What Makes Bigcommerce So Great?
Simply put, Bigcommerce is a comprehensive, on-demand platform that includes everything you need to successfully begin selling your products and services online. The service includes a virtual shopping cart, a feature-rich product catalog, a payment gateway with comprehensive shipping and tax calculators, easy-to-use marketing and SEO tools, Customer Relationship Management (CRM) features and powerful conversion and analytics tools. In addition to being feature-rich, Bigcommerce is also reliable with a 99.994% average up-time! Your store will always be available to your customer, no matter when they choose to shop online.
Social Media Networks
Bigcommerce also includes tools for marketing and selling through social media networks. You’ll be able to both market and sell your products directly through Facebook, build your presence through other prominent social media networks and even develop multimedia-rich RSS feeds for showcasing your product line!
Shopping Cart Mop Up
We’ve all found ourselves interrupted by “real life” when shopping online. How many times have you abandoned an online shopping cart, never to return? Bigcommerce has a solution with their abandoned cart saver! This premium tool can convert 15% of abandoned carts to completed sales! By automatically emailing your customers and encouraging them to complete their order, Bigcommerce will help you increase both your sales and your customer conversion rate.
Over the past few weeks we’ve spent a lot of time writing about the importance of implementing a mobile strategy for your business. Bigcommerce includes a fast, intuitive mobile-optimized website that works on almost all mobile devices. There is nothing that needs to be additionally designed or installed!
Last, but certainly not least, Bigcommerce provides an easy way to connect your online store with all current versions of QuickBooks! You’ll be able to conveniently sync your orders, products, inventory and more with your accounting software, making bookkeeping easier and less stressful.
How Secure Is Bigcommerce?
In addition to being comprehensive and reliable, Bigcommerce is also the most secure eCommerce platform available on the market today. With Enterprise-grade hosting, Bigcommerce uses SAS 70 Type II certified servers monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by a dedicated security team. With this bank-level security in place, you can rest assured knowing that your data and your customers’ data is safe and secure.
This All Sounds Great, But It’s Also Overwhelming. What Do I Do If I Need Assistance?
Bigcommerce has a number of support resources available. They have in-house support professionals available via phone, email, Twitter and web chat. But even if you decide to “do it yourself”, there is still a library of resources available including video tutorials and over 500 online articles!
If you are still unable to find a solution to your problem, Bigcommerce also provides a community forum where you can ask questions and discover solutions alongside other Bigcommerce customers and online merchants.
