If you operate within the world of ecommerce then it’s very likely you’ve heard of BigCommerce, an ecommerce service that helps you bring an online store to life, as well as list your products on Amazon, eBay and Facebook. However, WordPress users have never had the option to utilise BigCommerce’s myriad ecommerce features – until now, that is.
BigCommerce recently debuted BigCommerce for WordPress and users can sign up to join the early access developer beta and help shape the service as it comes to life.
Describing the new service as ‘the best of content and commerce combined’, BigCommerce have split the service’s features into three camps that tell potential users what they can expect:
Content + Commerce
You’ve built a beautiful thing. Branding that draws an audience, content that brings them back, and a site that flows perfectly. With BigCommerce for WordPress, you don’t have to compromise that beautiful thing for a fully customisable store.
Experience + Shopping
Commerce-as-a-Service lets you focus on tailoring your front-end experiences without treating ecommerce like an afterthought. Our BigCommerce integration lets your online store blend perfectly with the carefully crafted WordPress experience you’ve already built — meeting your customers’ expectations every step of the way.
Multiple Sites + One Control Panel
Even if you sell across multiple WordPress sites, you shouldn’t have to manage them all in separate places. BigCommerce gives you a single control panel to manage your catalog, orders, and shipping, all from one place. Streamline your admin experience and spend less time managing ecommerce.
While WooCommerce is the go-to for many WordPress users, it’s always great to see new services emerging and we’re looking forward to seeing how BigCommerce for WordPress performs when it is launched in full.
