When digital working became part of our daily routine, so did the phrase “remember to always save your work”.

We’ve all been there. You’re almost finished with that unusually lengthy project, when your cursor ceases to move and a feeling of regret rushes through your body. The deadline is only around the corner, and you’ve just lost hours of work… what now?

Despite the vast majority of people experiencing this, whether it be in college, university, or the workplace, we’ve found that many businesses never considered ‘saving’ their websites. After pouring years into a website, our natural response should be to back it up. Unfortunately, though, this is not the case and we’ve seen some disastrous results.

Thankfully, BigCommerce has a solution to this issue. An app appropriately named ‘Rewind‘ has been used by over 100,000 ecommerce stores for many years now. Read on to find out more about Rewind’s features, set-up process, and it’s pricing.

Rewind Backup’s Features

Rewind allows BigCommerce store owners to maintain a constant backup of their website’s precious assets. Here’s a list of everything that Rewind allows users to restore:

If you use Rewind, you can also conduct a bulk restore of a selection of items e.g. a full category, category or brand. We’ve found great comfort in knowing that if a bulk import is done, we have an application that can save us if anything were to go wrong.

Rewind Backup’s Pricing

Like many ecommerce applications, Rewind’s pricing is relative to how many sales your BigCommerce store generates.

Here’s their pricing list:

Pro Plan – $39 / month

  • Up to 600 orders / month
  • Multiple users
  • Back up anytime

Business Plan – $59 / month

  • Up to 1,000 order / month
  • Multi-store ready
