BigCommerce to Offer Crypto Payments For Merchants With BitPay, CoinPayments

Open software-as-a-service (SaaS) e-commerce platform BitCommerce (BIGC) is teaming with BitPay and CoinPayments for cryptocurrency payments for BIGC merchant customers in select countries.

The company is joining a number of other e-commerce platforms that have been adding crypto payment capabilities over the last few years. Earlier in 2022, for example, Shopify (SHOP) expanded crypto payment options for its customers using Crypto.com.

BigCommerce merchants can accept cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin , ether, dogecoin, among many other choices, including five dollar-pegged stablecoins, according to a statement.

“Expanding our crypto ecosystem to include trusted best-of-breed partners is just one step towards driving innovation and growth for our merchants,” Marc Ostryniec, chief sales officer at BigCommerce, said in the statement.
