WooCommerce is easy to use — especially in the realm of ecommerce solutions — but it still requires some hand-holding during the setup process. Easy-to-build shopping solutions is increasingly a selling point for web solutions. WordPress.com competitors such as Squarespace have storefront modules and there are also hosted solutions from companies such as Shopify, Big Cartel and Bigcommerce.
01.05.15. Bigcommerce acquires inventory management service Zing. E-commerce platform Bigcommerce made its first acquisition, point-of-sale and inventory management software startup Zing. Bigcommerce said the purchase of Zing will allow it to give retailers better tools and APIs to manage inventory and sales across multiple channels, such as an online store and brick-and-mortar location. ore than 30 percent of Bigcommerce’s 85,000 clients currently operate at least one physical storefront in addition to their web stores, and the integration with Zing will allow them to handle O2O services like in-store pickup and shipping from store inventory more easily. Bigcommerce faces formidable competition, however, from other e-commerce platforms like Shopify and Magento, as well as marketplaces such as eBay and Amazon that target smaller vendors.
