For a small or medium-sized e-commerce business, having the right technology platform is crucial. So, if you want to adopt or transition to a new e-commerce platform, you need to be sure about your choice.

BigCommerce and WooCommerce are two popular platforms making the rounds. Both help hundreds of thousands of e-commerce companies build and manage their online store effectively. Which one should you go with? Here’s a little table with the pros of both.

While BigCommerce and WooCommerce have their advantages, the one you choose depends on your needs. From our experience, we find that BigCommerce is ideal for a fast-growing medium-sized business. Its large set of tools enables users to manage their storefront with ease and scale quickly. But if you are a company with a website, want to add a store-front, or are just finding your feet in the e-commerce business, WooCommerce as a WordPress plug-in is ideal for you. It lets you launch quickly and set your own pace.
