BOSTON (PRWEB) May 16, 2018
Unbound Commerce today announced the execution of a Certified Partner Agreement with http://www.bigcommerce.com, to allow more than 60,000 merchants on the BigCommerce platform to offer deeper engagement and a new higher-conversion mobile experience, though native apps.
Because Unbound Commerce is pre-integrated with the BigCommerce APIs, the native apps leverage and extend the BigCommerce ecommerce platform into an exciting new area of growth. This also means the apps can be built fast, while still incorporating a full discovery phase and custom design.
The native retail apps come with rich native features like segmented push notification, a flash sale engine, Apple Pay, Android Pay and super-fast, device-cached pageload times. Loyalty programs, 3rd party search, filtering and even beacons can all be added-on.
For BigCommerce merchants seeking deeper engagement with their best customers and more sales through mobile, native apps offer conversion rates many times higher than mobile websites, meaning ROI is typically very rapid.
BigCommerce, the leading ecommerce platform for fast-growing and mid-market brands, sees apps as an area of high growth potential and the fact that the two systems are pre-configured to work together means product data automatically flows into the app and orders flow back into the retailers current ecommerce checkout flow.
"BigCommerce is an ecommerce platform on the rise," said Wilson Kerr VP Sales and Business Development at Unbound Commerce. “Through API integration, we are delivering custom native apps for their growing list of merchants and this deal deepens the connection between our companies”.
“We look forward to working with the Unbound Commerce team,” said BigCommerce CEO Brent Bellm. Our desire is to provide merchants access to the industry’s best commerce technologies and tools, and Unbound exemplifies that goal.”
According to analysis conducted by market research firm Ipsos, online stores built on BigCommerce grow approximately twice as fast as the ecommerce industry average. By selecting a flexible, cost-effective SaaS model, retailers are able to focus on managing their business, not the technology behind it.
