Bigcommerce good for e-commerce store

2019-04-15

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 any website programming knowledge you can still have your decent website, the package that bigcommerce include with their pricing you have enough tools to start runing your business without investing too much time. we save a lot of time with bigcommerce , uploading the products through CSV files and then we can export back all the info from bigcommerce to others marketplaces like eBay or Amazon, we recommend bigcommerce if you don't want to spend too much money but at the same time you would like to have a decent website, we just recommend to bigcommerce add more features to customize the website, like make more dynamic like other competitors can offer like Wix, and also offer more different templates, animations, etc , with more professional look, they haven't updated the templates a long time ago, just basic updates thank you

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

2019-02-13

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.
