Ecommerce solutions provider BigCommerce, formerly known as Interspire, has attracted a huge $15 million funding round from investors as it seeks to expand its current offerings that include web storefronts, SEO help, social media marketing and full integration with smartphones.
Big Commerce CEO Eddie Machaalani said of the investment: “We’ve been pushing back on outside funding because we’re profitable and we didn’t need the money. But our product has really taken off, and it made sense to raise capital and take advantage of the market’s potential.” BigCommerce, which is based in Australia and the US, claims to already power an astonishing 20k web storefronts who have done more than $350m in sales.
