Cloudswave Score for Big Cartel
Rating based on 12 Critic Reviews
Brett Nordquist, on Site Builder Report
If you have a dozen T-shirt designs you’d like to sell online, Big Cartel could handle it. If you wanted to migrate your Etsy store over to your own online store, then Big Cartel might be a good choice. I found myself liking it the more I used it because it’s well designed and doesn’t flood my senses with needless complexity.
This is a well-designed, simple-to-use ecommerce builder that will work well for small stores. While its competition often overwhelms with features and settings, Big Cartel takes the opposite approach providing the basics wrapped in a product that’s actually enjoyable to use

One of the biggest plusses Big Cartel has is the fact that you can set up a store without paying a dime, albeit a small shop with only five products but still free. Even if you do decide that selling five products just isn’t enough the pricing plans offered are still very affordable.
Big Cartel might not offer all the features of bigger competitors, but truthfully it feels as if they are not catering towards the large multibillion-dollar corporate clients but rather have found a comfortable niche in the arts and crafts community, some of them graduating from Etsy to a solo career.

If you're an artist, musician, or other creative craftsperson that wants to set up an online store as quickly and as cheaply as possible, Big Cartel is absolutely the right choice. Unlike other shopping cart platforms, very small sellers can set up a 5 product store for $0 and will never incur any costs unless you decide to add more products. Even then, the payment levels are extremely affordable.

Big Cartel is very cheap and extremely simple to use. If you’re a very small-time retailer looking for the basics, this could very well be your solution. Big Cartel will offer a very basic and user-friendly experience, but it will also be extremely limiting.

To summarize my Big Cartel review Big cartel is an amazing deal for $9.99 a month, with some powerful features. It’s super simple and very intuitive but it is missing some things that other e-commerce systems have. I would recommend it to any company starting out and paired with a wordpress site you will have the best of both worlds.

Big Cartel is, like they claim, easy to use, customizable, and awesome. We’re very happy. If you want to build a custom store to sell your stuff in one week, you can’t go wrong.

Big Cartel is incredibly clean, very cheap and so simple to use I defy anyone to get lost. They have done an excellent job of creating a shopping cart for small e-retailers and deserve to be commended for it.

What we liked:
• Customize your online store as much, or as little, as you’d like
• Easy to let customers buy gift certificates to your online store
• Dashboard lists referral sites so you know where your customers are coming from
• Ability to organize products by most and least viewed
What we didn’t like:
• Users cannot offer more than 100 products for sale at any given time
• We would like to see more payment options such as Google Checkout, Amazon Payments, or possibly Authorize.net
From T-Shirt Magazine
Big Cartel is best suited for startup businesses looking for a shopping cart platform that’s easy to manage, contains simple, yet essential, features, and allows for total design customization.
From Shopping Cart Market
Although it doesn’t have some of the high-powered features you can get elsewhere, Big Cartel’s combination of affordability and ease of use makes it a great choice for ecommerce site operators who intend to sell 100 products or less.
