Shopify is a very user-friendly platform and you don’t need any web development skills to navigate it. The Shopify templates are mobile responsive making is simpler and quicker for customers to shop your items using their smart devices. There are some great store management features including email templates, customer profiles, refunds, and order fulfillment which allow sellers to learn more about their customers and their shopping behavior.
Magento is a huge ecommerce platform that offers some great features, however, they require investing a lot of time and effort to learn. Magento users are expected to be skillful and tech-savvy, especially if they plan on customizing the store by themselves. Magento offers an option to hire a developer to customize the store for you, however, that can get pricey.
Shopify Plus offers 14-day free trial before buying the software. Entering any credit card information is not necessary. All you need to enter is your email. Magento, on the other side, not only doesn’t offer a free trial but the website is not transparent about the features or the prices without talking to a representative or specialist first. You have to schedule a demo and discuss the prices.
This can be a problem, especially if this is your first time selling your items online. You need to try something first and then decide to buy it. Right?
Depending on which platform to use to set up your online store depends on the size of your business, the features, and budget. You need to gather your team and together decide what is best for your business. Both platforms have their pros and cons and it is important to try out the platforms or consult with a representative from Shopify and Magento before making a final choice.
