BigCommerce powers online shopping for more than 60,000 small and mid-sized businesses and also will start enabling immediate merchant onboarding with WePay—a Chase company.
Together, both Chase offerings will make it easier for both retailers and their customers to transact digitally.
Retailers work with BigCommerce to customize their site, manage shipping and payments, and list products on Amazon, eBay, and Facebook.
Adding Chase Pay as a checkout option will allow retailers to engage with customers through their own loyalty programs while making their mobile and online shops more accessible to Chase customers. With Chase Pay, eligible customers can redeem Chase Ultimate Rewards, giving them more redemption options and greater spending power at checkout.
In addition, WePay will be offered as an integrated payments option to BigCommerce merchants, allowing them to accept payments instantly.
“We are working together to make great digital storefronts even stronger by streamlining the checkout and payments experience and making payment options more accessible to our customers,” said Rob Cameron, president of partnerships for Merchant Services at Chase.
“Checkout optimization represents one of the single biggest challenges that online retailers continue to face. One way that BigCommerce is driving superior conversion rates is by giving merchants and their consumers access to the industry’s most trusted payments technologies,” said Russell Klein, chief development officer at BigCommerce. “Not only does WePay simplify and speed up the checkout process on merchant sites, but as part of the Chase family, it gives consumers more confidence in their online purchase decisions.”
The companies are planning to make Chase Pay and WePay available to BigCommerce retailers by summer.
