Cloud-Based Headless Ecommerce Engine Comes to WordPress Community

May 21, 2019

BigCommerce, a SaaS e-commerce platform, announced a strategic partnership with managed cloud and application hosting company Nexcess that will bring BigCommerce for WordPress, a full-featured e-commerce plugin that integrates WordPress with BigCommerce’s API-driven e-commerce 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 e-commerce 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.

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, allowing 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.
