Shopify versus Magento

Undertaking a product comparison between Shopify and Magento is believed to be a tough ask due to the fact that there are three different editions of Magento – a free ‘community’ edition; the ‘Go’ version suitable for SMEs and the ‘Enterprise’ edition meant for the bigger companies.

Both Shopify and Magento Community are fairly powerful ecommerce hosting platforms, but Shopify offers enhanced ease of use since it is completely hosted and fully managed service.

Magento needs the user to buy hosting and implement all the software/system setup and installation procedures themselves, something that the tech-oriented people (and not the typical end-users) are able to do.

Shopify is definitely a stronger eCommerce platform for developing an online store with robust ease of use and powerful capabilities.
