Bigcommerce News: Integrations With ShipperHQ, Pinterest and Square
Cloud-based ecommerce platform Bigcommerce has announced a number of new and enhanced technology integrations.
Bigcommerce has a new partnership with ShipperHQ to provide real-time shipping quotes, and reduce shopping cart abandonment due to uncertainty over shipping costs.
ShipperHQ is the number one shipping extension for Magento, and provides merchants with a sophisticated shipping rate calculator and rules engine, allowing merchants to offer their customers accurate, real-time shipping quotes.
ShipperHQ supports UPS, USPS, FedEx, GSO (Golden State Overnight) and LTL Freight Carriers.
The ShipperHQ app is currently only available to merchants on the Enterprise plan, and will be available to the full Bigcommerce merchant base in 2016.

Bigcommerce has a new partnership with Pinterest to enable Buyable Pins for Bigcommerce merchants.
Buyable Pins are a new Pinterest feature, and appear in user feeds if they are relevant to that user's interests just like regular Pins. Customers can buy on Pinterest by entering their shipping and payment information, and future purchases will only take two clicks. Pinterest orders are fed back to Bigcommerce for standard order processing.
Pinterest Buyable Pins created with Bigcommerce are also Rich Pins, displaying additional product information such as pricing and availability on the Pin.

Bigcommerce and Square announced an integration in February this year giving Bigcommerce merchants with an offline store the ability to process payments through a connected POS system. Now the integration has been enhanced with real-time inventory synchorization across physical and digital channels to rule out the possibility of overselling.
