Shopify Vs WooCommerce - Which one is better


Jun 25, 2020
Shopify Vs WooCommerce is a long-going debate because both of them are popular and powerful enough to run your eCommerce business without any interruptions. Before selecting one of these platforms, do keep in mind that both of them have some limitations and opting for them depends on your business requirements and operating models.

For Example,
Shopify is a self-hosted solution so, you don't need to worry about the performance, hosting, and development. But it can't be customized and charges a monthly fee.

While, WooCommerce is easier to customize and integrate with other systems via API. But, it requires maintenance and you need to invest in good hosting.

I have also written a detailed comparison between WooCommerce Vs Shopify that can help you in choosing one of them.

Shopify in all honesty, is like an undisputed giant in the modern ecommerce industry. The platform is extremely preferable for people with the ambition of seeing their online shops take off and they could buy themselves a private jet in future. With side by side comparison though, the picture gets a bit more clear (in this case, Woocoomerce) and major talking points are discussed below-

Woocommerce: Perhaps one of the largest and renowned platforms that are out there, Woocommerce has over 500,000 online centers for servicing you. It is free, open source, provides a host of WordPress plugins and complete WordPress integration. Though there is no hosting here and you have to pay a fee to acquire the add on services, the software makes up for the issue with its simplistic setup process and large support network.

Shopify and woocommerce both are providing great value to the ecommerce clients and are undisputed giants

WooCommerce offers more pricing flexibility than Shopify, which has defined prices. The monthly cost of Shopify ranges from $29 to $299. As you upgrade, you have access to more sophisticated tools, such as professional reports. Although WooCommerce is free, there are other expenses such as hosting, a domain name, and security.

Shopify is the most popular eCommerce platform on the market. It has been around for over a decade and it continues to grow in popularity. Shopify is also known as an all-in-one solution that allows you to build your online store without having any technical knowledge of coding or programming.

WooCommerce, on the other hand, was launched by WordPress in 2011. Since then, WooCommerce has become one of the most widely used eCommerce platforms available today. The main reason why this platform became so popular is that it’s compatible with more than 70% of all websites out there – including WordPress sites!
