BigCommerce is a privately held technology company that develops e-commerce software for businesses. The company was founded in 2009 and has 456 employees with headquarters in Austin, Texas and additional offices in San Francisco, California and Sydney, Australia. 
The company reports that $16 billion in total sales have been processed by the BigCommerce platform.
BigCommerce was founded in 2009 by Australians Eddie Machaalani and Mitchell Harper following a chance meeting in an online chatroom in 2003. In August 2009, the two relaunched a hosted version of Interspire Shopping Cart called "BigCommerce" and opened its first U.S. office.
BigCommerce was 100% bootstrapped until July 31, 2011, when it closed $15 million in Series A funding from General Catalyst Partners. At the time, the company announced its client count had grown 680% year over year.
In January 2012, BigCommerce launched a $2 million integration fund for developers, which was used to fund 31 applications in the BigCommerce App Marketplace. The company subsequently received $20 million in Series B financing in September 2012, led by General Catalyst Partners and Floodgate Fund.
In July 2013, BigCommerce raised another $40 million in Series C financing from Revolution Growth, an investment firm led by former AOL Chief Executive Steve Case. In November 2014, the company announced $50 million in series D financing from investors SoftBank Capital, Telstra Ventures, and American Express, bringing the company's total funding to $125 million.
In April 2015, BigCommerce made its first acquisition, buying Zing, a Texas-based company that sold checkout software to retailers.
In May 2015, the company launched a new version of its platform, BigCommerce Enterprise, for high-volume retailers.
In June 2015, the company announced a new CEO. Brent Bellm, former HomeAway president and PayPal Europe CEO, succeeded BigCommerce co-founder Eddie Machaalani, who remains with the company as executive chairman of the board. 
In October 2017, BigCommerce began offering in-app shopping through Instagram to U.S.-based merchants using their platform. The offering was part of a gradual roll out of Instagram's in-app shopping feature that began in November 2016.
In April 2018, BigCommerce completed a $64 million round of funding led by Goldman Sachs.
