BigCommerce is one of the more popular and widely used hosted e-commerce platforms. Hosted means you pay every month to use their platform which they host, secure and support. Essentially you are leasing the use of the software or the technical term is SaaS. Because you are leasing the software they typically include extra features that other platforms you would have to add that functionality or custom code it.
BigCommerce has many advantages which are outlined below:
Like all platforms, of course, BigCommerce has its downsides the biggest one being that if you aren’t happy with their platform you can’t pick it up and move away. They own the software and you are simply leasing it from them each month. The template and all the setup only works with their platform so if you are unhappy your only choice is to pick up and move to another platform and start all over.
Over time it can get a little costly especially if you choose to add on functionalities that aren’t native to BigCommerce, for instance, if you wish to use eShipper or a pop up these functions may cost you an additional $30 to $50 a month per service.
The short answer is pretty much anyone and any small business in the Mississauga, Kitchener-Waterloo and Toronto area, however, if you are looking for a lot of extra functionality then it will either cost you a pretty penny with custom webhooks and api calls from a specialized programmer or the monthly fees of add ons or you might want to consider Woocommerce. It’s also a secure and stable platform that offers great support so if you want the peace of mind knowing you can call anytime if you have a problem or a question about how to do something this is the platform for you.
