Big things are happening for merchants looking to expand internationally by offering a more localised experience no matter where their customers are. 76% of online shoppers want the option to complete purchases in their preferred currency, and BigCommerce has rolled out extensive native multi-currency features to equip businesses for global selling.
From the BigCommerce site:
“BigCommerce, the leading open SaaS ecommerce platform for fast-growing and established brands, today introduced a comprehensive suite of multi-currency features to streamline merchants’ cross-border operations and provide international customers with localized shopping experiences tailored to their native language and currency.”
All multi-currency features will come at no additional cost to BC’s existing tiered pricing plans. This is great news as merchants will no longer need to rely on third-party currency converters that can often leave much to be desired in accuracy and presentation.
Prices will be displayed responsively and automatically, and transactions can be completed and settled in over 100 currencies worldwide. Leading payment solutions are all supported including:
Plans to integrate Barclaycard, BlueSnap and PayPal powered by Braintree are expected early this year.
“In today’s global ecosystem, merchants not only need to have the technical ability to sell in new markets, but also provide international shoppers with a familiar, localized experience … BigCommerce’s enterprise-level multi-currency tools allow our merchants to quickly scale into new markets without forcing them to work with just one payment provider.”
-Jimmy Duvall, Chief Product Officer, BigCommerce
Notable features include “no extra fees, accurate checkout rates, freedom of choice, and complete control”. These multi-currency solutions represent a tremendous milestone in BigCommerce’s continued effort to offer the best global experiences for ecommerce merchants and their customers.
