Shopify Vs WordPress


Shopify Vs WordPress

There is no simple answer to this question. If you are a sales-focused businesses that wants an easy-to-use, full-featured and relatively automated e-commerce solution, the Shopify will work really well for you. WordPress takes a lot of getting used to, however, its the hands-down winner when it comes to flexibility.

Shopify is what’s known as a “dedicated e-commerce platform,” which means its focused on supporting businesses sell online. Everything about the platform is geared to help businesses efficiently run an online business. It helps startups and small businesses quickly build, launch with minimal effort.

The problem with Shopify is that you are pretty much stuck there. This may or may not be a bad thing. You will be stuck with transaction fees, monthly fees and a weak blogging apparatus.

WordPress is geared more to businesses wanting flexibility. It is a content management platform that can be turned into any type of website, and I mean any. You can expand this using various “plugins” that add all sorts of neat functionality.

However its versatility makes it more difficult to set up. There is a learning curve with WordPress, but he ultimate benefits are full control and ownership of your store.


With regards to design WordPress is the clear winner. Your only limit with regards to design is your imagination, plus WordPress themes and templates are way cheaper than Shopify.

Ecommerce Operations

The clear winner here is Shopify. You just can’t beat its ease of use with this aspect


Blogging is often the key to good rankings. WordPress is miles ahead of Shopify in the blogging arena. WordPress was built with blogging in mind, suffice to say it serves its original mission well.

Our pick is WordPress. Shopify is nice and all but WordPress is battletested and has stood the test of time. In addition to that, it is easy to find developers to extend WordPress and add more features. This helps keep costs down. Did we mention WordPress is free. You still have to pay for hosting but, at least you get to choose which host.
