How does Partial.ly handle my BC orders?
When the customer selects Partial.ly as their payment option, a BC order will automatically be created. The BC order status of an opened or paid plan is controled by you within your BigCommerce Settings.
BigCommerce Settings within Partial.ly
There are a couple settings which can control how Partial.ly integrates with BigCommerce.
You can access and adjust these setting from your account at partial.ly/login under Settings > Integrations > BigCommerce Settings.
Order Statuses: Select what status you would like the BC order to have when a plan is opened or paid.
Notifications: Get a notification in the event an order fails to submit to BigCommerce.
Coupon codes: Allow customers to use BC coupon codes with their Partial.ly plans.
Abandoned Orders:You can drive up sales by configuring Partial.ly to automatically send a payment plan offer to customers who do not complete BigCommerce checkout.
Payment plans created from abandoned cart rescue messages will be subject to an additional 0.5% fee. See the bigcommerce abandoned cart settings page for more info.
We highly recommend you review all other merchant settings within your Partial.ly merchant account at partial.ly/login.
For example, if the products you are selling require shipping, be sure require shipping addressses under Settings > Checkout and configure shipping zones and shipping rates under Settings > Shipping.
BigCommerce order creation may fail if your shop is set to require shipping addresses but you do not have Partial.ly set to collect addresses.
