AUSTIN, Texas and SYDNEY, Australia — April 24, 2024 — BigCommerce (Nasdaq: BIGC), a leading Open SaaS ecommerce platform for fast-growing and established B2C and B2B brands, today announced it has been named a Leader in the new IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Enterprise B2C Digital Commerce Applications 2024 Vendor Assessment.

The report evaluated 22 digital commerce vendors based on both their capabilities and strategy for B2C use cases. 

Heather Hershey, research director, Worldwide Digital Commerce at IDC states in the report’s evaluation1: “Consider BigCommerce if you are a fast-growing, experience-driven brand looking for a multi-tenant SaaS B2C digital commerce platform. Buyers should consider BigCommerce when business agility, tech agility, and experiences are core differentiation strategies.”

The IDC MarketScape report cites BigCommerce’s strengths as a Leader in B2C Enterprise Digital Commerce as:

  • Developer- and business user-friendly: The company designed everything about BigCommerce — integrations, interfaces, and the low-code/no-code front end — to be accessible for business users without the need for developer support. BigCommerce is also versionless with an API-first design, providing ample flexibility for seasoned developers to create headless and composable commerce experiences.

  • Flexible microservices-based, API-first, cloud-native, headless (MACH) architecture under the hood: While it is user-friendly, BigCommerce is extremely extensible by virtue of its MACH architecture capabilities. BigCommerce provides APIs and developer-friendly features to give buyers the ability to create headless and composable ecosystems for commerce. BigCommerce can also natively support multisite, multigeo, B2B2C, omni-channel, and multi-language commerce deployments.

  • Open SaaS ecosystem: BigCommerce offers open-sourced checkout, 95%+ API coverage of its platform, and a large app marketplace with easy, business-friendly integrations that don't generally require an expert to install. (Note: BigCommerce sells in every buyer market segment in digital commerce, so some of these apps may be better suited to SMBs.)

“Being recognised twice as a Leader in B2C Enterprise Digital Commerce Applications and B2B Digital Commerce Applications for Midmarket Growth IDC MarketScape reports, in our opinion, acknowledges the value and flexibility customers are experiencing with BigCommerce’s open, composable platform," said Meghan Stabler, senior vice president of marketing at BigCommerce. “B2C and B2B brands and retailers are gaining a competitive advantage with BigCommerce’s simplified approach to enterprise ecommerce that helps them deliver remarkable customer experiences, sell more at every stage of growth and scale their businesses.”
