WordPress VS. BigCommerce: Why We Aren't Wooed

WHICH E-COMMERCE SYSTEM IS RIGHT FOR YOU?

Constantly evolving e-commerce solutions are revolutionizing the way we buy and sell products online. If you sell products on the Internet, choosing the right e-commerce software is crucial for you and your customers to easily conduct business online.  However, there are hundreds of e-commerce solutions and selecting the best system can be overwhelming.

HOW DO YOU BEGIN TO MAKE A DECISION ON WHICH SYSTEM TO USE?

With so many points to consider narrowing down the options is difficult. It’s important to pick a a system that offers features and functions that are easy to implement, yet robust enough to grow with your business. Today we will discuss WordPress’s plugin, WooCommerce and the all-in-one
e-commerce solution, BigCommerce.

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES?

WordPress is a content management system that provides a platform to build a custom website and easily maintain the content. The system starts with a dynamic theme which can be customized using plugins and widgets. WooCommerce is the free plugin WordPress uses to create an online store. This option is most helpful for companies with 50 products or less and does not require integration with a brick and mortar store.  Premium features can be purchased to make WooCommerce more robust.

On the other hand, BigCommerce is a self-containing e-commerce system built for companies selling more than 50 products. In addition to a host of standard features, BigCommerce offers value-added tools like shipping rates, multiple currencies, and simple product and category organization. BigCommerce does require a monthly fee which includes website support, hosting and access to all it’s features.

AND THE WINNER IS…

With the amazing features and simple to use dashboard, it’s easy to see why I highly recommend BigCommerce for your e-commerce needs. This system makes creating and managing your online store a breeze.
