Integrating BigCommerce with RedTrack
To integrate BigCommerce with RedTrack you’ll need to:

- adjust the settings in BigCommerce (add the click_id parameter);
- connect RT and BigCommerce accounts by installing the app and inserting the script.

Expand to see how to act depending on the scenario
Scenarios for your tracking Campaigns in RedTrack may be as follows:
Scenario 1: only unattributed (aka organic) traffic. In which case, one Campaign for your unattributed (aka organic) source is enough.
Scenario 2: several paid Traffic sources (like Facebook or Google or something else) and unattributed (aka organic) traffic. In which case it is crucially important to add these Traffic sources first and then create a Campaign for each source. This will help you to have all the important data in place and grouped correctly.
5.1 Find more on Facebook and Google integration if you use any of them. If you work with some other paid traffic source, you can search for the integration guide here.
5.2 Add the traffic source for unattributed (aka organic) traffic. To do that:
5.2.1 go to Traffic channels-> New from template-> add the template named Other:
5.2.2 add the name “Other” or “Organic” or anything else you’d like in the Source name field in order to identify the unattributed traffic from other paid traffic sources:
5.3 Create campaigns with each of your sources or traffic. For example, if you have Facebook and organic (the one created in step 4.2), you should create 2 campaigns.
