Interspire is one of the most popular and welcomed licensed shopping cart software written in PHP. There are over 50K online stores running using the interspire platform. The best documentation,support, clean code and a set of 100 themes shipped with the out of the box shopping cart makes interspire the choice for the mid-large online stores. Recently, with the rise of SaaS applications, Interspire has launched a new service called BigCommerce, which is same as Interspire shopping cart, but hosted on Interspire's servers. With BigCommerce anyone can quickly and easily create their own online store without any technical experience. Unique features such as Drag & Drop Design Mode make it easy to completely customize the look and layout of your store using just your mouse. BigCommerce has built-in search engine optimization features which help your online store rank at the top of all major search engines including Google and Yahoo. BigCommerce has been fantastic in terms of usability and features. It enabled us to design and develop a custom site that embodies the history and physical store in New York. The order system makes it easy for staff to process and ship orders out and keep track of what's going on. Although, BigCommerce have all these powerful features, quite a few people are moving their ecommerce stores from BigCommerce to licensed interspire installations on their own servers. The primary cause for this is because of the fact that, bespoke development work is not an option on BigCommerce as it is a fully hosted solution. BigCommerce restricts our access to the code base and we are no way able to add our custom shipping, payment methods. We are also not permitted to modify the code to match our custom requirements. In such scenarios, store owners tend to use Interspire Shopping Cart licensed version to retain all the powers of BigCommerce and utilize the flexibility of modifying the code. There are many store owners start their online stores with BigCommerce and migrate their stores from BigCommerce to Interspire as they grow. We can easily migrate the follwoing elements from BigCommerce shopping carts to Interspire.
