Businessmen who want to start selling online don't have time for learning a technology and fighting with it to build a virtual storefront. No one never knows beforehand how successful their company will be and which ecommerce software would be the best for their business until they start. Choosing an online store builder that is not adapted to e-commerce as well as hiring a team of devs for launching a custom online store sometimes may turn out the biggest waste of time and money.
That's why ecommerce platforms are ideal for start-ups. On the one hand, the variety of shopping cart software, that enables you to enter the digital marketplace with your products not being an IT expert, is fascinating. And, on the other, how not to drown in a sea of different vendors of website software? Here is a brief information on 3dcart vs BigCommerce comparison and a product review of Getsocio.

|SSL||Free for all Getsocio users||Free only if you use 3dcart subdomain||Free only if you use BigCommerce subdomain|
|Shopping Cart technology||Included||Included||Included|

If you are not going to spend money on hiring an IT staff to build a site, the best recommendation would be using hosted ecommerce solutions like Getsocio, 3dcart or BigCommerce. 3dcart has limitations in number of products and visits to your site. BigCommerce will charge fees for extra sales.
Getsocio is a great alternative to BigCommerce and 3dCart as we don’t change our pricing when your business grows. Compared to 3dCart with Getsocio you can accurately estimate the costs. On the issue of tech support, in resolving all your problems with the site you get the assistance of professionals, not just from other store owners or enthusiasts on a forum, that are seeking the right answer on the FAQ.
