BigCommerce for WordPress

A powerful commerce engine designed to scale ecommerce on WordPress


The BigCommerce for WordPress plugin combines the flexibility of WordPress with BigCommerce’s robust commerce engine to allow mid-market and enterprise merchants to scale like never before.

Scale your site with WordPress on the front-end and free up backend resources from things like catalog management, payments processing, order fulfillment and more. The BigCommerce plugin does the heavy commerce lifting, letting you scale your ecommerce without losing speed or uptime.


    • Reduction of complexity: By transferring the commerce elements of a site from the WordPress admin to BigCommerce, merchants can enjoy a more efficient experience that is not impeded by back-end bloat, and can quickly scale ecommerce functionality as the need arises.
