BigCommerce is furthering its presence into Europe, recently announcing that they are expanding into Germany, Mexico, and Spain too. This means merchants in these areas will now be able to incorporate locally preferred payment methods & gateways in their online stores. These local merchants can now use BigCommerce to build and scale their B2C and B2B businesses internationally.
