Powerful sales-driving tools not available on Shopify Plus

We include them in your subscription, saving you thousands of dollars to reinvest in growth

faceted-search

Native faceted search

Increase sales by more than 10% by helping customers find products more quickly. Our built-in faceted search supports large catalogs and custom facets, all at no additional cost. Similar functionality on Shopify Plus requires a third-party solution and can cost over $500 a month.

Industry-leading checkout and shipping

Our highly customizable single-page checkout can increase conversion by over 12%. We build in shipping quotes from ShipperHQ, the industry’s leading shipping rate rules engine. It has helped BigCommerce retailers save up to $60,000 per year in misquoted shipping costs — and it’s not available on Shopify Plus.

Best-in-class search engine optimization

Shopify Plus offers limited ability to customize your metadata. All BigCommerce Enterprise sites are designed to rank, with optimized URL structures, full metadata access, sitewide HTTPS and fast page loads.

Built-in discounting and segmentation

Seamlessly offer promotions with no programming needed using our robust discount rules. Customer groups let you offer wholesaling and run targeted campaigns to encourage repeat business. Shopify Plus requires additional apps — and expense — to do the same.

An ecommerce platform built to scale

Our solution offers the flexibility and performance you need to grow your business

The most flexible hosted storefront framework

Unlike Shopify Plus, our industry-best storefront framework features non-proprietary coding languages and a local development environment that uses your live product catalog. Our platform supports big catalogs using an intuitive category structure with the ability to add and manage subcategories. Shopify Plus doesn’t offer categories.

Unmatched uptime and security

Our high-capacity servers have delivered 100% uptime during Cyber Week for two years straight, and we offer an SLA for added insurance. Level 1 PCI compliance, cutting-edge DDOS mitigation and automatic fraud detection are all built in to protect you and your customers.

Open architecture and a robust partner network

Our open platform lets you seamlessly connect to critical business software, with a powerful API that processes updates up to 100x faster than Shopify Plus. Our certified partner network’s award-winning design and integrations specialists care about helping you grow your business.
