BigCommerce have announced their acquisition of feed optimization platform Feedonomics to help merchants increase cross-channel sales.
As a full-service data feed management platform, Feedonomics helps mid-market and enterprise merchants succeed on hundreds of advertising channels and marketplaces by ingesting, unifying, enhancing, and syndicating product data, and then syncing the resulting order data back into existing systems to streamline operations.
In the US, ecommerce channel ad spending is expected to surpass $41 billion by the end of 2024, representing nearly 15% of all digital ad spend1. Together, BigCommerce and Feedonomics will provide merchants with the ability to seamlessly connect the dots between their back-end operations and their sales, marketing and advertising channels to drive higher ROAS, higher conversion and ultimately, higher GMV.
BigCommerce acquired the assets of Feedonomics for up to approximately $145 million, with approximately $80 million in cash paid at closing and up to $32.5 million to be paid at each of the first and second anniversaries of closing or upon the earlier achievement of certain milestones.
“This acquisition reflects our strong belief that Feedonomics offers the world’s best product feed optimization and syndication solution for merchants looking to optimize their advertising and selling via search engines, ad networks, social media sites and marketplaces. On average, these channels represent ecommerce merchants’ largest non-direct source of sales and one of the largest spending line items. With Feedonomics, BigCommerce merchants maximize their omnichannel sales and return on ad spend (ROAS) by connecting, transforming and enhancing their product data across hundreds of global channels. The combination catapults our ability to deliver the world’s most powerful ecommerce platform for omnichannel selling.”
