The app will provide self-serve access to Nextech’s proprietary AI-powered solution for 3D/AR Ecommerce to all businesses who use BigCommerce to power their ecommerce business. Implementing 3D/AR has already proven many benefits to ecommerce businesses, including increased engagement, increased conversions, and reduced returns. ARitize 3D makes the adoption of 3D/AR simple, convenient and affordable for BigCommerce merchants - with the ability to subscribe and manage the app themselves from their BigCommerce merchant account.
Nextech’s pricing plans are much more affordable than other 3D modeling service providers, purchasing expensive equipment or hiring artists for individual models. The Company believes that this is the AR industry's first true self-service AR SaaS platform which offers scalability, affordability, ease of use, and high quality 3D/AR models. With Nextech’s artificial intelligence-powered technology now integrated with BigCommerce, any merchant can create 3D/AR models in a few simple steps.

Nextech AR CEO commented, “This launch of the BigCommerce app is another milestone for Nextech and showcases that we are continuing to hit our targets, providing us with another distribution channel and placing our ground-breaking AI powered 3D modeling technology in front of more commerce merchants. After integrating with Shopify in January, our development team has been hard at work to continue our third party ecommerce platform integration. This is just the beginning, as it is only the second of several apps that we are planning to roll out throughout 2022 as we are aggressively working towards the goal of becoming the leading 3D model factory and AR supplier to ecommerce sites around the globe. ARitize 3D provides a frictionless solution for ecommerce site owners to easily sign up and create 3D models at scale, and these apps will allow Nextech to meet the increasing global demand for 3D and AR solutions.”
