What to Expect

Implementing Your BigCommerce Solution

Like Shopify, BigCommerce is easy to use. However it has much more complex capabilities. You can access and control: features, themes, apps, multiple payment gateways, and advanced analytics.

All-in-One Solution

BigCommerce offers an out-of-the-box solution that includes hosting, themes and apps, giving you access to multiple payment gateways, including blogging capabilities, marketing tools and more. Similar ease of use as rival Shopify.

Multiple Sales Channels

BigCommerce offers seamless integrations into marketplaces like eBay, Amazon and Google Shopping, but it also includes in-person sales through integration with Square POS as well as the ability to sell on Facebook and Pinterest.

No Transaction Fees

BigCommerce does not charge transaction fees on their monthly plans, however, you will be obligated to to pay fees charged by the payment gateways like PayPal, Stripe, Square and Authorize.net. This is outside of BigCommerce’s control.

Shipping Options

Merchants get a break on shipping with BigCommerce. Feature quick set up for configuring shipping options. You can also give your customers more accurate shipping quotes with real-time rates from such carriers as USPS, UPS and FedEx.

Extra Fees

This mainly concerns stores that accrue more than $125,000 in revenue per year or process over 2,000 orders every year. If you go beyond either of those numbers, you’ll pay the $199/month flat fee along with an additional $80/month for every additional 1,000 orders you process.

Expensive Themes

BigCommerce offers very visually appealing, modern styles for their storefronts. However, there are only seven free themes, and the most popular premium themes range between $175-$200. Something to consider for your initial investment and start-up costs.
