Bigcommerce goes big time with a partnership with Braintree and PayPal to offer an end-to-end ecommerce solution that makes it even easier to launch and grow an online store. As a result, Bigcommerce merchants will benefit from a ton of business-accelerating features.
As part of the collaboration, Bigcommerce merchants will also get access to PayPal’s One Touch for web and mobile, enabling shoppers to pay across more than 90,000 online stores in a single touch, without needing to enter user IDs or passwords after their first login. The newly released payment option will be made available to all Bigcommerce merchants in the United States in the coming weeks, with international rollout expected later this year.
The joint integration gives Bigcommerce merchants one of the most seamless ways to access the broad capabilities of PayPal and Braintree. The integration connects Bigcommerce’s ecommerce platform with a comprehensive suite of payment services and tools from PayPal, including support for digital wallet payments both online and on mobile, consolidated business management tools and automated fraud protections. Additionally, merchants using One Touch for web and mobile will benefit from expedited transfers on sales through their online stores, a potential increase in conversions and average order values, as well as early access to all new payment methods supported by PayPal, across all devices, through a single integration.
Bigcommerce merchants will benefit from business-accelerating features, including:
• Built-in payment processing with support for all major credit and debit cards plus PayPal Express Checkout. Built-in payment processing allows business owners to start selling immediately, greatly simplifying the process of creating merchant services accounts. Additionally, an easy setup process helps merchants to quickly accept payments via PayPal Express Checkout, proven to help increase sales, and with One Touch it has the potential to help increase conversions by double-digits. Bigcommerce sites accepting PayPal average two times more spend per customer while processing 80% more orders each month.
• Mobile-ready payments. Bigcommerce’s responsive themes and PayPal’s mobile-ready payment solutions enable merchants to capture sales across all customer devices, with no additional coding required.
• Straightforward pricing and expert support. Through PayPal’s flexible flat-rate and volume-based pricing and dedicated, 24/7 support, business owners can run their business and process payments with peace of mind.
• Automated support for new payment methods. Built on the latest payment technology from Braintree, a PayPal Company, the integration enables merchants to adapt seamlessly to evolving payments trends, innovations and customer preferences without the need for additional integrations.
Bigcommerce supports more than 90,000 retailers around the world from its offices in San Francisco, Austin and Sydney.
