LemonStand has one of the best names in the ecommerce market, and the company also has the powerful platform to go with it. They have released various new updates, so we decided to give the platform a fresh new start from our initial review.
Up until now, Squarespace was only a SaaS based content management system (CMS) which offered a designer-friendly website builder, blogging platform and hosting service. Now they’ve dived into the world of ecommerce with Squarespace Commerce.
That's why I felt that it's time to explore the system with an in-depth Squarespace Commerce review.
Squarespace was founded by Anthony Casalena in 2004 and has been slowly adding updates over the years. The biggest update was in July 2012 when they launched Squarespace 6 which added portfolio templates, responsive designs and opened way more control up for developers.
But this isn’t about Squarespace, this review is about Squarespace Commerce. Some of you may not know this, but people with Squarespace sites have always been able to sell online simply by adding something like PayPal or Ecwid. But that wasn’t ideal.
So now, Squarespace offers users the option of selling online.

Read this 3dcart review to see why this company is regarded as one of the top ecommerce platforms.
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.
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.
Founded by Matt Wigham in 2005, Big Cartel sets itself apart from other commerce solutions by specifically targeting artists looking for easy solutions to sell their products online. The company has placed a great emphasis on making their platform as easy as possible, while they provide all the necessary features to operate your own online store the features remain pretty basic. Today the company hosts more than 250,000 stores, with artists from around the globe run most of these shops. If you are just looking to sell a few products online and don't mind the basic features (some sellers had to switch to a more powerful platforms as you can see in our Shopify reviews) then perhaps Big Cartel is the right fit for you, read on to find out more.
Ed Sturrock, Stefan Barlow and Charlie Cooper established AmeriCommerce in 2005. Whether you are looking to open one ecommerce outlet or multiple, the company has the tools to get your started selling your goods. Famous clients include huge companies such as Kellogg’s, USA Hockey and World Series of Poker. The company powers more than 5,000 retailers, which compared with other competitors such as Bigcommerce or Shopify this seems like a very small number. However, I still feel the company has something to offer for those looking to start their own online store.
