Best platform for E-commerce: Shopify vs WordPress

SECURITY

The less risks taken, the less costly your operations. You are responsible for the privacy of your customers information, including personal and financial data. Because of all the repercussions involved with overlooked security, we've started the competition here.

Shopify is entirely built on their own servers. This allows Shopify a level of control regarding what goes into their server. All files (themes, images, data) are uploaded to Shopify servers and maintained by their company daily.

Secondly, Shopify automatically encrypts all it’s pages. Shopify provides a free SSL certificate and serves the page under the https:// URL.

Note, SSL Certificates usually costs between $50 – $300 per year, so this is a significant cost savings to Shopify users.

DESIGN

The way your product is presented online can directly impact sales conversions. More than half of your potential customers will be introduced to your brand through your website and social media pages.

Objectively speaking, Shopify could expand it’s theme choice and develop more builder options that can create custom layouts. 2018 saw better available designs but the truth is this is not Shopify’s main focus right now.

Shopify’s main focus is to build sitesĀ that can connect with other sites. Shopify spends more of its efforts expanding partnerships, having recently created an eBay sales channel.

This is not to say their designs are poor, in fact, they include some of the best practices in web design. However, they don’t have as large a developer community as WP, leading to less choices.

APIs

There are many APIs available that can streamline the operations of an e-commerce site. Examples include connecting your Shopify site to sites like Facebook, eBay or services like Quickbooks and Messenger.

PLUGINS

Additional functions or styles can be obtained by installing plugins to your site.

WordPress was built more than a decade before Shopify so it enjoys the benefits of a mature developer community. Unlike Shopify, it’s plugin options are saturated with choices that are often free to use and open-source. As long as your developer knows how these plugins work with the your site’s technology stack, they can offer a significant boost to user experience.

DOCUMENTATION

Documentation on how to use each platform is as important as the tool itself. A strong community of developer knowledge can provide faster, more robust development, while poor documentation leads to less functional code.
