Founded in 2009, BigCommerce is one of the leading platforms in the market. If we're being honest, and of course in our opinion, there are really only two major players in the industry, and BigCommerce has a cozy seat in the top two. It is a very robust and comprehensive platform suitable for large and small businesses alike. It is even used by giants like Toyota and Ben & Jerry's. The platform hosts somewhere in the neighborhood of 100,000 e-commerce stores. That alone says a lot.
The platform is extremely user friendly, and seems very much tailored to those lacking coding expertise. It's basically a turn-key solution for creating an e-commerce store, and many important facets of creating an online store that can be intimidating for the less tech-savvy (like SEO, website design, etc) are made extremely easy and intuitive on BigCommerce. You just can't beat drag and drop page creation or step-by-step SEO.
But don't let that fool you into thinking the platform is limited; Big Commerce basically has no limits when it comes to customization and advanced features. In addition to the overwhelming list of features that platform boasts, there are over 200 apps that can be installed to further customize your store. What's more, for those that are more tech savvy and prefer to get into the gears, BigCommerce allows access to source code to allows all the coders out there to have truly full control over their store.
Another major perk to BigCommerce is its support and help community. Between customer service available by phone and chat, the massive library of support documentation, the community help forum, and even its own "University" for learning the ways of BigCommerce, you'll never have a question go unanswered.
The intuitive, user-friendly interface coupled with the massive list of features and endless potential for customization make Big Commerce one of the easiest, if not the easiest platform with which to create a store and scale to whatever heights desired. You simply cannot go wrong with BigCommerce.
