BigCommerce

If you're a large company with at least 100 products, BigCommerce would be right for you. When compared to WordPress websites, you don't need to know anything technical in order to add/remove/edit products or do anything with your site. Their interface makes it easy to add products without having to know PHP or any other programming language.

CS-Cart Multi-Vendor Marketplace Platform

For quickly setting up a most intuitive online marketplace, CS-Cart Multi-Vendor is the best one. The software is very well suited for those who have some basic knowledge about backend customization, installation, server setup, proper server configuration etc. Though I'm sure the support team will get you up and running. Only few third-party service providers are very professional, provide honest service and will help you to run your business smoothly. I would highly recommend to use CS-Cart Multi-Vendor.

Pros

BigCommerce

  • Features (less reliance on 3rd party plugins)
  • Admin Panel (somewhat subjective, but I find it better than Magento and Shopify)
  • Price (almost half the price of Shopify Plus in our case)
  • Community Resources (e.g. forums, monthly townhalls, private Facebook group, etc.)
  • Apps/Plugins (they have most all the popular ones)
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

CS-Cart Multi-Vendor Marketplace Platform

  • Quick and easy set up of a multi-vendor marketplace
  • Very easy-to-use page designer
  • Huge marketplace of add-ons to cover pretty much anything you need

Cons

BigCommerce

  • Steep learning curve - if you have a web/IT person, great, you're golden. If you're just starting out, or switching from a platform that's a little more plug-n-play, you'll discover that along with the robustness of BC comes it's many, many different choices. Which is great....and a bit overwhelming. It IS easy to learn though, just keep plugging away at it and don't be afraid to ask for help through the community, the help desk, or the web!
April Chin | TrustRadius Reviewer

CS-Cart Multi-Vendor Marketplace Platform

  • The high cost of the platform itself and plugins.
  • Unavailability of the mobile application in the basic version of the platform.
  • Relatively difficult process of installing updates if you are new to IT.

We are really very likely to renew our use of BigCommerce. The reason I chose 9 instead of 10 is simply because of the hiccups we are running into with our POS. BigCommerce is excellent, but we may even want to take a step further and get into and ERP that can take care of everything. Since we are a brick & mortar store first, and eCommerce second, our POS is very important to our day to day operations

As with any system you use often, you find many things you like, you dislike, or things you would do differently. In general I think BigCommerce is one of the easiest ecommerce website platforms on the market to build a good looking and functioning site. The whole process is optimized so a non-coder should be able to get the site up and running. Coding needed is very limited (if any), and for many code-heavy issues there are solutions through the Apps Marketplace or the community message boards.

The software consists of most of all e-commerce related features. Also, there are plenty of third party addons are available in the market which can improve our business. There are a lot of powerful themes available in the cs cart market which improve the look and feel on the front store.If CS-cart adjusted the price on their software license cost, controlling the third party addon cost and provide more freelancers with cheaper hourly rate for the customization on the cs-cart multi vendor software, the cs-cart company can be a master among other e-commerce software companies in the world.

Because they are always there no matter how simple or complex the question is, if they don't know the answer they don't fake it and just make you go away feeling frustrated.. they get you to someone that does know the answer. I always appreciate their help and their honesty!

They have a comprehensive online help file system that makes it easy to do almost anything. They cover just about everything you'd want to do with your online store with images, clear descriptions and in some cases video. I will, however, say the videos should be a little more professorially done and not sound like the employees are doing it in their cubical.

A certified BigCommerce design and solution partner will usually comprise a team of highly experienced designers, developers and marketers. It is our view that in the vast majority of cases, this will pay dividends in the long-term - especially for those teams that could use the extra support.

Alternatives Considered

BigCommerce

BigCommerce is way better than 3dcart, it was comparable to Shopify but with the new product promotions available it is better than Shopify now. It is better than Magento in that you do not need dedicated programmers to make simple changes to your store

It's a one-time payment and the entire CMS is in your control, can list unlimited products and vendors. no need to depend on an e-commerce platform to pay huge commissions. promote your own brand globally. change the looks of your listing with multiple themes, there are vast add on and page themes to enhance look and controls.

BigCommerce has a monthly "Town Hall" meeting where they show what they are working on, what projects are in the pipeline and what they are doing to increase the useability and functionality of the platform.There is a Q&A session at the end where users can ask about specific projects or progress. Each and every session, there is significant progress on ease of use, dedicated platform support in both hardware - redundant server farms, partnering with Google Cloud, identifying and mitigating DDOS attacks in under 200msec, quadrupling server capacity for large traffic times i.e. Black Friday week, etc.—that makes seamless scaling possible.

Return on Investment

BigCommerce

  • Better site management has increased order volume.
  • Minimizing time spent on page setup by utilizing themes already provided by BigCommerce allows time and effort to be spent elsewhere.
  • Without a current eCommerce employee, promotions, product updates, and changes would not have been possible without much time spent and at a very high cost to our company without BigCommerce to execute the necessary changes.

  • Positive impact in learning to set up a shopping cart
  • ROI is questionable, as we are still building our business model
  • Positive impact on our business model and direction
