Shopify and Woocommerce: What are their Differences?

Shopify versus Woo commerce

Ecommerce   Store

It’s  great to involve on your new ecommerce business with lots of big ideas. First step- we suggest to  focus on the most practical stage of your ecommerce business plan first.

For beginners, you really need a simple online store to sell your products. A basic store theme on a reputable platform like Shopify, Woocommerce or  Magento serve this purpose perfectly well.

Shopify and WooCommerce are two of the most popular ones,  and  we are  going to compare both platforms and their key functions,  by the end of this article you should  have a  much better idea which one is the best  platform  for  your ecommerce  business.

In this article, we are going to  point out Shopify and Woocommerce according to  following:

  • Ease  of use
  • Host  solution
  • Design
  • Pricing
  • Features
  • Support
  • Security

Easy of  Use

How easy is to build an e-store on each platform?

Shopify  is the best choice  here!   Shopify has all-in-one e-commerce platform,  it easy to  launch  a store  from  nothing  to a  fully functional store  ready to process  payments and  accept  online orders.

Shopify  provides more  slightly  clean and modern design.   The templates,  widgets make  easy  to set up a store, add  products, making many  visual variants,  user friendly shopping cart  solutions designed  for  major merchants  with very little  technical skills.

Simply and  direct, all  you need is to open an account at Shopify

Hit the signup button, go through a basic setup wizard, and you’re done.

The process is very straightforward, once you get through that initial wizard, you will get access to the main dashboard. It’s from there that we can create your new eCommerce store, add new products, and so on.

On the other hand, Woocommerce  isn’t easy of use and  straightforward as Shopify. 

Woocommerce  is an  open-source WordPress plugin and not a subscription-based platform like Shopify, which means that we need to handle two  or more configurations before we  can build an online store itself.

Basically, we need the following steps:

  •   Domain name
  •   Get a  web hosting account
  •   Install a  WordPress
  •   Install  a chosen theme  compatible with Woocommerce.

From there,  we  can start  to work on the configuration of the ecommerce store.  Unfortunately, these  steps require some level of skills in order to make  the online store operable.

Host Solution

WooCommerce and Shopify take two different approaches:

Woocommerce:

  • Domain name and hosting are not included.
  • SSL support-   we need to buy  a certificate, which includes basic security features to protect your store.
  • File  storage depends on the web hosting  provider.
