Kooomo - The average cost for brands to implement Kooomo as their eCommerce solution provider is €20-50k. There are no hosting fees, no annual licensing costs, and Kooomo operates a revenue-sharing model that varies from 0.5% - 3%. A system integrator isn’t required to set up your online store, therefore businesses save on initial development costs, as well as fees associated with further developing and customising your e-Shop over time through an agency or a dedicated team of developers. All of this is managed in-house.
BigCommerce - BigCommerce Enterprise plans are dependent on the merchant's sales figures, and support sales of $400k+ per year, based on a tiered pricing system across various levels of the platform. Custom development and design work are all at an extra cost to merchants. With that said the average implementation cost of BigCommerce is around €150k
Time to Market
Kooomo - The average migration timeline for Kooomo is approximately 1-3 months. This includes any development work that needs to be done as well as migration, customisation, and/or bespoke integrations.
BigCommerce - With BigCommerce, customers can expect a migration/launch timeline of approximately four months, depending on any custom development that needs to be completed.
Flexibility and Customisation
Kooomo - The Kooomo platform offers full-scale customisation and flexibility as integration with other systems is straightforward. Customised storefronts are possible from a design and UX perspective, and an ecosystem of over 200 partners allow retailers to integrate with third-party applications with little or no extra development work.
BigCommerce - As BigCommerce is a headless solution, front end capabilities are extremely flexible through APIs. With that comes the fact that the maintenance required to maintain a headless commerce-based store typically means requiring more resources, as well as a much higher ongoing development budget.
Kooomo - The Kooomo platform supports all languages, VAT rates, and currencies. Marketplace integration is also built directly into the platform, with over 60 pure-play and category-driven marketplaces available for users to quickly and easily launch their products into new regions.
BigCommerce - Merchants can trade in multiple geographic locations with BigCommerce, through a multi-store approach, utilising APIs to push out localised product information, storefronts, and checkouts.
