BigCommerce raises $30 million as it eyes mid-market expansion

The e-commerce SaaS provider, which was founded in Sydney in 2009, plans to use the latest raise to push further into the mid-market, which in retail speak refers to higher volume brands pulling in a range of $100 million to $150 million in online sales. Mid-market sized retailers have become a greater focus for BigCommerce since CEO Brent Bellm took over last year. Unlike the SMB retail market, where e-commerce requirements can be less complex, mid-market retailers demand omnichannel technology that goes beyond basic storefront design. "We do not position ourselves as the cheapest and easiest way to get online," Bellm said in an interview.

"We position as the best platform for fast growing and dedicated e-commerce. " BigCommerce raises $30 million and is likely to stay private. CEO Brent Bellm says BigCommerce’s latest funding round will help the e-commerce platform provider target midmarket e-retailers.
