Now BigCommerce customers can more easily offer shoppers flexible consumer financing options with PayPal Credit, access innovative business financing through PayPal Working Capital and gain increased insight into their shoppers with the recently-launched PayPal Marketing Solutions through a new exclusive app for BigCommerce customers.
BigCommerce and PayPal have partnered since 2013 to help merchants grow through a comprehensive solution for accepting payments online but this is a new development. BigCommerce’s built-in integration with PayPal powered by Braintree now lets business owners easily accept credit and debit cards and offer PayPal.
“BigCommerce and PayPal have much in common at the core of our businesses – including providing businesses with the tools they need to succeed,” said Steve Fusco, vice president and general manager of global distribution at PayPal. “Through our expanded relationship with BigCommerce, we are delivering access to innovative, fully integrated products and services that help merchants increase sales and average order value.”
Obviously key partnerships like this make a lot of sense for ecommerce SMEs and access to credit is invaluable. It remains tricky for any small business to get a loan and traditional lenders seem particularly reluctant to lend to online firms, if our anecdotal evidence is anything to go by.
So this is a leap forward. Are you a BigCommerce user who will be taking advantage of these new offerings?
