If you're using BigCommerce to host your website, chances are you're either on what's called "BigCommerce v2", or "BigCommerce v3". These are the two most commonly used versions of BigCommerce; (BigCommerce v1 exists, but is much more rare) and while Modern Retail supports BigCommerce v2, we recommend upgrading to BigCommerce v3 for a variety of reasons, which we'll go over in this article.
Why Should I Upgrade?
There are two main reasons to upgrade to BigCommerce v3, if you haven't done so already. The first is the list of features exclusive to BigCommerce v3; some stand outs include Item Level Pricing (so you can individually price options for a gridded product, like charging more for a purple shirt than a red one), modifiers, BigCommerce's advanced promotional features, automatic promotion banners, and more.
The second main reason is more about thinking ahead; as time goes on, more and more apps, features, and tools will be designed specifically for BigCommerce v3, ignoring v2. Take, for example, BigCommerce v1: it's rare that new products are designed with it in mind.
