    I think both variants have pros and cons. Shopify is really good. It allows to choose from more than 100 unique store designs, letting you create the perfect shopping experience for your customers. Millions of people use it. Though it is not free, and there are individual fees on all payments you process. Also, its features are largely dependent on apps, and there is no native multilingual support. As for Woocommerce, it is a WordPress-based eCommerce solution. Of course, it is an absolute favorite amongst small to medium-sized businesses. But it has to be noted, the setup process can be quite a pain for inexperienced users. Unlike with Shopify, you won't have central support. And what about other platforms? I suggest checking a review on to find out the detail. Hope it helps!

    WooCommerce is the ecommerce plugin that turns any WordPress site into a powerful online store. It’s an open-source platform, and therefore free to install, making it ideal for cost-conscious users, but you’ll need to pay for things like hosting and security, however. Shopify is powerful, reliable, and easy to use, offering lovely templates and brilliant customer support. With Shopify, you’re paying a monthly premium for a solid platform – in fact, Shopify goes on to win today’s battle

    WooCommerce is the eCommerce extension for Wordpress, so if you already have a Wordpress site, it’s a good option. Unfortunately, the architecture of a Wordpress site is not custom-built for selling things, like Shopify is.
    If you have lots of products, need to process a lot of sales and need a fast, searchable catalogue, a platform like Shopify is best.

    These are the most important factors when choosing an eCommerce platform
    A) Pricing (the cost of hosting our store and the commission charged on transactions)
    B) Flexibility (how the platform scales as you grow and the plugins available)
    C) Ease of use (could my mum use it?)


    A) How Much Does Shopify Cost?
    See the Shopify Pricing Page for full details
    Set-up Fee: $0
    Monthly Cost: $29-299/m (depending on features)
    Commission on Sales: 2.4% – 2.9% + 30p
    B) Does Shopify scale?
    There’s a big jump in price between the “Advanced” package and “Shopify Plus”. On the other hand, you can manage your account on a rolling monthly basis.
    There are a large number of apps in the Shopify App Store. Currently, there are over 2000 Shopify Apps and plugins to help grow your store.
    C) Is Shopify Easy to use?

    This is the visual editor…
    It’s quite easy to use, once you get the hang of it.
    On the other hand, this is how you edit your source code (Liquid)…
    Not so user-friendly!


    A) How much does WooCommerce cost?

    See the WooCommerce Pricing Page for full details
    Monthly: Free + WordPress hosting
    Extras: SEO, Marketing and Security add-ons cost (on average) over £150 a year.
    B) Does WooCommerce scale?
    The pricing is flexible, with extensions that allow you to build up from the basic package to the deluxe option. There are over 900 themes built specifically for WooCommerce and over 6000 WordPress plugins with WooCommerce in the title.
    C) Is WooCommerce easy to use?
    This is what the WooCommerce editor looks like…
    It’s just the same as WordPress. So, if you’re used to blogging, it will probably suit you very well.

    WooCommerce vs Shopify both have the advantages as well as the disadvantages, so before we discuss the in-depth comparison of the two robust shopping carts, let’s quickly cover some basics and highlight what makes these platforms stand out.

    WooCommerce is an open-source eCommerce platform built for WordPress. Therefore, it allows you to leverage the most powerful content management system (CMS) and utilize it to run an online store. Due to its open-source, you can customize every aspect of your store and easily build custom extensions.

    In contrast, Shopify is a hosted eCommerce platform that helps you to create an online store easily without worrying about the technical knowledge, every aspect is included in the Shopify plan such as hosting, security, domain, etc. All you need to do is buying the Shopify package and then you can sell products immediately.

    And if you want to move from Shopify to WooCommerce or vice versa

    Overall, it will depend on your need. Goodluck!

    Shopify is an all-in-one eCommerce platform that makes it easy for you to create an online store, accept payments, and manage your inventory all from a single platform without ever worrying about the technical aspects of managing a website such as web hosting, security, caching, etc. And WooCommerce is an open-source eCommerce plugin built for WordPress. It allows you to leverage the most powerful content management system (CMS) and use it to run an online store. Because of the open-source nature, you can customize every aspect of your store and easily build custom extensions.

    WooCommerce is better than Shopify
