so I've be perusing the forum reading advice regarding ecommerce choices. I was about to sign up with BigCommerce but, although I see it listed relatively consistently as one of the top choices, I never see it actually recommended.
My interest in it stems from its ability to utilize a hosted central database and access that database from multiple storefronts and or social media campaigns.
That said, I am starting with setting up a boutique storefront for my wifes pottery business to diversify it from Ebay. It is a very small business at this point and certainly does not require BigCommerce. My understanding is that I can populate her Ebay store from BigCommerce.
I see her store as the first step though and plan on experimenting with wide range of products utilizing the share database.
I've used WooCommerce on a project in a significant way but it was maybe 7 years ago and although I liked it, I found it was very time consuming to setup. I know I could do a central database on my own server but I am not a database guy and lack the time to become one.
So why do you not suggest BigCommerce? Am I off base in my perception?
