No primary category set

BigCommerce have announced it has extended its European presence from the U.K., into the Netherlands, France and Italy. Merchants will have access to a flexible, enterprise-grade ecommerce platform built to sell on a local and global scale. This latest growth phase comes almost a year since the company’s IPO in August 2020 and three years since the company first put down roots in EMEA with an office in London in 2018.

Over the past year, the pandemic has accelerated the shift to ecommerce and led to significant growth of ecommerce markets within the Eurozone. In the UK as well as France, Italy and the Netherlands, the volume of ecommerce sales is growing year on year. It is estimated Eurozone ecommerce sales are expected to total $465,372m by the end of this year alone.

BigCommerce’s expansion will create new roles in France, Italy and the Netherlands to work directly with merchants in the region. As part of this fully localised experience, merchants will be able to use the BigCommerce platform to manage their store in their local language, as well as create a fully localized website experience for their shoppers, with their local payment methods and currencies.

“BigCommerce powers over 60,000 merchants worldwide and this latest phase of our EMEA expansion underpins our ongoing commitment to the region and retailers within it. Our presence in France, Italy and the Netherlands will enable us to provide tailored programmes and services specific to our customers and partners across Europe.

“Since our EMEA launch three years ago, we’ve helped retailers of all sizes enhance their digital presence and boost sales through our platform. We’ve also established a strong local partner network both across Europe and within its respective markets to ensure merchants have the freedom to work with technology and agency partners that best fit their specific business needs.”
– Jim Herbert, VP and GM EMEA, BigCommerce
