Ecommerce platform Bigcommerce has a new partnership with eBay to enable BigCommerce merchants to seamlessly list their products and manage their inventory on the eBay marketplace.
"It's never been more important for business owners to manage and sell across multiple channels, and this partnership allows our customers to take advantage of a thriving marketplace that will bring them new customers and turn that discovery into revenue," said Brent Bellm, CEO of BigCommerce.
"Multiple sales channels can introduce complexity, but this integration will bring our customers a more efficient way to grow their businesses, and save them time previously spent managing multiple platforms."
BigCommerce users will be able to list, manage and sell on the eBay marketplace through the BigCommerce control panel. The integration will provide:
- Centralized inventory management
- Rapid bulk listing
- Quantity, price and description synchronization
Beta testing of the eBay integration will begin in the third quarter of 2016.

BigCommerce has also integrated a new version of PayPal's Express Checkout which allows payment to be made without visiting the PayPal website. PayPal's "in-context" checkout allows shoppers to stay on the webstore's checkout page eliminating a potential barrier to completing the payment process.
A new mobile payment tool from PayPal, also now integrated with BigCommerce, provides a simpler checkout experience for mobile buyers by storing payment data on the customer's mobile device. With PayPal One Touch, a shopper can fill in their credit card data on checkout pages in just a few clicks.
