BigCommerce announced a strategic partnership with managed cloud and application hosting company Nexcess that will bring BigCommerce for WordPress, a full-featured eCommerce plugin that integrates WordPress with BigCommerce’s API-driven eCommerce platform, to WordPress sites hosted on the Nexcess Cloud.

The partnership allows Nexcess-hosted WordPress sites to offload the complex and resource-intensive aspects of eCommerce to the BigCommerce platform through APIs.

This gives retailers the ability to focus on fostering meaningful consumer engagements driven by content-led shopping experiences, without sacrificing website speed or security.

“We’ve witnessed just how quickly merchants can grow from a small business to an international brand, and with this new offering, even enterprise-level retailers can continue to deliver world-class shopping experiences using WordPress’ open source ecosystem rather than relying on a single, closed platform for both content and commerce at scale.”

Russell Klein, chief development officer at BigCommerce

Nexcess Integration

Nexcess clients that integrate their site with BigCommerce will have access to a WordPress-native interface for managing their store’s content and BigCommerce’s API-driven, cloud-based SaaS for commerce functionality.

This integration allows for automatic updates that provide merchants with new features, as well as independent and automatic scaling of their store’s front-end and back-end components.

“Decoupled eCommerce is an important innovation and we’re thrilled to be combining our WordPress hosting expertise with BigCommerce’s flexible and feature-rich commerce API”

Chris Wells, president and CEO of Nexcess
