Bigcommerce, the fastest-growing commerce platform for successful and emerging merchants, today announced that Magento, an eBay Enterprise company, has named Bigcommerce as the SaaS e-commerce migration provider for ProStores and Magento Go, which will be discontinued on February 1, 2015.
Bigcommerce and Magento are committed to the future success of ProStores and Magento Go retailers. Magento is offering migration options that best suit the needs of each client, including migration to its Community and Enterprise Editions, and special migration offers to Bigcommerce. For those clients best served outside of the Magento portfolio, Magento recommends ProStores and Go retailers move their stores to Bigcommerce.
Magento and Bigcommerce carefully coordinated the design of a migration program to ensure that ProStores and Go retailers can begin making preparations to migrate their stores well before the critical holiday season. The program includes integration across sales, migration services, and client support, as well as exclusive offers on comparably priced packages.
“Magento is dedicated to helping fast-growing retailers succeed. We chose Bigcommerce to help with the transition because of their shared commitment to client success and their proven track record of migrating large groups of merchants onto their platform,” said Mark Lavelle, senior vice president of product and strategy, eBay Enterprise. “Throughout this transition period, we will fully support both ProStores and Go, and clients will receive the same level of customer service they’ve come to expect.”
Bigcommerce has previously migrated more than 6,000 ProStores retailers onto its platform and has migrated an additional 6,000 stores from other platforms, giving it the industry’s deepest expertise in terms of in-house professional services and tools to help clients successfully relaunch their stores. In addition, Bigcommerce’s client-centric culture, tight integration with PayPal and ability for clients to sell on eBay make it a natural choice as a Magento transition provider.
“We are prepared and excited to work with ProStores and Magento Go merchants to help them continue their success using the Bigcommerce platform,” said Eddie Machalaani, CEO of Bigcommerce. “We understand that the to-do list for small business owners is never ending, and our teams are standing by to deliver the very best migration and onboarding experience so merchants can focus on growing their businesses.”
Bigcommerce offers a comprehensive e-commerce platform designed to help growing small and mid-sized businesses sell more. By expanding its product and engineering teams, Bigcommerce further demonstrates its commitment to creating the best platform for SMB merchants, including beautiful and optimized design templates, built-in SEO, mobile optimization and easy integration with PayPal. In addition, Bigcommerce offers many free educational tools, support and professional services to ensure clients have everything they need to grow their businesses. New clients coming from Go and ProStores will join more than 50,000 companies currently on the Bigcommerce e-commerce platform. Current clients include established and emerging brands such as Grace and Lace, Josie Maran, Stupid Cancer, Gibson Guitars, and Schwinn.

If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care. I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind. Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Boyd, Engi...

What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
