wordpress or shopify?



10:23 am on Jul 10, 2014 (gmt 0)

hi all, I'm a new user Marco.

I have a question for you that might seem trivial: it is better for an ecommerce wordpress or shopify?

I have my doubts about the Mobile scalability .
Thank you very much

I would go with Shopify or someone other "E commerce" type platform than Wordpress because in the long run it will pay off when you have to process a lot of orders. With Wordpress you would have to use Woo Commerce plug in, and when I researched this about 6 months ago, there are not many back end add-ons that help in processing orders and shipping, especially if you are trying to dropship your orders to suppliers. It will send an email, but not create Purchase order numbers so that you can keep up with them. True Ecommerce platforms should have a lot of add-ons or extensions that already exist that can help you run your business and also integrate into accounting software like Quickbooks. Make sure to figure out how the back end processes should run and if the platform has the ability to do what you need. Volusion, Shopify, Magento Commerce all seem like they are capable of doing this and can be responsive or have a mobile theme, but I am not sure to what degree on each.

@makeonlineshop - really hard to answer that question because it really depends on what you want it to do! I'm seeing eCommerce platforms begin to veer away from the all-in-one solution. I believe authors are realizing that in order to do the job well they need to specialize. They may have more than one specialized product but the days of the all-in-one platform are numbered.

I already have a site woocommerce. And to tell you the truth I have doubts are emerging especially on the mobile side.

And it is for this reason that reading on various forums I was thinking of bringing the website in shopify.

for a more complete opinion can I leave the link to the site?

thank you again

When in doubt about links it is best to check the Forum Charter [webmasterworld.com...] which may be different from one Forum to another.
