Here at eSeller Solutions we are always striving to provide you with the best in eCommerce tools. That is why we are happy to recommend BigCommerce as a solution for online selling and payment processing.
Who are BigCommerce?
BigCommerce have been leaders in eCommerce for many years but in 2016 they took the bold decision to rebrand and reissue their products, and the results speak for themselves. Over 95,000 live website are powering their online retail business with BigCommerce. With the new brand came a large increase in feature and functionality, along with some super useful integrations.
Wonderfully Easy to Use
One of the main considerations shop owners want to take into account when selecting an eCommerce platform is the ease of use. Most of sellers are not web designers and do not want to spend hours trying to get a shop up and running, frankly their interest is in getting the products to the customers, and quite rightly so.
Thankfully, one of the reasons we are more than happy to work with BigCommerce is the fact that it is intuitive and easy to use to get a basic store up and running. They have a series of helpful tutorials available and a step but step guide to getting up and running. For those with more technically knowledge – or those who prefer to get a web person in to do their set up, there are many really useful advanced developer tools – which maybe out of reach for the average shop owner. However, we are more than happy to get you set up and running, leaving you free to get on with the buying and selling – just ask us for a quote!
In order to have a good shop you will have to pay money somewhere. In terms of the competition, BigCommerce sit in the middle of the field, meaning they are affordable for most. You could select a cheaper option but the downside tends to be the functionality is just not up to speed and you may find yourself with a run of the mill shop that doesn’t shine as you would like it to. A 15 day free trial is offered as standard which gives you time to have a look and see what you think. After that they offer a range of plans to suit all budgets, depending of course on what you are looking for.
Having a website is vital
The bottom line is in order to compete in online sales you will need a platform that has been designed to accept payments, control stock and showcase your products in a way that hooks the buyers in. We realise that this can be a daunting process so as well as recommending the best platforms we are of course more than happy to be the ‘developer’ and get you a site that shines. We have years of online selling experience as well as website development knowledge so are in a great place to save you time and money by setting up a store you can be proud of.
