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

Magento has a very popular community edition, which is free and open source. It's relatively easy to set up, and have a great feature set.
Magento is a great and responsive platform which is essential these days when everyone uses mobile devices and recommend it for e-commerce platforms.
There are many free and paid extensions to extend the features. It is very easy to write code, so you don't need to hire a programmer to use this CMS for a great customization job.

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

Cons

But all this requires a lot of resources. We needed a terribly expensive hosting in order for the online website to withstand the load.
Which resulted in an almost abandoned and forgotten open souce version.
I dislike that after signing up for Magento I was bombarded by calls from telemarketers working for them that tried to sell me upgrades and other integrations to the platform.

Big Commerce is our go to platform when developing e-commerce websites for clients.

Reviewed 2 years ago

Excellent. There are a few things that make it harder to sell to clients, but overall, it is an amazing platform and they are constantly trying to make it better.

Pros

Ease of use, customization and reliability. We develop custom Big Commerce e-commerce websites on a regular basis and this is our preferred platform.

Cons

Monthly price is based on trailing 12 months of sales. I understand why it is this way, but for clients with higher priced products, they quickly exceed the maximums. Big Commerce competitors do not have the same business / pricing model which makes it a little harder to sell to potential clients because of this pricing strategy.

I run an e-commerce shoe store and absolutely love BigCommerce. Their team is responsive, the apps are numerous, and Big Commerce is constantly pushing updates. My only complaint is that our product catalog is extensive and features many complex products. Big Commerce support of complex products is not the best.

Get's the Job Done, But Lacks in Many Areas

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

Big commerce has the appeal of most e-commerce platforms, mainly being that you can setup an online store with relative ease and security. This obviously saves a lot of time and money rather than building a store from scratch with a team of developers.

Cons

I must say I was not very impressed with big commerce every time I've used them. Having used Shopify for several years, I got very spoiled with their ease of use and powerful coding languages (mainly Liquid). Big commerce was not very developer friendly, I found it's interface and documentation to be rather lacking and a bit difficult to navigate through. Sometimes making an "easy" change felt like it took far too long on this platform.

Great E-Commerce Solution!

Reviewed 3 years ago

It's a pleasant and delightful experience. It is a robust e-commerce solution for B2B, B2C and Wholesalers.

Pros

At our agency, we were used to working with WooCommerce, Shopify and we had never really worked with BigCommerce. Until we decided that it was time to step things up for one of our clients. We had a delightful surprise to see that BigCommerce is one of the most complete platforms out there, that is extremely user friendly whilst being robust and complete. You have every type of solution you can imagine within your platform. From Wholesale B2B to a simple one page shop, you can build it all. BigCommerce offers amazing templates you can choose from, and also the Cornerstone which is a blank canvas. As an agency, we've gone through the partnership process and we are officially a part of BigCommerce marketplace!

Cons

What I don't like is how the development can be a bit different than what we're accustomed to, and not as user friendly as Wordpress. For instance, on Wordpress our team can set up the background in a friendly way for our customers to use and manipulate sections without the need of a developer 24hs helping them. Now as far as BigCommerce goes, the way some pages are set up require you to have an intermediate understanding of HTML if you want to manipulate some text and imagery. I find this quite difficult since our clients are the ones changing content on the website once we hand it off to them.

Good for getting up and running.

Reviewed 7 years ago
Pros

Its a good platform if you are just starting out or just want to get up and running quickly. Most other e-commerce platforms you have to buy, install and manage plugins or add-ons to get your store fully functional. BigCommerce includes majority of your important e-commerce needs already.

Cons

If you have complex products or product options there will be somewhat limited flexibility, customization and support without a developer on your team. At the current time, the app marketplace is rather lacking when it comes to adding additional functionality or integrations to your store, majority of the apps are marketing and inventory based and come with additional monthly fees. Definitely use the trial period to make sure it will suit all your needs before committing.

Magento is extremely powerful. For many self-hosted eCommerce applications, it's literally the only option you have.

Cons

If your eCommerce site doesn't need to be self-hosted, and doesn't have complex multi-store requirements, I would strongly recommend considering a cloud solution like Shopify or BigCommerce. In the long term, Magento is a source of constant pain and a constant need for developer attention.

Adobe Commerce

Only committed Adobe users should buy this software

Reviewed 4 years ago

We were on Magento 1 and when it came time to upgrade, we realized that everything would have to be rewritten for M2. So, we decided to abandon Magento entirely and will save at least $8,000 month and probably $100k per year in dev fees. We'll be going with BigCommerce from now on.

Pros

Magento has tons of features A huge amount of apps to purchase Many qualified developers to contract with Standard features like page builders now come with it Rock-solid security

Cons

Magento is ridiculously expensive. Not just for the licensing of the Enterprise version, but for the apps, the developers and the entire ecosystem. You aren't getting the true value of open source any more. The only way Magento makes sense is if you are a part of the Adobe ecosystem and need to rely on the integrations that Adobe will (eventually--not fully done) provide.
