First, a personal note:

Like you, we’re navigating these unprecedented times to the best of our ability. We’re staying home and everything is on lockdown right now, while we continue to monitor the ongoing health crisis and do our part to help out in any way we can.

Thankfully, our team has always been remote, so we’re continuing to create courses and answer your questions in our WordPress help forum. We’re continually looking for ways to help you make the most of this quarantine time.

So, today we’re happy to release a brand new course that will help you sell products from your WordPress site. If there is anything else we can do to help you during this time, please feel free to reach out anytime.

New Course! BigCommerce for WordPress

Do you want to start selling products on your WordPress website without bogging down your page load times, or buying dozens of expensive add-ons? Looking for an alternative to WooCommerce? In our newest course, we’ll show you how to use BigCommerce for WordPress so you can start selling products on your WordPress site in about 30 minutes.


BigCommerce Product Backend

WordPress is the most popular content management system on the planet, and it provides a fantastic way to manage your website. But WordPress wasn’t designed for ecommerce. And with dozens of ecommerce plugins available for WordPress, where do you begin? It’s easy to become overwhelmed with decisions about how to manage your inventory, accept payments, process orders, handle shipping, security, hosting, performance… and the list goes on.

That’s where BigCommerce for WordPress comes in.

BigCommerce is a specialized ecommerce platform. BigCommerce handles all the heavy lifting so you can focus on growing your business. And, with BigCommerce for WordPress, you can bring all this power directly to your WordPress site.


Once the plugin is installed, BigCommerce takes care of all the important aspects of ecommerce for your WordPress site. Right out of the box, you get a robust set of tools to help you sell products from your site, without having to worry about complicated PCI compliance, processing credit cards, or slowing down your website!

With BigCommerce for WordPress, you can focus on creating content and a stellar customer experience, while BigCommerce works in the background, making sure your store always runs at its best.

Blazing fast ecommerce that doesn’t slow down your site.

Displaying products to your site visitors and processing concurrent orders shouldn’t slow down your site. But this is the #1 problem for ecommerce site owners, and it can be costly. BigCommerce solves this problem by offloading the most intensive processes to their dedicated servers, freeing your own web server’s resources so you can handle high traffic, without slowing down your WordPress site.

With BigCommerce for WordPress, you get a powerful, PCI-compliant, ecommerce platform that loads incredibly fast, whether you’re selling one product — or thousands. BigCommerce handles the checkout process, so you don’t have to worry about security or PCI compliance.

We partnered with BigCommerce to create this simple, 13-part introduction to BigCommerce for WordPress.

In this easy, 30-minute course, you’ll learn:

  • Why BigCommerce is the best ‘headless’ ecommerce solution for WordPress.
  • How to download, install, and configure BigCommerce for WordPress.
