Not BigCommerce but I get weekly emails from Shopping Cart Elite bigging themselves even though I never signed up for their mail.

Me too. The guy that writes that stuff seems half crazy to say the least.

I rarely sometimes get emails like that. The ones that really crack me up though are the phone calls from 'firms' saying they can host our site for $9/month.

Here is the email we received, it is addressed to "David" who is the president of our company. Ironically it was actually sent to our VP's email address:

Quote:

Hi David,

I was just on your site and I believe your store is still
running on X-Cart?

I work for Bigcommerce (an X-Cart competitor) and we
are a happy home for many
stores like yours who have outgrown
X-Cart.

If you have 15 minutes free today I would like to have a quick
phone chat with
you and see if we can make a migration from X-Cart to
Bigcommerce a serious
consideration for you.

Let me know a time that
works.

If you are booked out today you can play with a trial store at

This makes me laughing. It so embarrassing when I see people wanting to steal others business. BigCommerce = Interspire Shopping Cart but cloud, the one which took most of the ideas from Magento Community. Good job, I don't trust companies who promote their products comparing with others.

Unfortunately it's all business as usual in US. While in Europe and most of the World commercials cannot directly compare concurrent products (
the "unfair competition" is against the law) in US they are allowed.

It seems BigCommerce is going after everyone not using it to try them to switch.... The very fact that is only hosted solution is enough for me to not even look at it

It's quite easy actually. For instance go to:

http://www.register.com/

to see where your domain name is registered

Then go to:

http://who.godaddy.com/whoischeck.aspx?domain=UNCIONMUSIC.COM

to check details. There will be your email address, phone number, fax number and so on..
