By Nick Batten on 17 February, 2021

The team at Swindon-based web design agency O’Brien Media has been awarded ‘Agency Partner’ status with BigCommerce.

BigCommerce is a leading e-commerce platform provider, delivering solutions for small and enterprise businesses, along with B2B organisations, to help them meet their online retail and e-commerce goals. 

BigCommerce offers an intuitive, affordable Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform to help cater to the needs of retailers in need of e-commerce solutions – particularly those in the mid-market sector. 

Through a collection of open APIs, merchants can easily integrate BigCommerce with their existing ERP, CRM, order management system, email, shipping, and fulfilment systems. Small businesses can also use BigCommerce as a method of powering ecommerce solutions through WordPress while ensuring that all of the “heavy lifting” of order acceptance and customer management is handled through the BigCommerce platform.

As a member of the BigCommerce partner program, the O’Brien Media team will be able to access the latest e-commerce technology from BigCommerce.

O’Brien Media will also have access to training materials and other resources, along with easy communication with members of the BigCommerce team to provide any guidance and support required.

Chris Grant, Head of Design and Development at O’Brien Media, said,“BigCommerce is a marketing leader in the e-commerce space and we’re delighted to be able to secure what we believe will be a dynamic and valuable partnership with them. We’re excited to start working with e-commerce clients to help them take advantage of all BigCommerce has to offer.” 

O’Brien Media has vast experience in the small business digital marketing space and is well known in the Swindon area with partnerships with many leaders in the industry. By using this knowledge and expertise, the O’Brien Media team is seeking to help deliver the digital dreams of retailers both regionally in Swindon and Wiltshire, and nationally. 

Daniel Fertig, Global Director of Agency Partnerships at BigCommerce, said, “At BigCommerce, our core focus is providing our merchants access to all the tools and services they need to build, innovate on and grow – and that includes introducing them to industry-leading agencies like O’Brien Media.”

“I’m excited to welcome such a talented and well-respected agency into the BigCommerce partner program, and look forward to working with them to bring additional value to BigCommerce merchants seeking a top-notch website experience.” 

More than 60,000 BigCommerce merchants look to the platform’s robust agency partner ecosystem for support in creating differentiated shopping experiences to fuel their growth. Therefore, BigCommerce Agency Partners are carefully selected on the basis of offering best-in-class technologies, value and superior customer service.
