  • I would absolutely recommend Big cartel! It has been a very simple interface to use, great customer service, and it allows me to do the type of selling of my artwork that I would like on my terms. I haven't had any issues and have enjoyed using it so far.

  • So far I love it. Ive heard good things about squarespace, but I'm not very savvy with website building, which is why Bigcartel is a breeze for me. Their user interface is very easy. Their help staff gets back to you asap. I like the clean look with not much effort, and it's still very customizable.

  • we don't recommend it...you must add lots of html tweaks to do that, and in any case it is a bit limited. They don't have extra gallery, carousel slides, hide or show pages preferences, and so on...

  • for me it great. I've never had a computer before I had the website. A friend actually set up the technical stuff. But the day to day is easy for a computer idiot like me. They get back to your questions in less than a hour. Most of the time in 10 minutes. Hey for 20 bucks a month I figured, it would be a first step. Get something fancy, later. It's worked out, it's all I need.

  • It's hard to get it to be discovered on google because the coding is hidden and not really showing a lot of word matches. But it is working for a sales site just fine, I Brand everything going out the door with the website address and I have a large following from EBay.

  • we would recommend Big Cartel with out reservations. We have found it quite easy to build our site (we have little computing experience). Those who administer the site have been very helpful along the way and have assisted us when we were first building our store. The monthly fee, $9.99, is just what we can afford considering our sales.

  • I’d recommend big cartel. Easy interface , straight forward pricing, attractive content and helpful emails occasionally from the company. On the other hand I just recently deleted 1&1 for another company I own and it was the opposite from all of the above. Even deleting and canceling the contract took months for them to get things right on their end.

  • I would definitely recommend using Big Cartel. They have a lot of ready made layouts that are really easy to use (especially for people like me who have zero knowledge in website building). And for people with knowledge of writing code etc there is the option to use those skills and make your big cartel site look exactly how you want it. Their customer service is great, and there are different account options, one of which is completely free. You pay monthly ( the amount depends on which type of account you have ) but they take zero commission from your sales which is great!

  • We’ve been using BigCartel since 2010 and have been very content with their shopping cart and ability to easily customize our store and portfolio. They have user friendly tips online to help with any changes that need to be made, and make it easy for any user to learn, even if the user might not be as tech savvy as others. They offer really good API integrations with other companies such as MailChimp, Google Analytics, etc... to easily track our web presence and marketing campaigns.

  • it’s easy to use for people like me know don’t know how to set up their own website but it really would probably depend what your selling and how you promote it to know weather it’s worth it for you. I haven’t sold anything off it yet but I’m still setting it up before I promote it

  • Big Cartel is very user friendly and easy to set up a payment option. Kind of limited in the design aspect of your page. Templates are nice but no real customization.

  • Yes , bigcartel is pretty simple and straight to the point as far as being user friendly ! I use big cartel for a shopping site , but they are used for so many other things I’ve seen ! I’ve never heard or seen any bad reviews on bigcartel! So , i would most definitely recommend it especially for beginners, it’s super easy !

  • I think I would recommend it for users that don't have much HTML & CSS Knowledge, and want to start their own *small* shop. For bigger sales you definitely should choose another shop system, that offers all the legal and juristic stuff with it.

  • I’am using BigCartel as a ecommerce for my brand thecloudartist on Instagram, i really like how easy the bigcartel works and when you using a paid subscription its very easy to make it your own.

  • It’s fine. It’s easy to use be I think I’m going to be switching to Shopify. I have another website through them and it’s so much better aesthetically.

  • There are limitations to its form and templates. You can only list one variation on the item, such as size...but not color. You must direct the customer to list the other variables in a note, which is problematic as people, generally, do not read, or do not read thoroughly.

    Also, the SEO is weak.

  • I prefer selling in etsy. I really wouldn’t recommend Big Cartel as a Portfolio site just because there are certain things I can’t bypass, like pricing my pieces. I would rather not have a price listed on the items that are sold out/not for sale.

  • I would recommend Big Cartel. I have used them for several years and I haven't had any problems with them. I don't do a significant amount of business through the site so I'm not the best person to ask in regards to comparing features with other options as I keep everything fairly minimal. However I have found it very easy to use on my own and make changes on my own.

  • I find it to be a great webhosting service. It is very simple to use and their customer service is incredible. They are always quick to answer any questions or help solve any problems that you may have. Also, they dont have a ton of extra fees that I saw included on other webhosting services, you simply pay your monthly bill for the plan that you choose and that’s it.

  • I actually really like Big Cartel. It is sort of my portfolio, as I mainly use it for selling a limited amount of my silver gelatin prints; but I am able to add pages and I’ve considered having a separate page for a more concise and curated set of photos for people to browse my work.

    I’ve used Squarespace before (which was also good and super customizable) but at the time of starting my print shop I wanted something really flexible and for $10/mo I could use my own domain + have all of these features, and able to downgrade or upgrade at any time. Squarespace was going to cost closer to $16/mo, unless I committed to paying for a full year (~$12/mo).

  • I would recommend it, but I guest it just wasn't right for my products and eventually I outgrew the functionality, I have kept it because I did not want to loose the traffic and I have not created a redirection.

    It would be perfect for a portfolio style brand, but I have too many options for each product that I needed a more product based system.

  • Yes have been using Big Cartel for a long time now. I find it brilliant and so easy to use. I'm technologically useless and it's nice to be able to manage it myself rather than relying on a techie. And very affordable with great support.

  • We just switched to Shopify, we weren't happy about Big Cartel's reports.

  • I like Big Cartel well enough but will probably find a better solution moving forward. They do not have a very solid way of tracking orders/handling customer interaction.

    The basic layout of how you use their store isn't very intuitive compared to what I've seen online. But for now we're just trying to keep everything in one place.

  • Big Cartel is an easy to use platform. However, they just have selected templates you can choose from which doesn’t give you much control over the interface.
