Bigcommerce makes large shipping, fraud effort


Online shopping platform Bigcommerce sets expectations high with its name. Hot on the heels of offering the “Buyable Pins” Pinterest shopping feature and Twitter “Buy Now” social commerce button to its merchants, Bigcommerce is launching partnerships to simplify shipping and fraud detection.

As part of the release, the company has unveiled new integrations with the ShipperHQ shipping rate management solution. Built in partnership with WebShopApps, the integration enables merchants to manage and configure shipping rates and rules for multiple carriers through a single interface.

Additionally, through ShipperHQ merchants can deliver accurate, real-time shipping quotes to online consumers for a wide range of product types and fulfillment scenarios.

And with the Sift Science machine learning-based fraud detection and prevention platform, Bigcommerce seeks to enable its retailers to avoid chargebacks, pre-emptively identify and reject fraudulent orders, reduce risk and fraud rates with real-time fraud protection, and monitor suspicious activity based on advanced fraud scoring.

“Bigcommerce has now seamlessly integrated with the Web’s leading solutions for advanced shipping rate management and fraud prevention,” said Brent Bellm, Bigcommerce CEO. “These advanced tools enable our fast-growing merchants to manage complexity, reduce cost and scale their operations efficiently.”

The ShipperHQ and Sift Science integrations are available to select merchants in limited beta with general availability planned for later this year.
