BigCommerce VS. Magento

BigCommerce VS. Magento

in this city we're gonna tok about
bigcommerce verse Magento which platform
should you use to start your online
business bring over the pros and the
cons of both of these and at the end of
this video I will announce a winner and
we'll tok about why you should pick
which one of these platforms for your
online store so let's start right away
with the pros of bigcommerce so some of
the pros with big commerce is it's great
right out of the box has a ton of really
good features such as gift cards live
shipping quotes and built in a rating
system all this stuff is very very
helpful very important it's also got a
great abandoned cart utility that you
can use this is great if you want to try
to get customers that put stuff in the
cart but for some reason got distracted
and walked away so so far we're toking
about a lot of really good features that
BigCommerce has that Magento doesn't
have is lacking in a little bit it's
also got a partnership with Alibaba so
if you want to do drop shipping
BigCommerce is a great option because it
integrates really well with Alibaba I'm
not a huge fan of drop shipping but if
you do want to do it and you can
definitely add big commerce over Magento
hands-down in my opinion top of that you
can customize the templates it's much
easier much more user friendly in my
opinion to customize templates on big
commerce
than it is on Magento I mean if you're
highly tiknical sure you can definitely
do it in Magento but I think that
bigcommerce the template quality even
just the template quality from standard
without even needing to customize it is
so much better on bigcommerce you can
also import data using a CSV file an
Excel spreadsheet file which is very
very helpful so there's a lot of
advantages for big commerce and one last
one if you do blogging if you do some
kind of content marketing big commerce
is very helpful actually one one more
one customer support great supports big
commerce has way better customer support
than Magento does if you have an issue
with your Magento site good luck you're
gonna have to you hire someone it's
gonna cost you a lot of money to get
started so let's tok about some of the
advantages of Magento though it's free
kind of it's not really actually free
you have to pay for hosting still and
for the higher end packages it's very
very very expensive a lot of big
ecommerce retailers used to use Magento
in my opinion I think a lot of them are
from what I can see a lot of them are
switching over to Shopify but they used
to use Magento you own everything with
Magento which is very helpful because
it's all your own platform you can do
whatever you want you can customize it
you can change everything you there's a
lot more things you can change using
Magento then you can with big commerce
it's not user friendly but if you're
very tiknical Magento is a good option
so let's tok about some of the negative
some of the negatives of big commerce
first some of the cons selling limit
fifty thousand dollars for a basic plan
so if you sell more than fifty thousand
dollars in a year they'll bump you up to
a more expensive plan so what does this
mean big commerce is just more expensive
to start it's a $30 a month fee plus
you're gonna have to build the website
from scratch though it might be a little
bit cheaper to build a good-looking
website on big commerce than it would on
Magento from scratch but if you're
highly tiknical you can use Magento and
you can probably build build it from
scratch by yourself
so some of the negatives that's the
negatives for big commerce let's tok
about the negatives for Magento so
you're gonna have to pay for hosting
it's not free a lot of people think that
the basic package is free no you're
gonna have to host it or pay for hosting
and that's gonna cost money on top of
that you're not gonna get as much
tiknical support if you have an issue
good luck they don't really care there
you're not paying them so why are they
gonna help you out it's harder to use if
you're a highly tiknical person and you
know what you're doing sure Magento is a
decent option but it's much harder to
use so I'm gonna throw a curveball in
there and I'd say Shopify it is actually
your best bet and what am I saying this
I think big commerce is better than
magenta for most beginner level people
they make it so much easier to get
started but I think Shopify is even
better than big commerce and I have a
video up here comparing shopify
bigcommerce so don't take my word for it
watch that video and I explain in detail
why the quick answer why Shopify is
better than big commerce in my opinion
is they're only cutting edge they have
more features they have better
addons they're better integrations they
have a lot of stuff going for them it's
I'd say Shopify is in 98 out of 100 big
Commerce is 89 out of 100 so definitely
respectable but Shopify is better and
it's about the same it's almost exactly
the same price so I would actually go
with Shopify but let's tok about a
winner Shopify or big commerce it's
really up to you if you're starting a
new website and you're not that
tiknical avoid Magento like the plague
a lot of people in foreign countries and
I'm toking india-pakistan really like
Magento really like WooCommerce because
they're highly tiknical and I don't
mean to over generalize but a lot of
times they're on a little bit tighter of
a budget the people at least that I've
toked to so if you're serious though
and you have even the smallest a budget
it's only $30 a month for Shopify or big
commerce go with one of these for 99% of
people maybe a hundred some of the
people watching this video Shopify is
the better option over big commerce like
