For companies that sell to B2C or D2C, BigCommerce provides a lot of native platform features such as product reviews, social media integration, abandoned cart recovery, shipping rate calculations, product filtering, multiple shipping addresses and many more. With these features, merchants can offer an engaging online shopping experience and make it easier for customers to find the products they are looking for.

BigCommerce also allows merchants to integrate with payment gateways, create discount codes and set up subscriptions or recurring payments. This makes it easy for customers to purchase products online and gives companies the flexibility to tailor their pricing and payment options to their specific customer base. So whether you are a B2B merchant, B2C, or both, BigCommerce has you covered.
