What is BigCommerce for WordPress?

BigCommerce or WooCommerce?

WooCommerce is a widely used WordPress plugin on the international market, whereas the BigCommerce plugin is still relatively unknown in this country. The concepts of both plugins are completely different and plausibly explain the advantages and disadvantages of both e-commerce solutions. WooCommerce is a plugin that completely integrates the e-commerce functionality into WordPress. The catalog and checkout use the same resources as WordPress. The BigCommerce plugin synchronizes the catalog with WordPress and creates products, categories and manufacturers as custom post types - the checkout is implemented as a headless function via the BigCommerce API.

Security and maintenance
WooCommerce requires many additional plugins, which makes the installation error-prone and increases the maintenance effort.
BigCommerce offers the entire functionality via a single WordPress plugin and also a powerful backend with many convenient functions.
WooCommerce is free of charge, but the follow-up costs due to additionally required plugins and server adjustments are difficult to estimate.
BigCommerce tariffs start at €29.90 per month. Many tools are included right from the start and unexpected server scaling costs are not to be expected.
There are countless themes and plugins for WooCommerce. With patience and a little technical expertise, WooCommerce can be adapted to your own ideas almost at will.
The possibilities to customize the BigCommerce plugin are limited, unless you modify the open source code. Then there are no limits to customization.

Omni-channel with BigCommerce

If you sell via several WordPress websites, the products are stored centrally in BigCommerce and most of the settings are made in BigCommerce. Each WordPress site represents an additional sales channel. This means that different sales channels such as a BigCommerce storefront, WordPress online stores, the Google Merchant Center, a Facebook store, Instagram, Amazon and eBay can be operated in parallel.

BigCommerce far exceeds the functionality of other e-commerce WordPress plugins and supports complex catalogs with up to 600 variants per product.
