Logging in to your Plytix account

If you already have a Plytix account, click “Log in”. After logging in, a dropdown of all the accounts you are a user in will show up. 

Please note that you will only be able to select an account to connect BigCommerce to if:

  • The channels module is activated in the account
  • You have channel editing permissions

The button “Connect the account” will automatically be enabled for an account that meets both of these requirements.

ℹ️ If you’re facing any issues or would like to add channels in an account to access the BigCommerce connector, feel free to reach out to us by clicking the chat icon on the bottom right of the log in/sign up page.

Select an account and click “Connect this account”.

After setting up your BigCommerce connector, you can create a different BigCommerce channel and select a different storefront within the same store. Refer to the end of this article for a guide on how to do it.
