ProsCheap in costCheap in costExpensiveCheap in cost
ConsShopify is a SaaS platform that requires paid monthly apps and is also limiting in terms of core functionality. You may run out of things it can do and have to customize it which can get really costly because you will need to build a custom independent app in this case.It's a Wordpress plugin and not an eCommerce first platform, making it very weak for scaling to a large number of sales and complexity.Magento is a complicated platform that can require a hefty development budget to execute properly. This can lead to the platform being more costly than many companies expect.BigCommerce is not as customizable as Magento and WooCommerce – you only have a limited number of themes available with certain customizations; the cost of using the engine directly depends on the number of sales, so you cannot accurately calculate the long-term budget for a store (so if you have to choose between Big Commerce vs Shopify, it’d be better to choose the latter);

Conclusion

All of these eCommerce platforms have their own benefits, when some are great for small businesses and beginners, others work well for large scale businesses. Few of them are pocket friendly while some will need a huge budget on hand. Some will require developers, while on some platforms you can do the work yourself.

If you’re looking for an easy to use solution to build and grow your eCommerce store, look no further than Shopify. Shopify offer eCommerce store owners all the tools they need to manage their store without many barriers. Plus, their website builder is very robust and has the added benefit of paying a single entity for an end-to-end solution.

Shopify was built and designed by three Canadians who were just trying to build an eCommerce store. Instead, they built a platform that lets anybody build an awesome eCommerce empire.

Magento can be looked at more as an enterprise option where developers are available and money is not an issue.
