I am going to start my Ecommerce business, Which platform should I choose for website? Magento Or Bigcommerce?
Well both of them are very popular and well famous. But before choosing something for your e-commerce website you should understand whether the above two are matching your requirement.
Firstly- Bigcommerce is cloud computing which means you can access it anywhere from any computer thus giving you genuine accessibility.
Magento is (SaaS) which means the software has to be installed in all your servers and computer.
Secondly- In Bigcommerce you are really not bothered with hosting and all. It does mostly everything for you . for Magento you have to do everything after buying the on premise software you need to look forward for hosting and all.
Thirdly- Bigcommerce is already a defined set of plugins and everything which means u don't have the accessibility to have the full ownership. You can't develop it further according to your choice. But this is possible in Magento, if you have your own IT team and you want to develop it all according to your ideas and implemation then go for it.
Fourthly- For Bigcommerce the cost is quite less as compared to Magento ( since in Magento you have to pay for hosting, license, bugs fixes, security and PCI compliance etc but for Bigcommerce you don't have to pay for this)
But both of them have their own benefit it totally depends on your requirement.
If you have a 1000-8000 product you can go with big commerce. But if the product count is far greater than this you should go with magento.
I have really just used Woocommerce for everything. Wordpress has never done me wrong.
