Pros
I love the fact that small businesses like my mine are given the opportunity to have an online store free of cost.
I have one shop on Big Cartel, I made it super easy and super fast.
It has been really great so far. Thanks for your services, Big Cartel.
Cons
The software is very limited in multiple areas and other softwares that are equivalently priced and provide more features exist readily.
I find that there are no negative aspects to say about Big Cartel.

"Big Cartel Review: An In-Depth Look at the Simple E-commerce Platform for Designers"

Reviewed 15 days ago

"Big Cartel is a user-friendly e-commerce platform with simple customization options. However, it may not be suitable for complex or large-scale online stores and lack built-in features and tools."

Pros

"Big Cartel's simple and user-friendly interface makes it easy for me to create and manage a visually appealing online store.""The platform's customization options and integration with various design tools, such as Adobe Creative Suite, allow me to create a unique and professional-looking website."

Cons

"Big Cartel's design options and customization capabilities are more limited compared to some other e-commerce platforms, which may not be suitable for more complex or large-scale online stores.""The platform's built-in features and tools are less comprehensive, which may require additional third-party apps or integrations to add functionality to the website."

Best Software for a Start-up Small Business Wishing to Start Online Selling

Reviewed 8 months ago

Big Cartel has helped us build our online shop for our business. Starting from just 5 items on the free version to having more than 250 items listed on our website. Customers never had any issues when placing orders and the software is also very well priced. Really recommended!

Pros

Big Cartel has been the best software that I found in order to start selling products online from our business. The fact that it is free of charge for listing the first 5 products enabled us to assess the quality of the software without having to pay for any subscription. After seeing that it was helping our business to grow, we eventually subscribed and we are very satisfied with the result. Great Value for Money!

Cons

The only issue that I face sometimes is that when I access Big Cartel on my phone and navigate from the Products Page to the Orders Page or vice versa, the software logs me out and I would need to sign in again. This only happens once in a while but other than that I am really satisfied with such software.

Big Cartel - easy and cheap

Reviewed a month ago

I never had to use the help desk as it was so easy to work. Really clear and self explanatory.

Pros

I used Big Cartel for years and found it cheap and easy to use for clients and for management. It integrates seamlessly with PayPal. I use it less now as I have another system in place that suits better as I need a booking system but for selling stuff I think it's a great system. It's also easy to stop /. start / upgrade as and when you need it

Cons

For what I used it for I didn't have any dislikes, however I don't use it very much any more as it really only worked for selling stuff (events or products) whereas I need a calendar based booking system.

Current Big Cartel user Xhl Botanics on facebook

Reviewed a month ago

I would use again and I'm still using now. Way better than wix and simpler than sites like Etsy to set up but has the same quality in my opinion

Pros

This was the best software I ever used. I love it. It's simple. The in person sell is phenomenal

Cons

I can't find an issue off the top of my head. The good outweighs the bad.
