BigCommerce review

With over 95,000 live sites currently using the Bigcommerce system for selling items and processing payments online, there’s strong reason to believe that Bigcommerce provides a viable and powerful interface for your ecommerce needs. Our Bigcommerce Review covers all of the aspects of this ecommerce platform, from the features to the security and support.

There's more though: In early 2016, Bigcommerce underwent an incredibly drastic rebranding change, with a completely new brand structure, more integrations and plenty of new features for the users. In short, the company stated that the logo change is more reminiscent of what the platform is designed to do for users, referring to the upward trending chart logo. In addition, the company has shuffled around its website design in an attempt to provide easier access to information for all users.

The Ultimate CoreCommerce Ecommerce Review 2014

CoreCommerce review

Matt DeLong established the company in 2001. However it wasn’t fully launched as CoreCommerce until 2008. They offer an ecommerce shopping cart software that is completely web-based and easily allows you to launch an online store. Noteworthy clients include among others, Tendergrass Farms, Spark Living and The Poster List. Since their launch the company has powered more than 13,000 stores. While that might seem like a lot it is actually only 1/10 of other major competitors such as Shopify. We still feel the company is worth considering and here’s why.

2014 Key Ecommerce Trend: Pushing the Limits with Mobile

In the UK, a new eMarketer report shows that the key digital trends influencing the digital ecosystem this year are “Mobile Usage, Big Data and Ad-Buying Options”. In just one year (2012 -2013), visits to retail websites rose from 24.0% to 45.0%, with nearly half of the smartphone and tablet owners using these devices for research. A significant percentage made a purchase using them. Also, these devices rank very close to laptops and desktops when it comes to the first time users had seen and ad or marketing message about the product they bought.

According to IAB UK,  74% of the polled retailers had a mobile-optimized site, and half of them optimized their search functions for mobile, plus, they added a GPS store locator. However, not too many retailers offered contactless payment facilities, in-store Wi-Fi, or optimized their site for tablets.

Another interesting aspect is that when it comes to groceries, for instance, most UK web users would rather have their shopping delivered to their home, although some of them would have some suggestions regarding ordering, purchase and delivery.

It’s not easy to keep up with the complexity of shopper behavior, but it looks like UK retailers do their best to adapt to shopper preferences (digital and/or physical), to be flexible and surprising.
