Get The Akeneo PIM Connector For BigCommerce

29/06/2020 | by Nandita Mohan

A typical BigCommerce customer sells thousands of products online. Each product has an ever-growing amount of data, including rich content and digital assets. Many don’t use a PIM to organize, store, and manage product data systematically. Retailers are looking for easy to use, scalable product management solutions that allow them to seamlessly integrate with their existing eCommerce IT landscape.

Whether or not a PIM is in place, preparing and transferring product data into BigCommerce and syncing them to all shopping channels is often a manual and error-prone process. A robust integration helps transfer product data easily from PIM into BigCommerce and other shopping channels. StrikeTru’s Akeneo PIM Connector for BigCommerce (a single-click app) does just that.
