Integrating Bigcommerce into your current system
BigCommerce is a highly customisable platform that makes it easy to re-platform from any other eCommerce solution. Many eCommerce businesses are now migrating to BigCommerce when their current platforms just aren’t cutting it. However, there are frequent concerns for businesses that wish to replatform – most of these revolve around the process of data migration and the sustainability of the original site design – which is why the extendibility of the BigCommerce API is what makes the platform stand well above the rest.
Regardless of whether your site is homegrown, onsite or SaaS, the BigCommerce API offers the flexibility to be able to work with all kinds of apps, as well as including hundreds of one-click integrations with leading software providers, meaning that it’s easy to merge with the tools you already use. The BigCommerce open template also allows you to bring in any custom design elements to your new store so that it can be kept just the way you like it.
The Bigcommerce API not only offers complete flexibility, but it’s also able to withstand hundreds of calls per second, process updates 100x faster than Shopify Plus, and catalogue API can sync large catalogues of products in mere minutes, making data migration a much smoother and quicker process.
Unlike other platforms, BigCommerce has an in-house catalogue transfer team to help with data migration, making the process even easier. BigCommerce also offers help to build any custom integrations as you move to your new store. It’s important to remember that with BigCommerce, an expert is always available to deal with your query.
