Exclusive – E-commerce platform company BigCommerce has set up a $2 million fund for developers. With the launch of the fund, the Sydney, Australia-based company aims to sway third-party developers into submitting their integration and application ideas for Web, mobile or desktop apps that make use of the BigCommerce API.
Caveat: investments in successful entries are capped at $20,000 per project.
According to BigCommerce, applications will be assessed on “their ability to drive more traffic to stores running on BigCommerce as well as their ability to integrate BigCommerce with existing systems and applications already used by business owners”.
BigCommerce currently integrates with more than 100 applications, including Facebook, eBay, Mailchimp, Google Analytics, SurveyMonkey and more.
