More out-of-the-box features

Abandoned Cart Recovery, Coupons and Discounts, and Single-Page Checkout are only a few of the features that require extra cost and management on WooCommerce. Enjoy these features out-of-the-box with BigCommerce.

Scale without slowing down

Adding core features to WooCommerce requires plug-ins—leading to more complexity and lower site performance. Pair your WordPress front-end with a powerful, all-in-one platform that gives you everything you need to sell simply.

Security comes standard

BigCommerce stores come standard with Level 1 PCI compliance to make your site safe and secure. Spend less time worrying about PCI compliance and more time growing your business.

BigCommerce Success Stories

“We saw a drastic improvement in our site load times after migrating to BigCommerce. Our page-load times were close to six seconds, on average, with WooCommerce, and now we’re at around 1.2 seconds, which is an 80% improvement.”

Lower cost of ownership

Adding additional payment, catalogue management, and marketing features becomes costly and time consuming on WooCommerce. BigCommerce has built-in these features to help lower cost and complexity.

0% Transaction Fee

Unlike some competitors, we will never punish you with transaction fees for your choice of payment solution. Keep more of what you earn and choose the best-of-breed solution that’s right for your business.

“With BigCommerce, we can rest assured that we’re PCI-compliant 24/7/365. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate not having any compliance concerns whatsoever.”
