    If you HAD to choose between BigCommerce and Magento as a CMS for a small company, which would you choose and why?

    I'm familiar with Magento to a certain extent, but I haven't heard much about BigCommerce. What's its deal? Is it better than Magento in any capacity?

    Note: There will be 3000+ products, and cost isn't a big concern.

    Thanks in advance.

    BigCommerce or Shopify if you don't have development skills/patience
    Magento if you need a platform that will scale as you scale above 1MM in revenue/sales

    I have used Magneto and hate it. The programmers charge you so much for every single change and upgrades. If you can find something else I would go with that instead. That is just my personal opinion.
