BigCommerce has added PayPal Credit as a payment option for merchants using its e-commerce platform.

Austin, Texas-based BigCommerce merchants may include a standalone PayPal Credit button to offer consumers flexible financing, which is particularly appealing for merchants selling higher-ticket items like furniture, BigCommerce said in a Friday press release.

The e-commerce company has offered PayPal as a checkout option since 2013 and earlier this year BigCommerce added Amazon Pay as another option for its merchants.

Separately, PayPal this week announced it’s selling $5.8 billion in credit receivables to Synchrony Financial, which has been a partner since 2004 for PayPal’s private-label credit cards.
