"The reason for my poor rating of BigCommerce's hosted cart is their customer service. Basically it's Russian Roulette. Depending on which "support ninja" you get the service can be great or it can suck. This ruins what otherwise could be a good cart. It's not perfect but it is relatively easy to learn the basics and if the support were better it would make the whole job easier."

"Decent features but impossible to contact anyone regarding technical questions while test driving this hosted solution. This is in stark contrast to competitors like 3DCart & PinnacleCart who were eager to engage in live chat or quickly returned emails to a potential customer who had a technical question not answered in the support material. The only people you're able to talk to at BC are sales associates. Read as many forums as you can because I believe the majority of 'expert reviews' out there are from people looking for a referral paycheck from BC. "
