The best of WordPress and ecommerce combined

Content + Commerce

You've built a beautiful thing. Branding that differentiates, content that brings customers back, and a site that flows perfectly. With our WordPress ecommerce plugin, you don't have to compromise that beauty for fully customizable commerce.

Experience + Shopping

BigCommerce for WordPress lets you focus on tailoring your front-end experience without treating ecommerce like an afterthought. Our plugin blends ecommerce functionality with the carefully crafted WordPress experience you've already built — meeting your customers' expectations every step of the way.

Multiple Sites + One Control Panel

Even if you sell across multiple WordPress sites, you shouldn't have to manage them all in separate places. BigCommerce gives you a single control panel to manage your catalog, orders, and shipping, all from one place. Streamline your admin experience and spend less time managing ecommerce on WordPress.

The benefits of headless, with the ease of a plugin

Scale your business with WordPress on the front-end and allow BigCommerce to free up server resources from things like catalog management, processing payments, and managing fulfillment logistics on the back-end.

Let us handle PCI compliance

BigCommerce powers your checkout experience, taking on the burden of PCI compliance on our platform.

Avoid draining resources

Processing orders and running ecommerce operations shouldn't affect the uptime and speed of your site. Hosted on Google Cloud Platform, BigCommerce handles the heavy commerce lifting, bringing you the ability to scale without losing speed or uptime.

Simplify catalog management

No need to code or install additional apps to support commerce features as your business scales. Utilize the full power of the BigCommerce feature set in the open-source environment you already love.

“The BigCommerce commitment to open SaaS was a big driver in our decision to take on the project. The free integration lives within and is supported through the WordPress.org plugin directory. BigCommerce does the development the WordPress way and supports the WordPress way as well.”

AMP-Enabled and Gutenberg Ready

Built for speed

BigCommerce for WordPress is now AMP-enabled! Deliver the fastest ecommerce page load speeds possible with AMP for WordPress enabled on your site.

Built for the future

With the change of default editor to Gutenberg, the editing experience for WordPress has evolved. We believe this represents the future of WordPress, and as such, we've built the BigCommerce for WordPress plugin to be Gutenberg-compatible.

“I’m impressed BigCommerce supported Gutenberg immediately on release. They were ahead of the curve and if they continue to innovate ahead of others they could be an even bigger powerhouse.”
