BigCommerce Pricing Reviews

Pros
  • It's cheap.
  • Ease of use Elegant design Simple to customize SUPER AFFORDABLE
  • For a beginner, it is user friendly and prices reasonably. It is easy to list items for the most part.
  • + Looks easy - but looks are deceiving. Still fine for a limited product range and simple merchandise.
Cons
  • some of the apps are very expensive and this is a huge con because of the high overhead this creates
  • The price is by far the least attractive aspect to Bigcommerce, especially for a small business like we have.
  • The only thing I would say is a little more cumbersome, is when listing variations. It has a few too many steps involved.
  • Adding products is so time consuming. The templates aren’t as pretty and clean as other shopping carts, but it gets the job done

their design partners design skills in my opinion are mediocre

It's just ok I have a simple store. My issue with BG is all of the "have our design partners" design your site promo. And their design partners design skills in my opinion are mediocre. I designed my site and took days to figure out their coding file systems and to decipher their %global% meanings to finally get the look I want of my site and it's a simple design but professional. You can't even ask them a question on changing a color unless some design partner comes in the thread promoting. And the reps tell you "we can't answer that" and I just had a simple color change question (wanted to change a thumbnail color of 1 item only, the way the css files are it would've changed everything)! It's easy to use in a way BUT again they have all of these %global% jargon that you have to decode. I program and design and I had another designer try to help me he gave up and he designed big time sites.It's cheap.

It was an amazing deal, now it's a little less so

Review Source: Capterra

I used Big Commerce for about 3 years and it did a lot of things very well and let you customize it however you wanted. A few things here and there were a little buggy like having to put free shipping on a digital product, but it was clearly tailored for product sales so that was our own fault. We wished there was a way to change that but it isn't available at the moment. When we signed up the product was incredibly cheap, to run a store that did $180k in sales/month. This past summer they raised our rate significantly but it still is a good deal. If you are a low volume high price store the pricing is bad but if you are selling a lot of under $200 items I can see their pricing model costing a lot of money to run each month.

Affordable multi-channel listing product. We started using this software to do multi-channel listing on our own website and on ebay. It was fairly easy to setup, and the customer service was excellent. Some good basic free templates. The more custom templates are not badly priced either. Order management was easy.

BigCommerce may at first feel like a splurge with its price, but it backs quite a punch with all that the software can offer. It offers some of the best web integrations that I have seen, and makes it incredibly seamless to create a website and manage orders, shipments, and customer profiles and communication. It's well-worth the sticker price! Customer service is also top-notch and quick to answer questions or problems.

Alright, so first things first. BigCommerce is a freaking God send when it comes to hosted online store apps. The interface is simple to navigate, the template system is well organized and easy to customize and the customer support is top notch. We just switched our store to BigCommerce from a competitor and couldn't be happier. We've been selling online for almost 5 years now, so getting us to change software was no easy task. But, after digging into what BigCommerce offered, it was pretty much a no-brainer to make the switch. If you're in the market for an eCommerce platform....

Overall BigCommerce might be the market leader, but we're finding too many problems with the software and very slow support. Eg. freight is a BIG issue in our case, as our company is selling bulky and heavy items, where a miscalculated price may be costing us quickly in excess of $50 on a single order. • the system cannot handle "cubed weight" (by volume instead of weight) as charged by many transport companies • you cannot define shipping method per item (eg. we send small items by Post, large items by freight forwarder) • you cannot charge a handling/packaging fee for individual items Support: forget it! I've waited for over a week to have a simple ticket resolved, a post in the "Community Forum" (second support venue) is still without a single reply after 6 days!! Support staff seems to be of little inside knowledge when it comes to the coding (and resulting errors) of the software, so technical questions bounce back and forth [BigCommerce has always vacancies for Support]. + Looks easy - but looks are deceiving. Still fine for a limited product range and simple merchandise.

It saves us time and energy managing the online sales side of our business.This shopping cart just works. It manages inventory on a simple level, but we integrated it with FIshbowl Inventory, and the API connection has been rock solid with it capturing all the inventory changes, and capturing all of the sales and inventory financial data in Quickbooks. Good optional and kit product functionality as well.

This platform is great for working in an online store. The platform has ease of use and an excellent ability to manage customers, products and orders.

Bigcommerce has more features out of the box than most any other shopping cart including Shopify. It's just the little things like being able to put custom messages like "ships in 1-2 days" on each product. Lot of product options that you see on larger big box websites. Cost is reasonable when compared to other solutions. Integrates with a ton of 3rd Party applications. Easy to find solutions to help you succeed.
