Very good and getting better
Was tasked with implementing this plugin for an already successful BigC store. The client had a BigC store and two other WP content sites. They wanted a unified e-store + content site.
It wasn’t a perfect experience. BC4WP has some gaps in desired functionality, but they seem to be continually improviing the plugin. Developers from the WP/Woocommerce world will have to cope with learning some new approaches, but the basics you need for delivering a rich e-commerce + rich content experience are here, and it’s far easier to work with than the BigC backend CMS.
Bottom line: BC4WP opens up a world of rich content possibilities for existing BigC stores, and on that basis alone, it is worth serious consideration. For new stores, the reasons are a bit less compelling but still very worthwhile. You get all of the solidness of BigC’s back end … shipping, payment, analytics, with the rich front-end capabilities of WordPress and your favorite themes and plugins.
Big shout out to Topher in the BC4WP Slack community, who is a powerful champion for this plugin. He’s an excellent resource.
