WooCommerce is the go-to option for WordPress sites, with over 4 million sites currently using the platform it is also the most popular. WooCommerce has many advantages over its competitors, this option allows a huge amount of scalability and integration with so many other products. This allows you to start small and then grow with your business without the concern that you will outgrow your site quickly and have to find another option which could be costly and disruptive to your business.
Unlike WooCommerce, Shopify is a fully hosted solution with a monthly charge. The advantage of Shopify is that all the hosting and software is fully managed and very simple to use. Shopify has everything you would expect from an online store including mobile apps for management and a POS system that can also be accessed from a mobile device with a card reader, making this a great option for pop up shops. At 19 Degrees East we set up, design and train you on how to use your Shopify store to make sure you get the most out of your store.
PrestaShop is a powerful opensource eCommerce platform which is designed to handle over 100,000 products.
A very powerful online store, this platform is only suitable for businesses with a very large amount of products and volume as the costs of hosting and add-ons for better integration which makes this unfeasible for most online stores.
Similar to PrestaShop, Magento is also a very powerful eCommerce platform designed to handle 100,000’s of products and transactions a day. This platform is also self-hosted and again is not feasible for small stores or businesses due to the monthly costs for running the store.
