Bigcommerce True Linkswear Home 500
TRUE Linkswear originally launched on the Shopify platform. We were with Shopify for a number of years, but it began to feel like it wasn't offering the customization we needed...That's when we found BigCommerce. The platform seemed like the perfect blend of user-friendly features with the ability to customize our site exactly as we wanted.Jason Moore, Partner - Creative Development, truelinkswear.com
