with your Pixelz account. Depending on the size of your store, this process could take anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours. Don’t worry if you close your tab or browser during this process, you will receive an email when your store sync is complete.
2. Submit an order
Once your Bigcommerce store is synced to your Pixelz account, you can select the images that you would like to have edited. You can review your images manually or use the search, sort, and filter options in the column to the left of the page.
Once you have a list of the images from your Bigcommerce store to edit, click the circle on the individual image and it will be added to your cart. You can also choose “Select All” to add all the images on the page to your cart. Don’t worry about accidentally adding duplicate images; the app is designed to remove duplicates from your order.
After all of your images have been selected for your order, click “Continue.”
After you have your images selected, it’s time to choose a specification for your order. A specification will describe to our production team how your images should be edited. You can choose an existing specification or create a new custom order specification.
After you have created a new specification, or chosen an existing one, you will see the order price update at the bottom of the screen. Click “Continue” to move forward with your order.
Once your specification is added, you will be taken to the confirmation screen to review, make any changes, add a comment, or approve your order. If your order is ready to be processed, click on the “Pay Now” button to be taken to the payment screen.
On the payment screen, select your method of payment (credit card or PayPal), fill out the required fields, then click “Complete Payment.” You also have the option to save a credit card on file to be used for future orders.
Once your payment is submitted, your order will be sent to our production team and completed within 24 hours. You will be notified via email when your order is ready to be reviewed and published to your store.
3. Publish images to your BigCommerce store
When your images are ready for review, you will receive an email alerting you to login to your account and approve your images for publishing.
When you login to your Pixelz account, you will see your recently completed orders on the home screen. Click on “Go To Order” to be taken to your images.
Next, you can click “View” to further review your images or you can click on “Publish” to begin sending images to your Bigcommerce store through the Connector. You don’t have to download or upload anything – the app will do all that work for you.
If you have chosen to review your images first, when you’re ready to send them to your Bigcommerce store click the “Publish” button to start the publishing process.
The next page will provide you with your current store options for publishing, based on the apps and connectors you have set up within your Pixelz account. Choose the Bigcommerce option as the location to publish the images from your order.
Once you’ve selected your Bigcommerce store, you will be taken to the Publish and Approve screen to begin defining how you want to publish your images to your store. Here you will see before and after versions of your edited images, along with the image details when selected.
On the Approve and Publish screen, you can use the drop down menu to the right of the images to decide how these images should be sent to your store. You can choose to Overwrite, Append, Skip or copy the image to another product in your Bigcommerce store.
Once you make a selection the description for that action will be displayed underneath the drop down menu, so you know exactly how the image will be published.
After you have chosen a publishing method for all of your images, click the “Approve and Publish Changes” button to push the new images into your Bigcommerce store.
After publishing your images, you will be taken to a confirmation screen that will show you a log of published images for your order.
That’s it! You can now log into your Bigcommerce account and see your updated images published to your store.
