Press for Bigcommerce
BigCommerce, the world’s fastest growing e-commerce platform, has announced the launch of its new Pinterest integration. The company, which presently hosts roughly 25,000 clients, was established in 2009 in Sydney, and currently has offices in Austin, TX. Merchants who use the service will be able to drive sales by using Pinterest as a primary tool for generating sales traffic.
BigCommerce is an e-commerce platform that allows users to setup a professional online store without coding or design experience.
I interviewed Eddie Machaalani, BigCommerce co-founder to find out more. This interview is the ninety second in a series of DW interviews. Big thank you to Eddie!
These are the guys big retailers like Harvey Norman, David Jones and Myer love to hate. Mitchell Harper and Eddie Machaalani provide the tools that allow enterprising individuals to run an online store for peanuts.
But the rewards for the company they co-founded, BigCommerce, and their clients are anything but peanuts.
The Sydney-based start-up provides an e-commerce platform for about 25,000 online stores and is on track to turn over more than $US20 million ($19.3 million) this year, after attracting $US15 million in venture capital from an investor last year.
BigCommerce-powered online stores around the world have now processed over $600 million in sales, with $150 million in the first two months of 2012.
The BigCommerce platform has processed 5.7 million orders and a staggering 28.8 million items. 1.3 million orders and 6.2 million items have already been sold in 2012 alone.
