Are you using WooCommerce, Easy Digital Downloads, or something else?
WooCommerce for me, however, I have been interested in taking a peek at BigCommerce lately.
Yeah BC is making a big push for WP sites.
I do not think there is a one-size-fits-all solution. It depends on what the project requirements are:
types of products, quantity of products, how fulfillment will be handled, etc.
My preference is to keep as much as possible in a centralized location, WooCommerce offers that. WC has a large community, a large assortment of ready and available plugins, and it is easy to hook into if you need to customize any of the functionality.
A 3rd party solution such as BigCommerce or Shopify could be good alternatives in some scenarios. If the requirements were for digital downloads only, then Easy Digital Downloads could be a good option.
Right. I just want to play with it so I know when & where to best recommend each solution. The idea of a SaaS solution for ecommerce in WordPress is pretty appealing to clients who do not want to keep a dev/agency on hand.
