All BigCommerce plans include built-in features that offer the functionality of 60% of Shopify's best-selling apps, which can save you up to $5,000 per year.
Shopify charges transaction fees, plus up to 2% of your sales if you don't use their payment gateway. BigCommerce never charges a transaction fee, and you can use your preferred payment gateway with no penalties.
BigCommerce Enterprise plans for higher-volume merchants start at less than half the cost of Shopify Plus plans, which are at least $2,000 per month.
BigCommerce's integrations with ShipStation and InStockNotify have made it possible for our team to perform functions that would have previously taken days or even weeks in a matter of minutes.

There was a lot of unneeded complexity in Magento, which was really difficult for us. BigCommerce was just much easier...if you had only spent five minutes on a computer, you probably could navigate the basics.

With our previous platform, simply processing orders was becoming costly. With BigCommerce, it’s much easier. My staff is happier, and we have time to explore new opportunities to grow our business.
