Big Cartel Overview
Big Cartel is the perfect shopping cart solution for small brand owners looking to get their shops up and running with minimal hassle, at an affordable price. Big Cartel comes with a free plan with a 5 product limit, but paid plans start at $9.99/mo. Unlike some other shopping cart platforms, Big Cartel does not take a percentage of each sale or charge any additional fees outside of the Paypal transaction fees that apply.
While Big Cartel does come standard with a few themes you can choose from, serious brand owners want to give their shops a professional appearance that meshes well with their brand identity. Hiring a professional web designer to create a custom design can cost several hundreds, if not several thousands, of dollars and you’ll need to wait a few weeks for the finished site design. But what if you need a high quality shop design and have a very limited budget?
