I love the platform and ease of use. It has been consistent and reliable for us as well as for our customers. As long as the .pdf and mp3 files are stored here safely I don't see any reason to change anything.

BigCommerce is an excellent platform with a few quirks

BigCommerce is a solid platform with a lot of out of the box features. It is very stable. In the past 6 years of using it, it has only gone down once and was back up within minutes. With the Stencil framework, the sky is the limit on customizations for advanced developers. BigCommerce has a lot to offer both basic and advanced users.

The platform is big enough to fit our current needs, it is ever-expanding to fit our future needs. The tutorials teach us everything we need to fully harness the offerings and trends in our special market. We don't see any need to go to another platform when this one is more than enough.

Ive been using big commerce since the start of my business. I've seen many companies hop to shopify but for now, I'm sticking with BC. My main complaint is if you make an error entering a product, all of your work is immediately erased. No undo button, it's just gone and that is infuriating to me.

Growing BIG with BigCommerce

Likelihood to Renew

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.

Great e-commerce platform for bookstores that are anything like us - mostly online.

We are VERY happy with BigCommerce's ability to manage our needs for running our business. All other eCommerce platforms fall short of what is offered by BigCommerce in almost all ways. We don't plan on leaving BC anytime soon! Love it and highly recommend to others who need an eCommerce solution.

BigCommerce - eCommerce SaaS platform for Power Users

BigCommerce is a great platform! It does the job and has a very good API set. I would definitely recommend it to others, but I would warn them about the cost associated with BigCommerce. There are lower cost solutions, but definitely not as feature rich as BigCommerce. It's definitely not perfect, and has a few wrinkles to iron, but nothing is ever perfect. It does the job for us and I do enjoy using the platform!!

BigCommerce - the best shopping cart solution out there!

Well - I am singing the praises of the BigCommerce platform. To date, I can honestly say that I have no real complaints about their entire system. When you have 99.9% uptime (I haven't personally experienced, nor had a customer contact me regarding an outage) and no hidden or extra fees, I'd call it a praiseworthy experience overall and find no reason not to renew.

Great Shopping Cart, but is the Price Worth It?

I will continue to offer Bigcommerce to my clients until I find something better. I like a lot of the features that are coming, some I'm not at liberty to discuss but I'm concerned that the change of their pricing table will affect my willingness to continue to recommend this product. Their unofficial motto was they don't penalize you for being successful by not charging additional fees besides the monthly fee. Now they've incorporated a transaction fee on their cheapest plan and increased the monthly cost by $10.
