The merchant completed onboarding but the channel does not see them in their list of merchants

BigCommerce merchants may connect with Violet directly through their admin portal while installing the Violet App. However, this will not connect that merchant with the channel.

To connect with the channel, the merchant must use the link provided by the channel and complete the process there. Note that nothing needs to be deleted or modified in this case, Violet supports many to many channel/merchant linking.

Merchants must have 3rd party cookies enabled and any ad-blockers or browser shields in their browser disabled when using . It is recommended that these actions are taken before they begin the connection process.
