Face to face in the news:
2018 - BigCommerce raised $64 million. Shopify keeps calm
E-commerce service BigCommerce, that powers online stores for Sony, Toyota and 60,000 other merchants, has raised $64 million to accelerate its business. BigCommerce has developed a template for its customers to launch websites with manageable shipping and payments tracking. It also makes it easy to cross-sell on Amazon, eBay and Facebook. The company claims it is able to help e-tailers cut down on costs by as much as 80 percent. The company also recently built an integration with Instagram to make it easier for consumers to purchase directly via the app. BigCommerce also has partnerships with PayPal and Google and plans to double down on cross-platform opportunities. Thus BigCommerce is now more financially stable than Shopify
2017 - Shopify Mobile adds Discounts, Product Collections, Live View, and More to catch up with BigCommerce
Last year during Black Friday Cyber Monday, more Shopify merchants logged in on mobile than on desktop. That’s why this year the developers focused on making key features you need for your #BFCMWin available on your phone or tablet. You can now create, modify, and manage discounts from your phone and tablet. Another new feature - Product collections is one of the best ways to help your customers find what they’re looking for quickly. Now, you can set up and modify Product Collections on mobile in the Shopify app. And with Live View on mobile, you can keep track of your store’s performance in real-time, which is especially handy during high-traffic days like BFCM weekend. So we may assume that Shopify now provides more marketing tools than BigCommerce
