Growing with 3dcart vs. struggling with BigCommerce

3dcart: Ready to help you grow. Bigcommerce: Quick to penalize.

If you’re an online merchant looking to maintain control of your business and maximize profits, Bigcommerce may not be the best eCommerce solution for your online store. In addition to hefty monthly fees, Bigcommerce clients are penalized for going over their allotted order limit, and are restricted to certain plans based on online sales per year.

3dcart’s affordable plans are tailored for small and large businesses alike, and feature absolutely no order or total sales limits. We want you to succeed, and we’re not about to penalize you for your success with unexpected fees and limitations.

The real facts on 3dcart vs. BigCommerce

Tons of features and zero limits vs. fees, penalties, and lacking functionality

Out-of-box features

As a Bigcommerce client, expect to spend a sizeable sum supplementing your store with paid apps, plug-ins and services. Bigcommerce restricts many of their basic features to their higher-tiered plans, such as customer groups, abandoned cart tools, and unlimited API calls. Furthermore, Bigcommerce lacks support for FTP access, drop shipping, wait lists, back orders, and email. As a 3dcart merchant, you’ll have access to all of these features plus much more.

Responsive theme selection

Want to dazzle and captivate your visitors’ attention at first sight without putting a strain on your wallet? That might be an impossible feat as a Bigcommerce client, where you’ll have access to only 16 free themes, only 2 of which are responsive. 3dcart merchants have access to 100+ professionally designed, gorgeous responsive themes, more than half of which are available for free.

“Bigcommerce isn’t about helping small businesses succeed. Their customer support is a joke, and instead of trying to actually help their customers, they push people toward their paid apps and ‘affordable experts’ that cost close to $100/hour.”

Point of Sale System

If you’re looking to sell online, in-store, and on the go, your store requires a Point of Sale system – a feature Bigcommerce sorely lacks. The 3dcart Point of Sale system is available for free to all merchants, and will allow you to accept credit cards, cash, check, money order and more, anywhere, at anytime. Gain peace of mind knowing your orders are synced every 10 minutes and that all data is securely backed up in the cloud.

Bigcommerce: Limited payment options

Bigcommerce supports fewer than 50 payment gateways, leaving their merchants with little control over their online store.
