Has anyone made the switch from Bigcommerce to Magento recently? Any Regrets? Any loss in sales? Any tips on switching over?
I have been struggling with Bigcommerce for several years now. I understand that Magento CE is going to take a lot more work on my end, which I am ok with, especially upfront.
My issue is that Bigcommerce seems to spend more time making their control panel look good that changing some things that many of us have asked for and they have promised for years. I would rather have more control over things. I realize there is a big learning curve, but I am confident I can find the resources I need online and through here.
Product options are probably the biggest issue for me right now. BigCommerce product options are very cumbersome. It takes way to long to add them to a product. For a lot of my items, it would be better to have a "Parent/Child" Relationship. That appears to be what is available in Magento 2 with configurable and simple products.
Thanks for the feedback. I really appreciate it. I am planning to go ahead with the transition. I figured I will take some time and update all my pictures and a few of my descriptions while I am at it before I go live. Have you ever tried one of those extensions that will move it all over from bigcommerce for you? I saw there is one for regular magento, but I didn't see anything for Magento 2.x
