FedEx and BigCommerce support retail transition to online

Supporting high street shops’ moves to online presences to survive the pandemic economic conditions, FedEx and BigCommerce are working together to help these companies transition to the online world.

BigCommerce is an open SaaS e-commerce platform, and is offering its services free to new customers for four months. In addition FedEx is offering discounted shipping rates as part of the deal.

“As we all face the unprecedented challenges of COVID-19, it’s even more important for small and medium businesses to be able to continue providing much-needed goods and services to their communities,” said Randy Scarborough, vice president of Customer Engagement Marketing at FedEx. “We’re proud to team up with BigCommerce to make it easier for more businesses to move online quickly so they can stay connected to commerce and deliver for their customers.”

Beyond the new customer offer, FedEx is offering all BigCommerce SME clients discounted rates. This is the FedEx Advantage Program. “FedEx understands that making shipping seamless for small businesses is an essential ingredient to success and to growth,” added Scarborough. “This collaboration gives BigCommerce customers simple and affordable access to FedEx top-tier shipping services within the same familiar platform they are already using.”
