More About Big Commerce:

Big commerce is a highly robust shopping cart software that offers the flexibility and features that our clients need. Our clients often ask us for our opinion on different platforms, so we have spent a long time researching various ecom cloud solutions and found Big Commerce to be at the top of our list. Website Design By Adam has partnered with Big commerce to deliver a high quality ecommerce platform to its clients. We have learned how to develop stunning websites using their platform that are not only aesthetically pleasing, but also very robust / feature rich.

There are many advantages to going with a system like Big Commerce vs open source systems like Zen Cart, Open Cart, and other similar free systems.

We are NOT saying that Big Commerce is the right choice for every business, for instance if you need some highly complex features that are out of the “norm”, you may want to customize an open source solution.

We have outlined some of these pros and cons here:

A)     We can use an open source shopping cart like zen cart, magento, oscommerce, presta shop, or opencart.

Pros: more control of adding non-typical complex features / functions otherwise not offered by most paid carts, no monthly fees, and you can host it on your own server.

Cons: Because they don’t charge monthly fees that also means they don’t come with any support at all. Anytime you need something done, you will need to pay a web developer, anytime you need security upgrades, technology upgrades, or anything, you need to hire a developer. The UI (user interface) is complicated because it was meant more for developers, so if you plan to control the site yourself in the administration panel, you will need more training, and support. The final three cons are even more profound: You still need to pay for hosting yourself, you still need to pay for an SSL certificate yourself, and now you need to find a PCI compliance scanning company to issue you a certification and pay them for regular scanning of your shopping cart.  If you don’t do that, you will be in violation of PCI compliance rules, and could be subject to HUGE fines of up to 50K if someone’s card is compromised from your site.

B)      The second option is highly suggested: Using the big commerce, platform. Every con in option A is a pro with this choice, and every pro in option A is a con. You won’t have to worry about PCI compliance, buying hosting, SSL, finding tech support if you have a problem, and more. They even keep redundant backups of your site for you, so if something happens to their server, your site will stay intact and not be harmed. These carts were also created for novice computer users, and in case there is any confusion they have video tutorials and customer service / support. In exchange, you will need to pay a monthly fee of $19 – $60 depending on the number of products and which shopping cart solution you pick.

I know this can be highly confusing, so many options, but I guess it really depends on your particular needs. If you want to check out the feature lists before making a selection, they are listing on each website or you can also take the free trial and take 30 minutes going through it and watching the videos. If time is an issue, I can also email all your requested features to each cart provider, although I think they all include your features, I can double check with them.

We have no preference which option you choose, our main interest is the happiness of our clients!
