In your BigCommerce control panel

  1. Go to Settings > Store Settings > Payments from the menu on the left

    • Display Name: This is how 2Checkout will be shown to shoppers if you offer them more than one payment provider to choose from.
    • Seller ID: You can find your Seller ID at the top of the page in your 2Checkout admin.
    • Secret Word: The secret word you assigned to your 2Checkout account when following the instructions above.
