    which one would you prefer, i had worked with bigcommerce and i had to get somebody to help me with template, but they have good customer service, while i just started using wix and its easy to create website but i see their customer service, you have to email them to call you back, i think that sucks

    Tried both, prefer BigCommerce. If you're doing any sort of real sales volume WiX isn't going to fit the bill. WiX is for making a website, eCommerce is secondary. BigCommerce is built for eCommerce. Use the right tool for the job.

    Getting someone to help you with a template shouldn't be a deal breaker, chances are you'll need template help with any decent eCommerce system. You could try Shopify, they're slightly easier, but they also lack features like being able to send your items from your website to eBay. If you plan on using 3rd party marketplaces then it's far easier to have BigCommerce push and then sync your items, vs manually re-posting to other marketplaces. I sell something on eBay and it's magically in BigCommerce, one click and I get a shipping label from the thermal printer, slap it on the box, and wait for UPS. I add new products to BigCommerce and they'll appear on eBay, it's all synced automatically. -- Yes, it's harder to setup this way, but long term using the right tool for the job gets you the best results.

    Woocommerce is the most practical IMO. The easiest to set up, and does pretty much everything you need.
