There are many shopping cart softwares. However Shopify and Bigcommerces are two leading tools now. This article provides a comparision between these tools.
That is important criteria to compare. Bigcommerce offers 3 plans and start from $29.95 for Silver Plan. While Shopify offers 4 plans and start from $14 for Starter Plan. Does it mean shopify is cheaper, in fact we can not comparison the Starter Plan of Shopify with Silver Plan of Bigcommerce. Because Starter plan is restricted for number of products. So we should compare from Basic plan with Silver Plan, the price is 29 and 29.95. It’s similar. However with offering the starter plan, it is very suitable with small shop that have a few products. So the shopify serves many more customers.
