“By working with partners like BigCommerce, we are able to give even more merchants a way to easily get discovered and connect directly with shoppers.”
“Ads and Listings on Google is a logical next step for our omnichannel merchants to further reach and attract new customers who rely on Google’s powerful shopping capabilities to drive traffic and growth,” said Sharon Gee, vice president and general manager of omnichannel at BigCommerce. “As more retailers enter the ecommerce landscape, the more crowded it will be for them to reach the right shoppers across the channels they’re searching in. Ads and Listings on Google gives merchants a true advantage to get discovered without ever having to leave their BigCommerce store.”
The launch of Ads and Listings on Google further deepens BigCommerce’s relationship with Google by joining the roster of native applications that help merchants navigate, centralize, track and analyze their store data. With Google BigQuery, Google Data Studio and Google Analytics, via BigCommerce’s Big Open Data Solutions, merchants can attract new customers, create personalized shopping experiences, optimize business operations and drive revenue growth.

On average, Google sees an increase in clicks of over 50% and an increase in impressions of over 100% on the Shopping tab when free listings and ads are combined – with small to medium sized merchants seeing the largest share of increases in both instances1.
“Merchants of all sizes are finding they need to directly connect and engage with a new generation of online consumers who expect brands to be authentic and deliver real value no matter where they are selling their product. Commerce is no longer a transactional experience, it’s relationship-based and we’re working to directly connect shoppers to merchants,” said Adrian Maharaj, Google director of channel partnerships. “By working with partners like BigCommerce, we are able to give even more merchants a way to easily get discovered and connect directly with shoppers.”
