imgres-14Bigcommerce announced Thursday that it has funded 31 applications through its $2 million integration fund for developers.
The Austin-based company that provides an e-commerce platform for businesses launched the fund early last year.
The apps are available in the Bigcommerce app directory.
“Our vision is to become the operating system of commerce, and the platform we’ve built for developers to leverage is the key piece to that vision,” Mitchell Harper, co-CEO at Bigcommerce, said in a news release. “We were blown away by the massive response from the developer community, and the applications we selected are truly best-of-breed integrations that meet significant needs for our clients. Using our extensive API, market-leading apps like HubSpot, MailChimp and Zendesk, as well as up-and-coming developers like Stitch Labs, are building on top of our platform and generating serious revenue.”
More than 500 developers applied to participate in the fund. Most of the apps chosen for funding focused on the marketing category.
“We know that our clients want more than just a pretty online store,” Eddie Machaalani, co-CEO at Bigcommerce, said in a news release. “They want traffic, orders and repeat customers. The range of apps built as a result of our integration fund not only extend on our 25 built-in marketing tools, but make it even easier for our clients to drive a stampede of targeted traffic to their Bigcommerce stores.”
