Also, the company revealed new partnerships with several leading ecommerce agencies and technology providers, including full-service commerce agency GPMD, artificial intelligence (AI) search tool Klevu, content management and boutique WordPress agency Pragmatic, and digital transformation expert SQLI.
dotmailer is a leading marketing automation platform and BigCommerce’s first European Elite Partner.
The partnership will provide European retailers with the ability to create personalised marketing campaigns for their customers.
Through dotmailer’s Commerce Flow, merchants can synchronise customer contact data and purchase history from BigCommerce to deliver more relevant marketing communication to customers.
“In today’s retail environment, consumers expect merchants to personalise the sales experience to their individual needs, and working with BigCommerce helps ensure that their merchants can use store data to create marketing materials that actually serve the needs of their customers.”
Milan Patel, CEO at dotmailer
BORN is an award-winning digital and content production agency and will partner with BigCommerce’s European team as it expands to better serve its local market.
“Our expertise lies in helping enterprise-level businesses develop integrated, forward-thinking eCommerce experiences that drive their business forward.
BigCommerce stands out as a true platform leader in the mid-market.
The combination of our offerings gives European merchants a toolkit to deploy industry-leading eCommerce sites that attract and convert customers at a fraction of the cost, which is why we consider it our SaaS platform of choice.”
Daren Fitzgerald, executive vice president of commercial at BORN
Other Partnership Expansions
Existing BigCommerce partners Americaneagle.com, Convert Digital, and RANDEM are making additional investments in their own regional offices to streamline partnership opportunities.
These new and expanded partnerships follow several recent announcements stemming from BigCommerce’s first European office opening earlier this summer.

BigCommerce also reminds interested European-based merchants to visit their booth (#E652) at the 2-Day eCommerce Expo starting tomorrow at the Olympia London expo centre.
