Two big players in the ecommerce platform world are BigCommerce and Magento. Both have the reputation of being powerful ecommerce platforms that allow you to customize your store and integrate with necessary extensions.
Let’s dig into some of the key differences between the two platforms.
Magento is an open source platform that has been increasingly making shifts to appear more like a Software as a Service (SaaS) platform by introducing a cloud offering to give merchants the option of having a single vendor handle both software and hosting.
BigCommerce is already uniquely positioned as an open SaaS platform.
This allows merchants to achieve customization and integrations that had historically only been possible using an open source platform. BigCommerce is also offering 4 months free for Magento users that are looking to migrate.
For merchants already familiar with Magento that are facing the end of life of Magento V1, now is a crucial time to consider the options that are available on the market.
Not sure which one is right for you? Here is a quick breakdown comparing the two platforms with some of their key benefits.
For another view, here’s what Wayne Ainsworth, Ecommerce Manager, from Awesome GTI has said about BigCommerce and Magento.
“We’d been on Magento for several years, but there came a point when we realized that the platform wasn’t optimized for what we were trying to do anymore. Plus, we were never sure if the data from that system was 100% correct. We needed a hosted platform that allowed us to focus more on the marketing and selling of products rather than always being tied up with system maintenance. That’s why BigCommerce stood out as a big opportunity for us. We were expanding into B2B markets and fundamentally changing the way we do things online, and BigCommerce helped us accomplish that. It’s helped us get to where we are today.”
In the end, BigCommerce looks to come out on top in this comparison as a SaaS platform built for seamless scalability at an affordable price.
Not convinced? BigCommerce is offering 4 months free and 10% off migration services for merchants that switch from Magento to BigCommerce.
Whether you are forced to re-platform from Magento 1 or just want to explore your options, there is no risk in trying BigCommerce.
