Magento vs BigCommerce: What are the differences?

Developers describe Magento as "Flexible eCommerce solutions, a vibrant extensions marketplace and an open global ecosystem". Magento Community Edition is perfect if you’re a developer who wants to build your own solution with flexible eCommerce technology. You can modify the core code and add a wide variety of features and functionality. On the other hand, BigCommerce is detailed as "Ecommerce platform which allows you to create an online store". It is a true all-in-one ecommerce platform with the power to grow your business & help you sell more. It empowers you to rise above complexity – and ultimately focus on optimizing your business for growth.

Magento and BigCommerce can be primarily classified as "Ecommerce" tools.

Some of the features offered by Magento are:

  • Analytics and Reporting
  • Product Browsing
  • Catalog Browsing

On the other hand, BigCommerce provides the following key features:

  • Manage your entire product catalog within the control panel
  • Automate your sales taxes with Avalara Avatax built-in, or use our custom tax tables
  • Enable your customers to initiate refunds or partial refunds through their account

Magento is an open source tool with 7.76K GitHub stars and 6.66K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Magento's open source repository on GitHub.
