IMPORTANT NOTE

There can be a case where you will notice that post connecting your Outgrow account with your BigCommerce account, no products will be shown while trying to import products from BigCommerce to Outgrow. This can happen even when you have given full access to the API for accessing Carts, Checkouts, Themes and Products.

In this case, you can check your BigCommerce account and ensure that you have access to the required scope to access the actual store. You can check the store scope as shown here.
