Easy and productive

My experience with Bluehost and BlueSky Pro has been very easy and productive. I had a few problems but they were easily fixed. I could not have done this on my own.

EXPENSIVE,they fall short in some features

If you plan to grow up your business, big commerce will charge you for your success. More sales, more charges. Another critical technical issue they have and they cannot resolve is the lack of drag and drop feature to sort it... More ems into each category, this is a KEY feature for stores with many items that need to be organized -displayed into different categories. in a fashion way. If you have an item that fits into 2 or more categories, the item will repeat the same position in those categories. cannot be arranged unless you start duplicating items. If you want to move up or down an item, you have to make a huge work on CSV format. Ridiculous. Another issue to take in the count is the lack of good apps, they do not offer the most popular. I think there are other good options out there before moving your e-commerce here and then face the issues. Once you grow up is hard to move. Less
Great Tech Support!

I know this because I call them nearly every day because that is the only way to get anything done. The user portal is WIDLY inconsistent. Sometimes buttons work, sometimes they don't. Sometimes they just completely disappear... More for a while.
I have been with them for over 10 years and they have been going downhill but as of a few months ago it's just been TERRIBLE. I hate that I just renewed with them, I wish I hadnt't
