I get asked a lot of questions about WordPress almost on a daily basis - and sometimes by the same people lol. But one question that raises its head often is this... Should I be using WordPress for my client's ecommerce store or is it better to use Shopify? Of course, there's other alternatives like BigCommerce etc, but the point remains; is WP the right platform to host your client's online store? It totally depends. I know that's not a very good answer. But let's consider your requirements. If you want something fast, reliable and secure straight out of the box, then Shopify is likely a good choice for you. Not only that, but you don't have to worry so much about payment processors. WordPress on the other hand is good when you want total control over your online ecosystem. I've also heard it scores better for SEO. Woocommerce would be a good choice here, although it takes more time to setup. Woo is scalable, despite the myths that say it isn't, but the factors weigh heavily on your choice of hosting, theme and surrounding plugins. I'd highly recommend a strong, reliable and secure host if you have a store with 100s of items. I know Tawnya uses Liquid Web. I recently posted this as one of the questions appearing on my Most Asked Question post here: http://markofapproval.com/what-do-you-want-to-know-about-building-wordpress-websites/ Of course you can ask you own question if you so wish. So what is your take on ecommerce platforms? Is this something you even want to touch? I know the ground gets shaky for some when it comes to payment processors, online stores and countless inventories.
