If you’re a merchant using the WordPress platform and looking to scale-up your ecommerce store, you’ll be interested to know that BigCommerce recently launched their new BigCommerce for WordPress plugin! If you’re unfamiliar, BigCommerce is a leading ecommerce platform, enabling businesses to grow online with simple, cost-effective and time saving software. They power over 60,000 small business eCommerce companies, plus large brands including GE, Toyota, Kodak, Camelbak, and Paul Mitchell.
This plugin gives merchants the best of both worlds, combining the flexibility of the WordPress platform with BigCommerce’s powerful commerce engine. While WordPress delivers the customizable front-end experience (the website), the powerful commerce engine of BigCommerce handles the business-specific aspects of the site like product catalog management, transaction & order management, shipping management and more.
Here are a few key highlights about the plugin:
- Streamline your operations and save time by managing orders, shipping, and catalog updates with one control panel for multiple WordPress sites.
- This integration is a great complement to the WordPress UX and creates a custom experience for your shoppers without checkout being an afterthought.
- Build complex catalogs and manage large order volume thanks to BigCommerce’s unrestricted scalability. No iFrames necessary!
- With streamlined security, you can reduce your risk and free up resources by letting BigCommerce take over the burden of PCI compliance and provide a secure checkout experience.
