API integration Pretty Good and useful apps Decent Tech support
Only ONE from shipping addresses, if someone like me has multiple suppliers Big Commerce is the wrong choice. Can not have different shipping options for different categories. So you can not offer automatic free / fixed cost.
if you have only one location to ship from and you don't want to have different policies for shipping and if you need API integration, i guess you can go with Big Commerce.
Bigcommerce has tons of pros about there shopping cart including:
Price (starts at $24.95/mo.) Solid set of features Advanced marketing tools Great customer support Unlimited bandwidth No transaction fees
The only con that I see about the software is that they do not offer abandoned cart saver on all of their plans.
Most merchants will find Bigcommerce the ideal shopping cart solution for their online store. There is a great Bigcommerce review that can be found at: http://ecommercesoftwarereviews.net/bigcommerce-review
Major Cons: Can not have more than one from shipping address Can not have different shipping options for different products, like free shipping on certain products and fixed rate shipping on certain products. Wasted my time and just started looking for alternative platform.
GOOD CUSTOMER SUPPORT, EASY-TO-USE FREE, GOOD-LOOKING TEMPLATES, SHORT LEARNING CURVE FOR WHICH YOU DO NOT NEED EXTENSIVE SUPPORT (unlike VOLUSION and others). SSL SUPPLIED, ALTHOUGH YOU CAN PURCHASE YOUR OWN. $100.00 IN GOOGLE AD WORDS FOR EACH PACKAGE, SMALL OR LARGE. VERY REASONABLE FEES. NO CONTRACT! YOU CAN UPGRADE, DOWNGRADE OR CANCEL ANY TIME. I LIKE THAT. OH, YES: IT INTEGRATES WITH PRETTY MUCH ALL OF THE CREDIT CARD PROCESSING GATEWAYS OUT THERE, SO EVEN IF YOU DON'T HAVE THE BEST CREDIT YOU CAN STILL FIND A GOOD, RELIABLE PROVIDER. YOU CAN BUY A WEB DESIGN PACKAGE IF YOU WANT, BUT IF YOU ARE ON A BUDGET YOU CAN STILL BUILD YOURSELF A VERY NICE STORE.
SOMETIMES CAPACITY SLOWS, BUT ALL I HAVE TO DO IS RE-LOG IN AND IT GOES AWAY.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. OUR AUSSIE FRIENDS ARE GETTING IT RIGHT!
easy to use. YOu get can get an ecommerce site up and running fairly quickly.
Obvious capacity problems. Hopefully, it is temporary. Sometimes it takes retry after retry to log in to the administration console to view orders and make changes.
All was positive until a month ago...then, (according to their support desk), the started showing signs of capacity problems. over-capacity, that is. Can't seem to get an answer on when the issues will be resolved. very disappointing.
Ease of setup. A wide range of marketing features. Security.
There is no embedded newsletter software. the absence of B2B support.
Hi all, Your review is really impressive! I have a small experience of using BigCommerce, as I had migrated my store from Shopp not long ago, ( with a help of Cart2Cart migration service, because I was scared to move all the data manually) but I found your information very useful. Thus I can say, Bigcommerce is really userfriendly and less problematic in store management.
