A SCALABLE, AFFORDABLE, AND ROBUST E-COMMERCE PLATFORM
BigCommerce provides a robust, scalable platform with the latest conversion tools, low on-going maintenance costs, and continual theme evolution.
Alexanders Digital Marketing was South Island’s first Certified BigCommerce partner and creates e-commerce websites that drive sales online. Not only can we help build your website but our web marketing specialists can then transform your e-commerce ambitions into reality.
Whether you are Procter & Gamble, the next Skullcandy or an ambitious NZ company, BigCommerce can power your e-commerce platform and seamlessly scale with you as your business grows.
BigCommerce has teams of engineers who ensure its native Apps and core platform are regularly maintained and fully integrated. This allows you to trial new products or promotions to increase conversion, rather than constantly fighting fires to maintain your website.
The low on-going cost of maintaining your platform makes the total cost of owning and running a large BigCommerce platform highly competitive in comparison to other e-commerce platforms.
BigCommerce continuously adds new native features to remove friction from all aspects of the e-commerce chain, from the way products are bundled and promoted, to one-stop shopping and delivery options. You can be sure that you are on top of the latest e-commerce trends.
We take care of your online presence and generating leads so you can take care of business

Yes. Big Commerce integrations are available for Xero and Quickbooks. A custom integration can be done for Microsoft Nav (we have three contractors who have done BigCommerce Microsoft Nav integrations). There are a number of others already available. Our team can also do custom integration to other platforms as required. Xero is BigCommerce’s recommended accounting integration.
There are some basic options to input set rates by region by weight. For full ability to control and customize shipping rates, Shipper HQ App is a popular integration. You define the carriers to use, the shipping methods that apply, and the unique rules of your own rate structure. They’ve created enough flexibility to easily generate and manipulate rates at the country, state, and even postcode level, with additional options for specific attributes like product or cart quantity, value, weight and dimensions. Go Sweet Spot is a popular BigCommerce integration that works with NZ Couriers, Parcel Post, Host Haste and Fedex.
There are more than 40 pre-payment gateways available. Stripe, Paypal and Braintree are the most common ones used in NZ. Visa Checkout, AmazonPay are included too. It’s just one click to set up to be able to accept major credit cards, PayPal and Apple Pay (providing you have a merchant account). That’s the thing we love about Big Commerce. It’s incredibly user friendly and once you’ve got the platform built, you can do most things without needing to engage programmers, because so many options are available built in, or as readily downloadable apps (monthly fees to use some apps).
Yes there is an in-app shopping feature for both.
There are more than 70 discount options available out of the box which don’t require you to pay extra for them. E.g. buy one get one free, buy one get something else free. Buy X units of product A, get % off per unit or apply discounts to customer groups or product categories. You can run flash sales, apply heaps of cart-level discounting rules or combine rules across product prices, cart-level discounts and customer groups. “Add $44 more and get 20% off your entire order”. “Join our loyalty program and enjoy 10% off every purchase.”
