Started in 2009, BigCommerce has become one of the popular eCommerce platforms available online today. It offers plenty of built-in features that allow you to get your online business up and running in no time.

Features of BigCommerce:

These servers are located in BigCommerce’s secured data center, which employs security measures such as firewalls and network redundancy to prevent hacker attacks. Furthermore, your whole website, including your orders, products, photos and customer record, is back up automatically multiple times a day.

Use your own domain name – If you already have your own domain name, BigCommerce allows you to set up your eCommerce website using your own domain. You can even use a subdomain so that your eCommerce site is integrated into your existing website.

PCI compliant – BigCommerce is a PCI-compliant provider, which means that it meets all the requirements designed to ensure companies that process/store/transmit credit card information are doing so in a secure environment.  When you set up your online store with BigCommerce, your store is automatically PCI compliant.

Abandoned cart saver – Sometimes your customers add products to their shopping carts but never complete their orders. When this happens, BigCommerce’s abandoned cart saver, available to Gold/Platinum/Diamond users, sends a series of customizable emails to these potential customers to change their mind.
