An eCommerce business platform software for business of all sizes

About BigCommerce

BigCommerce is a tool that allows you to customize an ecommerce store on your website. This includes the full functionality of being able to manage orders of your listed products, handling payments and shipping, as well as handle any level of integration with any marketplaces you may utilize (such as eBay, Amazon, Facebook marketplace, and more).

The software itself is a cloud commerce solution, which can help eliminate the need of owning infrastructure and hardware. This in turn can help alleviate the stress that can come with hosting and handling maintenance.

The software itself comes in 3 versions:

  • Enterprise
  • Small Business
  • B2B

The most powerful of the 3 versions, BigCommerce typically recommends this model for companies making over $1M in sales per year.

Our experience and successful launch with BigCommerce is a great example of how like-minded brands can effectively align. Technical barriers were removed and we are able to focus on growing our business while benefiting from BigCommerce’s forward-thinking roadmap and steady cadence of new features, which are designed for brands like us.

Today we don’t put a lot of energy into our eBay efforts, but we do use it to sell our returns. The reason for that is we’re a bit limited in what our vendors allow us to sell on that platform, so it’s primarily a channel for moving returned product.

It’s extremely simple with the BigCommerce integration.

For a long time, we shied away from doing a lot of eBay business because we didn’t want to run two separate systems, but with BigCommerce we can run everything from a single location. When we get an eBay order, it still comes through as a normal order in BigCommerce, and that was very attractive to us.

We needed a new platform that still had a lot of functionality, but that was more nimble, required less technical knowledge, and that had lower cost of ownership.

We looked at Magento, Shopify Plus, Volusion, and BigCommerce through a matrix to evaluate hardware, features, and costs, as well as the technology side.

BigCommerce was the one that came out on top.
