    If you're looking for more customization options with full control to overall things go with Wordpress with Woocommerce.

    But if you were to pick from Shopify or Magento, I will suggest you Shopify, Magento will just create more trouble for you with the time goes.

    Although, both the platforms have their own limitation, where are on other side, as compare to these two, Wordpress with Woocomerce will provide you more surface on other things as well which can't be able to do so on either of those platforms.

    At the end, the choice is yours, Good Luck!

    Generally speaking, I would suggest Shopify from those two, but it's hard to say without knowing a bit more about what you are selling.

    I wouldn't touch Magento unless you have the budget - Magento support is expensive and the software is a beast. E.g. the recent Magento 1 to 2 upgrades have meant big expense for lots of companies needing support to complete the upgrade.

    In comparison, Shopify is a managed solution, so you can focus on running the store, not dealing with technical issues. But there are some drawback - less payment gateway, less customisation without investing in additional apps. Also, if you are looking to internationalise the site in the future then Magenta supports multi currency and multi language.

    Hope that is helful!

    Shopify. Really best for simple setups and those who are just starting up in Ecommerce. But of course, this depends on your needs.

    Perhaps selling locally at first then limiting your sales to a few countries, this should be fine. Or if you plan on going bigger at a later date, then Magento could be better for you, albeit quite more complicated to use.

    Magneto is really an enterprise level product - with all the bells and whistles that come with that, but also the complications... Shopify is a simple product at a good price and a great starting point.

    I've done this in the past and it took around an hour to set up on a nice simple theme which looked clean and branded.

    As per my requirement, Shopify is best suitable for eCommerce website development. Shopify pricing is exceptionally clear and straightforward.
    Shopify is tied in with delivering you a single, out-of-the-box solution with only a few pricing packages.

    Think if you are looking for customization I would suggest Shopify as some Shopify themes have become very flexible with customization.

    The answer is it depends on your needs and experience. If you have experience with coding and web development, Magento should be a great option for you as you can build a store exactly how you see fit without unnecessary built-in features.

    On the other hand, if you are an eCommerce newbie, I’d recommend you to stick with Shopify. You can launch a fully functional website within a day with Shopify, which can hardly be done with Magento. Using Shopify will also be a no-brainer as the platform is optimized for non-tech users.

    Keep the initial investment in mind too. In the long run, if you’re planning to run your business over a long period of time (years or decades), the monthly cost with Magento might be lower than Shopify. However, the initial investment that Magento requires is much larger than Shopfy, so if you’re planning to try out an idea, Shopify is a safe bet.
