Bigcommerce offers e-commerce applications that cover everything such as email newsletter tools (auto responders), creating coupons/promotion campaigns, unlimited product variations, shipping and tax configurations, secure payment gateway integrations, handling returns, store statistics reporting, social sharing, product wish list, and product reviews, etc.

For example, in Asia, mobile wallets like WeChat Pay and Alipay are popular, while bank transfers are more common among Europeans.
