Magento Vs Woocommerce Vs Shopify

Ecommerce being the fastest growing industry, in the global ecosystem has made entry of many
solution provider or content management service providers in the domain. This has given merchants a lot of freedom to choose from, based on their requirements. But at the same time, has made it a little difficult as these entire look and sound almost the same. There are 3 major content management service
providers in the market currently:

• Woocommerce for Wordpress

• Magento Ecommerce

• Shopify Ecommerce

We are trying to analyze and compare the strengths and weakness of each platform which can help the merchants to take a informed decision while choosing the most suitable content management service.

Customization: Magento gains the first place in this feature. It has excellent customizable templates and themes followed by Woocommerce. Shopify has a very limited template library and hence is at third place.

Features: Magento comes with power packed features which are way beyond any of its competitors.
Its competitors are yet to mature in the features to be able to compete with Magento.Woocommerce
R&D is working hard to work on their features in order to compete with Magento. Shopify in the same way struggling hard for its features.

API and Extensions: Magento provides an excellent support to API's and extensions. It allows third
party extensions also. Woocommerce allows limited API's and extensions integration which is almost
same as Shopify.

Suitability: Magento although most suitable for big business but has different versions which suits the need of almost all business types, small or big. Woocommerce and Shopify are most suitable for new,small and medium size businesses.

Support: Magento provides an effective international support followed by Shopify and then

Cost: All three have free versions also available with additional features available at a cost. Magento
being the most expensive among these three as it also involves the development cost.               

Set Uptime: Shopify is apt for merchants who want a fast ecommerce site for themselves, as the set up time for shopify is minimal. Magento setup is a little time consuming as it needs custom development and hence deployment of web developers.

Conclusion: All three are unique in their own ways, yet Magento is clearly a winner as it allows high
level of customization as compared to its competition. Its features like API and extension integration
makes it more apt for businesses looking for scalability and high level of operations. Although it takes a longer time to setup, but its incomparable features gives it an edge over the others.
