The newly-released payment option will be made available to all Bigcommerce merchants in the United States in the coming weeks, with international rollout expected later this year.
BigCommerce announced the integration with PayPal and Braintree at the Commerce:Rewired event currently being staged in the US, with the deal enabling shoppers to pay across more than 90,000 online stores in a single touch, without needing to enter user IDs or passwords after their first login.
The joint integration gives Bigcommerce merchants one of the most seamless ways to access the broad capabilities of PayPal and Braintree. It connects Bigcommerce’s ecommerce platform with a comprehensive suite of payment services and tools from PayPal, including support for digital wallet payments both online and on mobile, consolidated business management tools and automated fraud protections.
PayPal SVP of Global Merchant and NextGen Commerce, Bill Ready, said the partnership with Bigcommerce offered an end-to-end ecommerce solution that makes it easier than ever for their merchants to launch and grow their businesses.
“Together, we are giving merchants everything they need to open an online store in just minutes rather than weeks -- all bundled into a single integration.
“PayPal takes a partner-based approach to payments to help merchants and consumers connect more easily.”
Bigcommerce co-founder and CEO Machaalani said, “This collaboration reflects our shared vision to deliver seamless experiences that help merchants grow their businesses and sell more.”
“What PayPal has delivered through One Touch for the web is a future-proof payments solution that will enable our merchants to stay at the forefront of innovation while streamlining the day-to-day management of their businesses.”
PayPal says by using One Touch for web, Bigcommerce merchants will benefit from business-accelerating features, including built-in payment processing with support for all major credit and debit cards plus PayPal Express Checkout, mobile-ready payments, straightforward pricing and expert support, and automated support for new payment methods.
