Online store

With Bigcommerce, you can create an online store that is both mobile-friendly and customer-friendly, with plenty of features to encourage your customers to purchase products, from reviews to loyalty program incentives. It also has one of the most flexible, automated return systems out there. Every aspect of the return system is customizable, including disabling returns whenever you want. You can offer such return options as store credit, replacement or refund.

Email marketing

Bigcommerce also features email-marketing capabilities and creates a Facebook store for your online business. In addition, your customers can share your products on social media. If you want an Amazon or eBay store, however, you'll need to purchase an upgraded plan.

Within Bigcommerce, you can protect your customers with 128-bit SSL certificate support, hardware firewalls, denial-of-service protection, a network-intrusion detection system, and complete disaster and recovery support.
