BigCommerce vs commercetools: Why businesses are making the switch

BigCommerce makes it simple for Enterprise brands of any size to adopt modern, API-first commerce — giving you the flexibility to create and control differentiated experiences quickly.

Lower TCO, More Commerce Functionality

While commercetools positions itself as a cost-effective solution, their total cost of ownership can be extremely high over time, since most features and integrations must be built from scratch. BigCommerce, however, takes care of the heavy lifting. As a business- and developer-friendly solution, BigCommerce offers core back-end commerce functionality, reducing the need for development resources spent on non-revenue generating activities and high operating costs, so you can focus on revenue-driving innovation and experiences.

Flexibility to Future-Proof Your Business

As an API-first platform — rather than API-only — Bigcommerce combines all of the benefits of a SaaS platform with the flexibility and extensibility to create custom integrations and functionality faster. By offering native functionality and best-in-class APIs, BigCommerce allows merchants to easily integrate their existing systems and future-proof their business, ensuring they can always support customers wherever they shop.

Greater Usability with Less Complexity

The downside of an API-only solution, like commercetools, is that most features and integrations must be built from scratch — which often means less control for marketing and business users. With out-of-the-box functionality and over 600 pre-built integrations, BigCommerce makes it easy for business users and technical users alike to quickly, easily and cost effectively make site changes.

Open Innovation with Speed to Market

With commercetools, setting up and maintaining a website is often an extensive process requiring heavy reliance on developers — which means slower time to market. BigCommerce comes with the native functionality needed to seize market opportunities and unleash new experiences at the speed of your business.
