BigCommerce intends to stay at the forefront of B2B eCommerce with their latest acquisition of longtime partner, BundleB2B.
B2B is on the rise and that’s in no small part due to how the COVID pandemic affected retail. But now as the nation reverts back into its pre-pandemic ‘business-as-usual’ routines (in spite of rising COVID infections across the country and the world), B2B eCommerce continues to flourish. BigCommerce is going full-sail on B2B with their latest acquisition of longtime technology partner, BundleB2B. This follows a series of recent acquisitions from the Austin, TX-based eCommerce software provider, including last February’s purchase of B2B Ninja and the August 2021 takeover of Feedonomics.
“Consumer brands may have pioneered e-commerce, but B2B companies are quickly catching up. At BigCommerce, we provide a platform that is easier to use and faster than legacy B2B solutions and more flexible and powerful than other SaaS platforms. This acquisition further cements our commitment to being the best e-commerce option for B2B merchants.”

BundleB2B was built exclusively for BigCommerce’s B2B merchants. It combines existing enterprise-focused capabilities with advanced, easily configurable B2B functionality that automates manual processes, allows merchants to shorten sales cycles, including account management, order tools, quote management, and sales rep masquerade so that merchants’ sales representatives can assist their clients.
BigCommerce’s B2B Edition, a suite of advanced B2B functionality launched in June 2021 that has grown rapidly since its inception, has been developed in close coordination with BundleB2B. BigCommerce B2B Edition offers a single point of contact for onboarding, support, and contract services with a streamlined, all-inclusive package. Businesses with intricate multi-stage operations can use BigCommerce B2B Edition to easily deploy new channels, create B2C-quality experiences, and manage functions for B2C and B2B customers all on the same platform.
By acquiring BundleB2B, BigCommerce will integrate BundleB2B even more closely into its platform and will continue to invest in B2B Edition. All the benefits of B2B Edition will continue to be available to BigCommerce merchants, now even more closely aligned with BundleB2B for an even more integrated solution.
BigCommerce will continue to offer the B2B Edition. The exclusive integration of BundleB2B with BigCommerce Enterprise will provide merchants with seamless transactions and convenient self-service account management so they can better facilitate online operations and provide customers with convenient self-service capabilities.
BigCommerce B2B Edition features include:
- Price lists
- Customer groups
- Corporate account management
- Shared shopping lists
- Invoice management
- Payment method visibility management
