BigCommerce is an open Ecommerce platform for merchants new, established, and enterprise. BigCommerce touts 100% uptime for the past 7 years, which is huge as any downtime really costs a merchant. And they have the highest level of security authenticated by Coalfire, a 3rd party security auditing company.
They aren’t a payment platform, they aren’t an email provider, instead they partner with over 1,000+ vetted and great providers in these spaces, from high-end rewards programs to Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) connectors. They have a world-class API that makes it enticing for app developers to build on their platform, as well as easy for merchants to bring data to and from their ERP, inventory management system, Customer Data Platform (CDP), or wherever your data needs to go.
They are working within over 150 different countries. All of their support is in-house and based out of Austin, Texas where they serve their merchants 24/7/365. You always get unlimited users with specific user access control for each user.
They have a themes marketplace with hundreds of different themes across dozens of different industries which are one time purchases to get you started on your own unique design and layout, or you can use their free theme Cornerstone Light.
All themes run on their own drag and drop page builder, which is more robust than other platforms and can make setup of your site doable without having to bring in a developer (even though in most cases you may also bring in the developer for any sort of custom work you may need).
What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
