BigCommerce Partners With BitPay to Offer Crypto Payment Option

Software as a service (SaaS) service provider BigCommerce (BIGC) has announced its strategic partnership with Bitcoin (BTC) payment platform BitPay and crypto payment gateway CoinPayments.

The partnership is targeted toward easily securing and delivering crypto payment services to BigCommerce merchants in specific territories. 

The open SaaS e-commerce platform released a tweet to inform the public of how BigCommerce plans to utilize this partnership for the benefit of its merchants. Per the tweet, merchants can now reach customers, expand internationally and also broaden their market share. Owing to the globalization of crypto adoption, online shopping has received a boost. 

Quite interesting, this strategic partnership with BitPay and CoinPayments places BIGC amongst other e-commerce platforms that have integrated crypto payment over the years like Shopify and Uquid.

Notably, Shopify took advantage of the platform to introduce its users to crypto payment options. America-based e-commerce company eBay has been exploring the possibility of accepting crypto as a means of payment for merchandise. 

BigCommerce Crypto Payment, a Click Away

Marc Ostryniec, chief sales officer at BigCommerce said “expanding our crypto ecosystem to include trusted best-of-breed partners is just one step towards driving innovation and growth for our merchants.

A new era of consumers is passionate about transacting using crypto, and we’re helping them do it. Merchants embracing this new technology can remain relevant and maintain a cutting edge as the world of payments continues to shift to digital currency.” 

Significantly, BigCommerce merchants may now use the BitPay platform to accept crypto payments.

All digital assets currently accepted are Bitcoin, Ethereum (ETH), Dogecoin (DOGE), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Shiba Inu (SHIB), Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC), Litecoin (LTC), XRP (XRP), and five stablecoins which are pegged to the dollar (BUSD, DAI, GUSD, USDC, and USDP). 

With the conclusion of this collaboration, every BIGC store is provided with a cryptocurrency payment solution that works best for it.

Now, with BigCommerce’s open and flexible approach to e-commerce, these merchants get to choose the most suitable payment solutions for their BIGC stores. Crypto enthusiastic customers will only need a click to complete their payment with digital assets after their purchases.
