FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What are people are asking about BigCommerce?

Why would you choose BigCommerce over Shopify?

BigCommerce and Shopify are two of the world's leading eCommerce software as a service (SaaS) platforms.
Shopify is a great choice if you’re looking for a low-maintenance store and are happy to use plug-and-play apps and integrations to extend your online store capability. However, BigCommerce is the best ecommerce platform to offer comprehensive features straight out of the box.

In addition to being feature-rich, a BigCommerce website enjoys lower overheads, meets Level 1 Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance and safeguards your business with top-of-the-line DDoS security protection. Easily connect your internal systems to the BigCommerce Enterprise platform with the industry’s fastest APIs that can handle 400+ calls per second and process updates up to 100x faster than Shopify Plus. Managing a large inventory is a breeze with BigCommerce’s Enterprise platform that can handle up to 600 SKUs per product with 250 options.

Why would you choose BigCommerce over Magento?

BigCommerce and Magento are both leading eCommerce platforms. BigCommerce is a SaaS (Software as a Service), cloud-based platform, whereas Magento is a PaaS (Platform as a Service), open-source platform. The Magento platform is ideal if you have complex business requirements. It is robust and highly-customisable (including app integrations), with advanced multi-store and B2B capabilities. The catch with having endless creative freedom however, is that you need to either have a team of in-house eCommerce developers or engage the services of an eCommerce agency – which significantly adds to your TCO.

Bigcommerce offers advanced out-of-the-box features, enabling you to deliver a quality eCommerce solution fast, and without technical headache. While you may initially choose to work with a BigCommerce agency to get up and running, that engagement may cease once your online business is established, leaving only the software subscription fees to pay on a regular basis.The platform solution you choose significantly affects the maintenance and security of your online store. Once the Magento software is licenced, the business is then wholly responsible for all infrastructure, administration and maintenance. Bug fixes, managing software releases, managing and maintaining any extensions, ensuring security compliance – that’s all on you. So caution here – if you’re not running the latest software release, your online store risks PCI non-compliance. If you want to have the administration and maintenance hassle all taken care of, the BigCommerce SaaS solution is for you.

With BigCommerce, software updates are automatic so security compliance is never compromised, they have the industry’s fastest APIs, and boast a 99.9% server uptime.Confused about SaaS vs. PaaS, cloud vs. on-premise solutions or anything else eCommerce-related? Give our team a call – we speak in plain English and can help you easily navigate today’s complex digital commerce environment.

What are the key benefits of BigCommerce?

Unlike competitors, BigCommerce has no hidden costs associated with setting up an online store. With no transaction fees and more out-of-the-box features built into the platform itself, your ongoing costs are less than those platforms which require the integration of third party apps to get the equivalent feature sets.  

BigCommerce supports B2B and B2C functionality in a single platform, empowering you to service your wholesale customers from the same website. BigCommerce offers a robust and reliable shopping experience for your visitor, with industry-leading fast APIs and median uptime of 99.9%. BigCommerce is ideal for mid-market and enterprise businesses looking to streamline back-end processes and expand their operations. Complex product and pricing requirements are handled with ease with 70+ cart level discounts and coupon codes, and extensive product options including support for up to 600 product variants.  

To ensure you’re extracting the most value from the platform, contact the team at Online Visions – a BigCommerce partner and leading Australian eCommerce agency – and draw on our expertise to ensure your online success.

How easy is it to set up a store with BigCommerce?

BigCommerce provides customisable store themes with comprehensive eCommerce functionality out of the box. Due to these advanced capabilities, there is a larger learning curve associated with the platform. Businesses would benefit from either using an experienced BigCommerce web design agency to create your online store or engaging with an eCommerce consultant to help define your requirements to ensure your final website meets those needs.  

Other platforms may boast the capability to build a website without developers in mere hours, however they fail to mention that you may also have to purchase and install many additional apps to get the base functionality needed to trade. Depending on the capabilities of your team, these app integrations may require employing the expertise of a developer or eCommerce agency to help.

How secure is BigCommerce?

As a BigCommerce partner, Online Visions can confidently recommend this secure platform as it offers multiple layers of enterprise-grade security to protect your business from unauthorised access or malicious attacks. This security is further supported by best-in-class uptime, top-of-the-line DDoS security protection and Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance.

Are there any API limitations with BigCommerce Enterprise?

Connect your internal systems to the BigCommerce platform with powerful APIs that streamline your business processes. BigCommerce Enterprise offers unlimited API calls and can handle 400+ calls per second  – facilitating the fast and accurate flow of information relating to inventory, customers, and pricing for example.

To learn more about API capabilities feel free to contact Online Visions and talk with one of our BigCommerce consultants.

What is a SaaS platform and how does it apply to eCommerce?

Software as a service (SaaS) is a delivery model in which cloud-based software is licenced on a subscription basis. Compared to on-premise solutions – where software is installed and managed on site, users pay a service fee (typically monthly) to access the platform via the internet.

The key benefit of a SaaS platform over on-premise solutions is that you are not burdened with the responsibility for maintaining the software or managing the various vendors needed to run an on-premise software, and you can avoid the unpredictable costs associated with the aforementioned tasks.

Engage with an eCommerce agency to learn more about how SaaS could benefit your business.
