Bigcommerce, a leading SMB and enterprise software provider of ecommerce solutions, has partnered with PayPal to offer seamless checkout experience for the customers. The integration allows customers to pay across 90,000 online stores powered by Bigcommerce with a convenience of entering user IDs or passwords only in the first login. The partnership also allows customers to checkout through PayPal’s One Touch feature for web and mobile.
As PayPal is a trusted payment processor in the world, the partnership poses a big win for Bigcommerce to reduce cart abandonment by customers. Cart abandonment generally takes place due to the lack of confidence in the merchant’s ability to handle credit card and other sensitive information. The one-click feature of PayPal helps Bigcommerce in providing a smooth checkout process to its customers.
Bigcommerce’s partnership with PayPal has complemented the former’s operations in offering a seamless ecommerce experience with the following features:
Built-in payment plus PayPal Express Checkout:
Built-in payment processing supports all major credit and debit cards with PayPal Express Checkout facility. Built-in payment processing allows business owners to start selling immediately. The system has a simplified process of creating merchant services accounts with an easy setup of PayPal Express Checkout to accept payments quickly.
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:
PayPal’s flat-rate and volume-based pricing and 24/7 support helps business owners to conduct business with fewer complications.
Automated support for new payment methods:
As the system is built on the latest payment technology from Braintree, the collaboration with PayPal enables merchants to adapt to evolving payments trends, innovations and customer preferences without the need for additional integrations.
