Shopify Vs. WooCommerce


Shopify and WooCommerce are both commonly used platforms in creating an online store. They offer the best options on how business owners and solopreneurs build an online store that will suit their brand.

But just like any other eCommerce platform, they have differences that made them unique yet offered the most reliable features that made them stand out among the competition. If you are looking for a complete package of apps and features for your online store, Shopify is the best for you. However, if you already built your online store in WordPress, WooCommerce will be a good option.

But rest assured that these two platforms will be beneficial for your business.

Key Differences Between Shopify and WooCommerce

  • Shopify offers lots of templates and is easy to navigate in creating an online store for your business. WooCommerce will give you the freedom to make your online store depending on your brand with customized templates.
  • Shopify has a monthly subscription amounting to $29, $79, and USD 299 depending on the features you want to have. The good thing about it is that it covers the annual fee for the website hosting and domain so that business owners will no longer think about it. Nonetheless, WooCommerce is free to install and can be cheaper than other eCommerce platforms though you need to pay for the WordPress website’s hosting.
  • Both Shopify and WooCommerce offer different payment options. But when using Shopify, shoppers are encouraged to have money on their Shopify Payment or be charged 2% for using other payment methods. WooCommerce is free to use any other third-party payment option without charging any amount.
