Seeking for the right e-commerce platform that fits your business requirements are important. WooCommerce vs. Shopify is a showdown between two e-commerce giants. Shopify powers over 800,000+ online stores, while WooCommerce claims to be the most popular e-commerce platform. But which is right for you? Let’s see:

Shopify is hosted. Hence, Shopify manages the software for you and provides you a lot of flexibility as well.

  4. The themes are plentiful and beautiful.
  5. Within a few minutes, Shopify launches your online store.
  6. Dropshipping is rather simple with Shopify.
  7. The support is the best in the business.

WooCommerce is self-hosted. In WooCommerce your store files are located on your server, and because its free, you can easily do modifications to your store as per your requirement.

  2. WordPress has a huge community online.
