BigCommerce (Nasdaq: BIGC), a leading Open SaaS ecommerce platform for fast-growing and established brands, today announced fintech company Sezzle Inc. as a new preferred buy now, pay later (BNPL) partner. Small and mid-market BigCommerce merchants will now have the ability to offer interest-free payment plans that support smart, risk-free shopping for consumers, including high-risk borrowers and younger shoppers looking to build credit and buy with a purpose.
Sezzle is also dedicated to financially empowering younger consumers through credit building and financial education, and was recently certified as a B Corp for its ethical business model.
“With 60% of U.S. shoppers having used BNPL financing for an online purchase, merchants are increasingly adopting these solutions for their ecommerce stores in response to customer demand, especially younger consumers who find the installment-based model attractive.” said Mark Rosales, vice president of Payments at BigCommerce. “There are a number of BNPL providers in the market right now, but Sezzle’s commitment to giving consumers a responsible way to slowly build credit without taking on large amounts of debt was a key differentiator in deciding to make them a preferred BNPL partner.”Businesswire
