BigCommerce

When I first started using the BigCommerce platform, it was so user-friendly! Again, it was very easy to use and figure out right away. I had no issues with finding where everything was and it is organized in such a way, that it made sense where to look for something. I also really like the customer order layout as we have to issue refunds a lot and it's very simple.

Nop Solutions, Ltd.

nopCommerce is an ideal solution for businesses that want to tailor the customer journey for discovering and purchasing products. The nopCommerce solution is designed to adapt to you, not the other way around. The platform works best when you partner with a solution provider like ourselves. It also works well if you have a team of in-house .NET developers. A one-person shop will likely find less value in a platform like this if they're looking to spin up a small ecommerce site with just a few button clicks.

Pros

BigCommerce

  • They have a great WYSIWYG interface for creating webpage content.
  • The software allows us to create multiple pack sizes, using different units of measure, for any or all of our products.
  • It is very easy to add product categories, manipulate the top-level menu headings, and swap out graphic elements.

Nop Solutions, Ltd.

  • As I came from Microsoft .Net technical experience with more than 15 years in IT industry, the nopCommerce .Net based open sourced framework is the best eCommerce framework in terms of architectural perspective - such as incorporating with Entity Framework code first approach, Domain Driven Architecture, using ASP.Net MVC, Unit Testing, ...etc.
  • When my client asked for an eCommerce portal, the whole team was struggling from designing a database to identifying the requirements. nopCommerce has everything we need. All the industrial standard eCommerce features are included. It saves hours of database design, application design and also the client's requirements are easily fit into nopCommerce's features.
  • The cost of nopCommerce- the last time we paid was a $200 one time cost for using the production site. It was ridiculously cost effective. As it is opened source, the whole community is supporting and constantly making this framework better and better.
  • I set up a web site within a week using nopCommerce to sell my own products online. It was so easy to use, deploy, and set up.

Cons

BigCommerce

  • The backend interface for working with orders could use some more options for dynamically querying and sorting orders. For example, it's very difficult to see all of the orders that are currently unfulfilled for a given customer. It's also impossible to see all of the orders in a given date range that contained a specific SKU.
  • It would be nice to be able to delete SKUs that are no longer in use. Even if the product is removed, the SKU it held is still stored and locked in the system. Sometimes these show up on exports and cause confusion.
  • Some of the options and settings are a little unintuitive on their location, and you need to dig a few options deep to find the ones you're looking for. A more straightforward settings page would be appreciated.
  • More ways to customize check out, such as with separately acceptable Terms and Conditions, and alerts for Delays in Shipping or Fulfillment.

  • More community templates would be great.
  • Some of the pricing can be a bit tricky, especially configured items... there is a likelihood of mispriced items with the current structure

    Likelihood to Renew

    BigCommerce

    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

    Usability

    BigCommerce

    I literally don't use anything else anymore. It's the best option out there. What else can I say? If you have read the rest of my review, and it makes sense to you, there you go. Everything just works. Have had to call support 1 time in 7 years. That says a lot.

    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!

    I have asked numerous questions and the team treats my random questions as if they are critical to the continued success of their product. They really take each users' questions to heart and strive to solve them. I cannot commend them enough on how fast they respond to questions as well as the follow-through given to things thay may or may not even be a part of their platform.

    Online Training

    BigCommerce

    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.

    BigCommerce

    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.

    Go for a plugin based development if you would like to extend nopCommerce. This approach will make it easier for you to upgrade the software.

    Alternatives Considered

    BigCommerce

    BigCommerce VS Shopify: Do I like Shopify? Yes. Has Shopify positioned itself as more of a get rich quick drop shipping platform, and alternative to marketplaces like Etsy? Also yes. Listen, I still like Shopify a lot, and there are absolutely still cases where I feel Shopify is the best option out there. Shopify is beautiful on the front-end, you'll definitely have a fantastic looking website, but on the back end, which is very À la carte, it just feels like you get more nickel and dimed to death for some simple functionality, that at this point should be native to the platform. I will say that Shopify's native email marketing, pay as you go, is a really nice feature. BigComemrce VS Square/Weebly: We're talking about two hemp-friendly eCom platforms, and while you can absolutely build yourself a nice eCom website on Square/Weebly...it can be at times a frustratingly simple website. Super basic, which is both good and bad in that, if you're new to website, it's easy to work with. If you're a person with any professional experience, I promise, Square/Weebly will probably frustrate. In most cases I would recommend BigCommerce. BigCommerce VS WordPress: If I'm managing a website or an eCommerce website, I like both options, but I would say that because I have ten years experience doing so, I find both platforms to be robust, and easy to work with, whereas a person new to this world would probably have a hard time navigating either platform.

    NopCommerce offers you more flexibility where it comes to customization and scaling your application. The customization and extension is easy as well as the theme and plugin structure adds a large value to the overall system. The API's introduced by nopCommerce makes it more efficient when it comes to integrations and developing a mobile application on top of your eCommerce platform. The customer owns 100% of the source code without any extra fee.

    Scalability

    BigCommerce

    Very easy to upgrade plans based on growth. Onboarding is fairly easy; however, it's a real pain for developers that the store owner has to add all the themes/apps or basically anything that costs money. It's hard to walk less tech-savvy people through this.

    Return on Investment

    BigCommerce

    • Users like the professional look and navigation of the site, which increased orders.
    • Processing and fulfilling orders is much faster than with my previous system (osCommerce).
    • BigCommerces manages all backend codes, which includes security. That alone has been a great investment.

    • It has been our sole platform for developing online stores for the last 9 years and our business have been growing year to year.
    • The disadvantage of nopCommerce is that it is not as well known as other competitors, which makes it more difficult to sell.
