Which is the best platform for your  ecommerce business? At GRAYBOX, ecommerce is a bit of a sweet spot and we love getting this question because the answer really is – it depends on your particular business case. Different brands will lend themselves to various shopping experiences and every online retail business has different sales models and revenue. Our ecommerce team and our developers, strategists, designers, and business operations experts end up building in a wide variety of platforms so that sites truly meet the needs of the seller.

The good news is, our ecommerce team has prepared an analysis of the most important pro’s and con’s for these three platforms and has some recommendations for you in the form of a whitepaper download. In addition to this whitepaper, we’ve also made an awesome, exhaustive features list chart so that you can compare Magento 2 EnterpriseShopify Plus, and BigCommerce Enterprise side by side.

Insights and commentary in this whitepaper cover:

  • The Shopping Experience – how each platform varies in terms of design and browsing and what that means for your store
  • Pricing – a look at these platforms’ different pricing models and our recommendations on which works best for what kind of business

For a sneak peek at what’s included in the download, you can start reading below with the Catalog Organization section.
