Shaking hands with BigCommerce – Another seamless integration done successfully!

We are very excited to inform all our users (and potential users) that we have added another platform to our growing network of platforms. BigCommerce is our latest addition.

BigCommerce is one of the largest “hosted” platforms. It offers its users an easily customisable storefront, that loads easily while still maintaining the site security. Its a one stop solution for all online entrepreneurs, and fully integrated with all possible tools a user may require while running a store seamlessly. Very similar to Outfy’s way of functioning – as Outfy is also a one stop shop for all Outfy users’ social media marketing requirements! So, an integration between the two will offer a more robust solution to users of both.

What does this integration mean for all you BigCommerce users?

BigCommerce users can now promote your products from your BigCommerce store on the following 12 networks through Outfy:

  • Facebook Page
  • Twitter
  • Instagram
  • Pinterest
  • Wanelo
  • Weheartit
  • Fancy
  • The Hunt
  • Keep
  • Tumblr
  • Kit
  • Juxtapost

      • the networks you want to promote your products on
      • the frequency per network
      • the product group you want to promote – latest or random or maybe even an equal mix of both
      • Even the categories / collections you want to promote or exclude (like off season products)
    • Autopilot ensures that all your products get a fair chance at being promoted:
      • Your new additions sell like hot cakes
      • Your old inventory that you had forgotten about also gets an equal probability of being promoted and finally moves!

  • Product discovery channels – Outfy is the only tool that supports promotion on the product discovery channels, over and above the regular social media networks. You can promote your products on these off-beat networks by just registering as a normal user (merchant account not required). Traffic from these networks is routed back to your online stores, and actual sale happens there only.

These new buyers get added to your network, and eventually your sales as well as brand name grows.

  • Perfect feedback loop – Outfy tool treats its users as the final voice. That’s why we are very open to feedback and feature requests. Infact, we added BigCommerce to our network list after this came as a request from one of our existing users from another network itself. We work with our users as a partner in their growth, not just a service provider.
  • Personalised customer support – Outfy has been designed as a DIY (Do-it-Yourself) tool. But still if any of our users needs help / suggestions / directions / step by step instructions – we are there to help all the way. We offer round the clock support through chat and mails, for all our users, to get them comfortable with Outfy.
