Create versatile shopping experiences that power growth. In addition to a fully translated control panel and native-language support, retailers can use multi-language, multi-currency, secure payment capabilities and more to easily create local storefronts or expand their customer reach in new markets. Global merchants can also use Multi-Storefront to efficiently manage multiple storefronts, brands, customer segments and/or geographies from a single BigCommerce store.
Deliver an omnichannel shopping experience and surface new revenue streams. BigCommerce’s open SaaS approach enables direct integrations with global channels like Facebook Shopping, Instagram Shopping and TikTok Ads to help merchants develop strong omnichannel strategies to bolster sales.
Tap into B2B functionality to build powerful B2B storefronts. BigCommerce’s advanced suite of native functionality and strong ecosystem of integration partner applications make it easier for B2B merchants to offer seamless B2C-like experiences to customers.
