I’ve worked with most carts and I think BigCommerce is over priced when it comes to a hosted platform. Also their customer service isn’t the best… wasn’t for me.

BUT if you had to choose hosted and you had a big company I would say go BigCommerce (my website is currently running on Interspire which was when they used to sell their full install module and it is ‘OK’). I’ve stuck with one of their generic templates but I have heavily modified it myself.

If you are a smallish business and just want to sell stuff online with no mucking about with inventory and walk in customers for processing go with Shopify. The fees structure is easy to understand. The great thing about Shopify is you can buy ‘apps’ for your website which will give it more functions. Try before you buy options.

Sign up for the free trials though and give them both a go.
