Shopify vs WooCommerce vs Magento
Q1. Both Shopify Plus and Magento Community Version are aiming at enterprise-level companies, what is the difference between them?
The main difference between the two is that Magento is open-sourced, which makes it very flexible; while Shopify Plus is close-sourced, which makes it much easier to set up. If you want flexibility and full control over your store, then Magento will be a better choice, however, you need an in-house IT team to keep the site running and the site is going to take longer to be built. If you do not have that much time and budget, then Shopify Plus will be a better choice, since it requires less technical support and you can get extra functions easily through plug-and-play apps.
Q2. Can I code on Shopify?
Q3. Which platform has better security?
Shopify and Adobe Commerce Cloud come with the best security features. It provides SSL certificates and PCI level 1 service, while the remaining software solutions like WooCommerce require extensions, plugins or/and customization to reach the same level of security.
Q4. Can I migrate to other platforms?
Yes, you can always migrate to another platform if you think the platform you are currently using no longer suits your needs. However, the process can be very troublesome because it involves data migration of sensitive data, like customer and order data. Therefore, it is important to research the scalability of different platforms before starting your online business. This way, even if your business grows in the future, your site can still handle the business expansion and doesn’t need to care about switching to another platform. If you want to switch to Shopify, feel free to contact us.
