    Starting an ecommerce store, which platform to choose?

    I am starting an online store for selling electronic items, like mobile and computer accessories. My store will contain around 200 products. Should I go with magento or Woocommerce? I have selected these two platforms because of community and customization options. However, Magento is not that easy to setup. WooCommerce is easy to setup but I have heard it has performance issues.

    Just my two cents, but I'd go for Magento. I think the summary of the two you mentioned is fair enough, so it's more of a case of strategy. In my opinion, you're better off spending a little more time and effort on setup with Magento because it will worth it for long-term stability.

    Hello Dear,

    Woo-Commerce by WordPress is a good choice for building a single store at it free & and there are various plugins easily available for it some are free and some paid. But if you want a full-fledged multivendor e-commerce store that is also SEO & mobile ready, Yo!kart is certainly the best choice, as it is an off the shelf software that comes just at $250. https://www.inc.com/bill-carmody/top...-for-2017.html

    If it is a DIY project then go for Woocommerce. Very easy to set up and start selling. Otherwise get a developer and create a magento store.

    WooCommerce is one of the coolest stores to be used on setting up an Online Store on WordPress. Shopify is also in the race with them but WordPress is far ahead.

    Hey, been in ecommerce for a couple of years already and from my personal experience I'd recommend Shopify as it's the most user-friendly and intuitive platform. I'd say if someone's just starting up, it's a way to go.
    Also, there's plenty of documentation available so setting up anything is quite easy. If you're in Australia and struggling with setting up taxes for example (like me), there's this tax guide for shopify stores in Australia. Might be helpful for someone.
    Best,
    Don
