BigCommerce partners with Digital River to give merchants the ability to unlock global sales

BigCommerce , an Open SaaS ecommerce platform for B2C and B2B brands, have announced a direct integration with Digital River to provide mid-market to enterprise BigCommerce merchants with an all-in-one global commerce solution that manages payments, tax, fraud and compliance to simplify cross-border selling and accelerate global expansion. 

“Delivering localized checkout experiences and reconciling international sales can be daunting and burdensome. To remove these complexities, we’ve teamed with BigCommerce to manage the financial and legal responsibilities of cross-border selling on behalf of BigCommerce merchants to help them simplify operations and accelerate global expansion at less cost,” said Adam Coyle, CEO at Digital River. “Together we’re doing the heavy lifting so merchants can focus on what’s most important—global growth.”

With a single integration, merchants can integrate Digital River’s Merchant of Record business model to mitigate risks and maximize conversions by delivering localized checkout experiences for both onshore and cross-border sales directly from within their BigCommerce store. As a result, merchants can easily deploy entry into new markets in as little as six weeks and simplify cross-border selling processes that can decrease operational costs by up to 30 per cent.

“Cross-border ecommerce continues to grow rapidly, and this partnership comes at a time when many merchants are prioritizing expansion to reach international customers,” said Brent Bellm, CEO at BigCommerce. “Our partnership with Digital River provides the global commerce solutions needed to go to market faster, at a lower cost and without the risk and complexities typically associated with cross-border commerce.
