At the beginning Magento platform version 1.0 was used for Wooly Organic e-store, which was out of date. It’s updates impacted the store’s visual side, and after each update technical programming was necessary to correct the issues that appeared with them. It was impossible to introduce anything new, and also adding things damaged web page even more.
Therefore, the aim was new and modern web page, which has simple administration properties and is very easy to use. That way we came to BigCommerce as the solution.
Wooly Organic got new design. As the base we used a ready made theme to which we added customized web design for separate web pages according to the needs of a client.

Magento vs BigCommerce
Comparing Magento with BigCommerce, Magento differs with being an open source platform which means that you have an access to its web store code. That gives you a total freedom to make enhancements and plugins for the platform. That way you have all control over your Magento’s online store – its design and functionality. But to do so, you must be highly skilled in programming to manage all your wants and needs or to own an IT team to create your website which can turn into a very expensive cooperation.
On the contrary BigCommerce is a cloud based solution, which means that it takes care of setting up and hosting your web store. There you can choose a pre-built and customizable themes to adjust it to your needs without extra help from outsourced IT team. Thus, you can concentrate on your business and rely on BigCommerce to do the rest of the work, as security, updates and user friendly web store administration system for you to manage your products on web store.
