Magento: CE

For the free version of Magento compared to a paid version of Bigcommerce, Magento didn’t lose too horribly bad. If this is what you are thinking then I would urge you to take a look at the eCommerce software chart to compare these two further against the others and you will see how far apart they actually are. If this is your venture into creating an eCommerce site I would definitely recommend opting for the extra support. Not only will it help you immensely but it will save your hours of Googling the issues you might face or try to troubleshoot alone.
