Pros

BigCommerce is a recent addition to my portfolio and I must say that I am impressed thus far. Their customer support and willingness to be creative to solve an obstacle has impressed me.

JP

Jannis P.

BigCommerce is a dedicated ecommerce platform and is thus very suited for any store from simple to sophisticated.

DG

Bigcommerce is a great platform for small businesses or businesses in general that do not have a great budget to start developing their e-commerce.

Pros

Easy to install, the WYSIWYG editor is good for starters and professionals. Joomla is open Source, popular and supported.

Siraj W.

The ease of deployment is one of the best benefits. You can even auto-install it in most servers.

Yaco L.

Joomla is a stable solution that has been around for many years and continues to get better and developed by the strong Joomla community.

Cons

Every app I’ve installed has caused a problem with another app or the native functionality of the platform. Simple desires have been turned into nightmares and BigCommerce has offered no support.

SF

Shelby F.

There are some instances where the lack of control or access to the server has caused us to change some of our plans, but it's nothing I would call a dealbreaker.

Jennifer H.

Custom styles get very costly. Some features that should be standard are non existent.

MK

Mark K.

Cons

This tool was a threat to our profits because of those technical variants. There are so many conflicting help files and out of date tutorials, the tool has become a victim of it's own complexity.

JL

James L.

I dislike that the PayPal plugin for it fails too frequently. I dislike that there's a color change line in the body of the web page for no good reason (light blue to a slightly darker blue).

GT

Gail T.

Compatibility with certain software packages and hardware due to highly possible dishonest and cowardly development protocols from OTHER COMPANIES.

Got love Ecommerce which is a pleasure on Big Commerce

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

Bigcommerce was one of the first platforms I used after moving from Joomla back in 2011. It has been nothing but great experience with bigcommerce. I always find myself using them over and over again for my clients since they are easy to use for customers on the dashboard side and simple design. There would be no other platform I would use for e-commerce!

Cons

I don't like the themes which sometimes can be frustrating. Even if pay for the designs the designers take forever to respond which can be a deal breaker. I usually will fix the problem myself but for those who don't code it will be very frustrating!
