BigCommerce has been building strategic partnerships recently. It aims to give its users more options and improve their selling experience. Not long ago, the eCommerce hosting provider entered an alliance with Trustpilot.
More recently, BigCommerce has joined forces with FedEx and Magnolia CMS. The world is still battling the COVID-19 pandemic. So most people are relying on home deliveries to order items they’d usually buy at a physical location. Hence, Sellers need better shipping options to serve their buyers.
