E-commerce platform BigCommerce has signed a strategic partnership with Gorilla Group, which implements e-commerce solutions for category-leading brands such as PayPal.

Gorilla Group will join BigCommerce’s Partner programme to meet customer demand for a cloud-based, customisable e-commerce solution that delivers faster return on investment.

Under the terms of the agreement, Gorilla Group’s team of e-commerce strategists, designers, engineers and customer experience experts will collaborate with BigCommerce’s in-house technology and account services teams to support retailers on the BigCommerce Enterprise platform.

"Gorilla’s work represents the best the internet and e-commerce have to offer."

Gorilla Group CEO Brain Grady said:"We’ve witnessed firsthand the rapid growth and adoption of cloud-based commerce platforms by some of the most innovative brands around the world.

"We believe BigCommerce Enterprise is a very strong competitor among the SaaS e-commerce options available for the mid-market today, and the company has the vision and leadership to continue delivering the innovations expected from a market-leading platform."

BigCommerce CEO Brent Bellm said: "Gorilla’s work represents the best the internet and e-commerce have to offer.

"Cloud-based commerce platforms are the future of retail, and through this partnership our goal is to provide the world’s largest brands access to the tools and expertise they are requesting in order to grow their businesses without the security, hosting and maintenance challenges presented by legacy or custom-build platforms."
