BigCommerce becomes UK Government approved tech supplier

BigCommerce has been selected as an approved eCommerce technology supplier for the UK government-backed Help to Grow: Digital scheme. The scheme offers BigCommerce’s eCommerce platform at subsidised rates, allowing small and medium-sized UK businesses to build modern online storefronts that drive competition, innovative customer experiences and sales growth.

“Selling online can be transformative for businesses, and SaaS solutions are lowering the barrier to entry for eCommerce across the world. We’re honoured to partner with the UK Government as an approved eCommerce provider for this great scheme,” said Jim Herbert, senior vice president and general manager of EMEA at BigCommerce. “As eCommerce continues to become widely accessible, small and medium-sized businesses no longer need to take on designing, hosting, securing and updating proprietary sites themselves. BigCommerce allows retailers to build beautiful bespoke sites, taking care of the technical side so that entrepreneurs can focus on what matters most — growing their business.”

Help to Grow: Digital allows businesses that employ between one and 249 people to adopt the latest CRM, digital accounting and eCommerce software by covering 50per cent of the costs or up to £5000. The expanded requirements have increased the number of eligible businesses to 1.24 million UK businesses.

“Extending our Help to Grow: Digital scheme and welcoming new suppliers such as BigCommerce on board will enable thousands more SMEs to become more innovative, more competitive and more profitable,” said business Minister Lord Callanan. “Helping British businesses adopt new technology to sell online will enable them to reach new customers, drive sales and position themselves for the future. This will boost productivity and help create jobs and prosperity across the UK.”
