I’ve been shopping around for web-based ecommerce platforms. The two clear front runners are WooCommerce and Shopify.
Ultimately, both have advantages and disadvantages. For example, Shopify charges a monthly fee while WooCommerce is free*, but if you want to use their pre-made templates to sell your products you’ll need to pay a fee each time *(unless you code everything from scratch)*. But really it can come down to the features YOU desire.
My recommendation would be the focus on what YOU want your store to do, then research how that specific feature might be best delivered by either platform! Don’t let someone else plan out YOUR future business 😉 *tip* Start
