Online brands using BigCommerce now have a fast and easy way to access Digital River’s checkout solution to accelerate and simplify global expansion.  

As of February 18, Digital River’s Global Seller Services solution for payments, tax, fraud and compliance is now available directly as an ecommerce integration with BigCommerce. If you are a merchant using BigCommerce to manage your online store, here are five ways Digital River and BigCommerce integration can help your ecommerce business: 

Complexity, simplified

Staying on top of the ever-changing tax and compliance requirements is one of the most complex and challenging aspects of selling into new markets. With our merchant of record business model, we simplify back-office operations by taking all that complexity off your shoulders. Our legal experts have you covered, so you can focus on what you do best.   

Global expansion, accelerated

Expanding your ecommerce business internationally can be a complex and time-consuming effort, but with Digital River, you don’t have to do it alone. You gain access to 12 pre-established legal entities around the world, a deep global network of banks and payment partners, tax registrations, and a team of legal experts to shield your business from risk. As a result, it enables you to enter new markets in as little as six weeks.  

Profitability, supercharged

Delivering an exceptional shopper experience is equally important as offering localized payment methods, currencies and languages. With Digital River, your online checkout experience is localized with the language, currency and payment options your international customers expect. On average, Digital River clients see 8-15% higher authorization routes worldwide thanks to our local processing capabilities and intelligent transaction routing technology. We help you act local to optimize your global revenue. 

Risk profile, reduced

Compliance, security, and fraud are all top concerns for ecommerce managers and financial leaders alike. A survey taken in 2017 showed that businesses typically spend around 4% of revenue on compliance costs alone, with an expected rise to 10% by 2022.  

As online sales continue to rise worldwide, merchants need to be mindful of the increasingly sophisticated fraudsters and constantly changing regulations. With our merchant of record model, advanced fraud prevention technology, and 25+ years of ecommerce experience, Digital River shields your business from risk.  

Multiple technologies, consolidated

For anyone looking to simplify back-office operations and reduce operating costs, the Digital River integration is the perfect answer. It’s the only solution you need to simplify payments, taxes, fraud, regulatory compliance, and financial reconciliation on a global scale. Instead of experiencing the headaches and costs of working with multiple vendors, you get a single solution with the industry’s top payment providers pre-integrated. Brands who partner with Digital River experience an average of 20-30% reduction in operational costs.  

As you look to grow and optimize your direct channel around the world, ask yourself if you have the latest technology and processes in place to scale and meet the challenges of entering new markets. 

With the Digital River ecommerce integration for BigCommerce, you can remove the complexity of global expansion, simplify your back-office operations, and grow your revenue like never before.
