  • BigCommerce is working with several B2C and B2B BigCommerce merchants offering the one-click integration of crypto payments.
  • By partnering with BitPay and CoinPayments, BigCommerce will enable crypto payments at 115,000 merchants across 190 countries.

Online platforms across the globe have been trying to integrate crypto payments to boost adoption. On Thursday, September 15, the leading Open SaaS e-commerce platform BigCommerce announced its strategic partnership with BitPay and CoinPayments.

The goal is to deliver secure crypto payment solutions to all BigCommerce merchants in select countries. To expand further in the crypto ecosystem, BigCommerce offers merchants the opportunity to offer payment options, broaden market share, expand its customer base and accelerate international growth. Speaking on the development, Marc Ostryniec, chief sales officer at BigCommerce said:

Expanding our crypto ecosystem to include trusted best-of-breed partners is just one step towards driving innovation and growth for our merchants. A new era of consumers are passionate about transacting using crypto, and we’re helping them do it. Merchants embracing this new technology can remain relevant and maintain a cutting edge as the world of payments continues to shift to digital currency.

Interestingly, BigCommerce provides merchants the flexibility to choose which crypto payment solutions work best in their stores. They also offer a single-click integration for merchants to start offering digital assets as another payment method. This also gives shoppers the flexibility to spend their cryptocurrencies on purchases.

Partnership with BitPay and coin payments

BitPay is one of the leading Bitcoin payment service providers in the world. Since its inception in 2011, BitPay has processed more than $5 billion in payments supporting over 100 crypto wallets. Using BitPay, merchants can choose to accept a variety of different cryptocurrencies.

This includes Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Dogecoin (DOGE), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Shiba Inu (SHIB), Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC), Litecoin (LTC), XRP (XRP). BitPay CEO Stephen Pair said:

We’ve teamed with BigCommerce to help minimize the lift for merchants to add crypto as a payment option alongside their existing payment methods in just a few clicks. Our strategic partnership and integration with BigCommerce moves crypto into the mainstream and supports a different future for payments to transform how merchants receive money around the world.

Similarly, another crypto payment gateway CoinPayments has a huge market presence. Over 115,000 merchants across 190 countries use CoinPayments to accept real-time crypto payments. The payment gateway supports over 100 cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin with a processing fee as low as 0.5%.
