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

I love Wix's ease of use and user friendly interface. I have been using it for over two years for our agencies website and we have loved it.

Wix helps the user to make an outstanding website and with an affordable price. It is very easy to use it.

NR

Nadeemur R.

It is an excellent way to have a website with zero cost. Easy handling and with a variety of designs is a great tool for a company that is starting and wants to show their work on the internet.

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

Sometimes the apps cost money or you have limited amount of the app you can use before it costs money. This is frustrating when you start using it and then realize you are stuck.

WD

Whitney D.

Their policies are ridiculous and customer service knowledge and etiquette are terrible. I have to share the latest bizarre policy I've run into.

LH

Lora H.

The only problem that I have faced is that trying get to different pages of your website while in editing mode is confusing.

Excellent Store Management Plumbing and Partner Alliances

Reviewed 2 years ago

Big Commerce has built a fabulous eCommerce engine that integrates with many important providers of inventory, POS, shipping, tax calculation, etc. They offer all this at a reasonable fee. Their Achilles Heel is their website builder and they know it. The current WordPress headless play is probably a wise interim step... but LAMP is getting long in the tooth... Plan B.2?

Pros

Big Commerce have done an excellent job of identifying and integrating the components necessary for a very robust large scale online store. It is wrapped in a very inflexible templated front end that requires programming to break out of. They clearly recognized this shortcoming and have deftly pivoted to a headless model that tosses the client-side rendering to... WordPress.

Cons

The theming/template/programming model of native BigCommerce is an investment. It is a specialty that does not feel like a career investment, rather it is a commitment to be a Big Commerce partner/developer. I suppose that with a pool of large clients this might seem monetarily attractive, at the end of the pool with smaller clients and smaller jobs, customization work required will often exceed...

Bigcommerce good for e-commerce store

Reviewed 2 years ago

we have been using bigcommerce for about 2 years in our ecommerce website, we used before woocomerce which requires more programming knowledge and it is more time consuming, since we moved to bigcommerce, we noticed a huge difference in the speed of the website, with bigcommerce and basic knowledge of HTML you can accomplish a lot of goals and modifications of the templates, but if you don't have...

Pros

-Very reliable -Speed Website -Friendly user -able to sync to 3rd parties app -good pricing -simply to use

Cons

-lack of templates options -lack of options that other competitors have -freedom to personalized the website, most of the stuff is better to use the template -limited on options to add videos or other links options type of fonts styles animations like other competitors

Wix makes it easy to get a nice site up and going that a client can edit themselves

Reviewed 3 years ago

Very good experience working with wix. Depending on the client and needs I might lean more towards joomla or another saas provider like BigCommerce or Shopify for e-commerce

Pros

I like it’s drag and drop editor and it’s prevuilt blocks. I tend to use the advanced editor cause of the nice features. It lets me customize the mobile views more nicely and has a lot of extra things like visto database support and js custom code support. I’ve used it to build a wedding site and other sites for friends and clients.

Cons

If you do more custom things like work with databases and custom JavaScript, the site can be very very painfully slow to load in the browser. I wish they’d find a way to speed up the engine.

Excellent Entry Level website software

Reviewed 2 years ago

Great software to quickly deploy a website . Very easy to use -- I'd recommend it to sole proprietors like photographers and freelance musicians. Once we hit a certain scale, we wanted something more robust.

Pros

It's incredibly easy to use and the WYSIWYG editor is intuitive. For any entry level business owner who isn't technical in nature, Wix is a great choice for quickly deploying a business website.

Cons

With ease of use, you compromise functionality. Power users will find limitations in the HTML/CSS, so this software isn't for them. There's also limited integration potential compared to some of the other CMS platforms like Shopify, Bigcommerce, etc.
