For anyone looking to create and grow an online store, a new partnership between The Commonwealth Bank and BigCommerce provides support, innovation and experience.
Creating a thriving online business can be complex; balancing a range of different concerns that can range from website design to payment security. Trying to manage each of those elements, or outsourcing to different companies with unique specialisations, takes business owners away from their priority – managing the business itself.
Now businesses can look to a trusted, safe platform that offers all of those essential elements in one. Look no further than CommBank’s new digital offering, a collaboration with BigCommerce – one of the world’s largest SaaS (software-as-a-service) eCommerce platforms. It’s a comprehensive alternative, where the goal is to empower both businesses of all sizes to grow and expand.
Because of CommBank’s reputation as Australia’s oldest and largest bank, BigCommerce has tapped into something fundamental for any business owner – trust.
One of the core elements of partnering with CommBank is its Same Day Settlement, which CommBank offers for linked CommBank Business Transaction Accounts. This means that users can ensure they get reliable payments faster, any day of the year.
Along with trust, business owners, particularly those in the process of starting an online business, should prioritise efficiency.
For example, BigCommerce connects buyers and sellers through an array of innovative strategies, including increased payment functionality and an expanded range of purchase experiences.
The result of combining these two brands is the essential combination of trust and responsibility which results in improved efficiency and speed.
As well as these technical and practical innovations, the collaboration is, ultimately, focused on user experience. Trusting someone to help you create a thriving business is an important, powerful relationship. As a result, BigCommerce has also established a dedicated Commonwealth Bank phone line to ensure customers are being fully supported.
Equally as significant is the emphasis on relationship is the accessibility of the partnership. Rather than having to worry about relying on a complex web of different platforms or providers to handle the management of one website, BigCommerce and CommBank offer expertise in every area it may be needed.
That includes everything from SEO optimisation to monitoring customer data to designing the online store itself.
When looking specifically to grow an existing business, or to promote to new, engaged audiences, BigCommerce offers opportunities for businesses to integrate with platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Amazon and eBay. This extensive reach ensures that new customers are being shown your site through the most relevant channels.
As well as providing for business owners themselves, BigCommerce will also support customers of those businesses, with Aussie-based, 24-hours a day, seven-days-a-week customer support. This allows business owners to focus completely on their priority – their business.
The result is a platform completely optimised for efficiency and accessibility, the core priorities of both CommBank and BigCommerce. To ensure that accessibility exists for every scale of business, BigCommerce is offering a free 15-day trial for interested users, as well as an additional three months free once users commit to a plan.
Ultimately, the BigCommerce platform takes out the stress of opening or growing an online store, allowing users to instead put their energy into products, services and innovation. Offering insightful additional elements like free tailored business tips to CommBank business customers, BigCommerce provides business owners with the tools to flourish.
