For those of you who are wondering, here are some of the similarities and differences of BigCommerce and Volusion:


Both BigCommerce and Volusion offers an easy-to-design online store to its clients. They have template designs and accessible menu options. More tech savvy users can also access the HTML/CSS codes on both e-commerce software.

However, in terms of template designs, BigCommerce offers more templates to choose from and has an easy to use drag-and-drop functionality for added designing features, and Volusion’s premium templates are much pricier.

Added Features

Both e-commerce platforms offer marketing for its users, including providing Facebook storefront, discounts and coupons. Both also have a mobile commerce feature.

BigCommerce offers an abandoned shopping cart feature that lets users get notified of the recent products it placed on the shopping cart and did not go through the purchase part. This is a feature we can only find in BigCommerce and not in Volusion.

This is an advantage for BigCommerce users as this attracts customers to go back to their shopping carts and complete the purchase, or the opportunity to look into the business’ products again for a potential added purchase.
