Big Cartel LLC
It's well suited for simple e-commerce and basic inventory management needs.

Sana Commerce
Its suited more for B2B-focused or mid-size companies that want to have a more robust platform for their eCommerce and don't want to invest that much (like the case of Magento and other big names). If you want to make constant UX and design enhancements and tests, you'll have a couple of headaches. It's not that bad but; you wont be able to do it all without customizing and spending good money on it.

  • For our needs I really can't think of anything!

Sana Commerce
  • The service could be much better. It's expensive and hard to monitor because they only check cases twice a week (if you don't have a pre-plan).
  • The language and different time schedules have been an issue for tech problems. They're in Holland and Ukraine and we're in Mexico, and is really hard to find developers who know the platform to hire as an extra resource.
  • You can't import SKUS to populate a landing page programmatically.

Sana Commerce is not as robust, flexible (or expensive) as Magento but is better (and more expensive) than Shopify. It is well balanced and you can customize according to your clients' needs. They are constantly upgrading their platform so you can keep your eCommerce up to date, but you must consider an extra cost to adapt it to the latest version.
