    For dropshipping, Shopify now booming. But why people not using Woocommerce when it's free to use and easy to manage. Then why so much people looking at Shopify? What are the core benefits?

    Well, laziness maybe, a majority of drop shippers hate that part of the backend and building sites, so Shopify solves that problem, ...and what make it more legit, is the monthly subscription...

    but in fact, Woocommerce is far better, and with it, you can manage and control every detail in your website

    I just started using WooCommerce and to be fair, I can see why people would use Shopify.

    I'm loving Woo because I already had hosting so it's costing me nothing and I'm learning loads about Wordpress through doing this. But for someone who knows less HTML and CSS (I have a reasonable grasp on them) it would be daunting to customize.

    Shopify is much easier to customize for a non-coder basically.

    Beginners need qualified customer support. Shopify does that. Not all IMs are technically savvy. This feild is going to get dominated by beginners because it's growth is still in its infancy. Get in on the gettin'

    I don't think they do. One of the big bonus you got with wordpress.com back in the day was that they'd feature your blog on their home page and you'd get a flood of visitors out of nowhere. I don't know if that happens anymore, seems like the whole WWW has gone pay for play.

    Yeah, you're right. Thighs are going to paid one by one and so on.

    Here's what I find shopify give me: a free HTTPS, a prebuilt payment gateway and commission + monthly fee :-D

    I think WP has a good option if I consider that none of them give me any free traffics until I pay them :p

    Shopify is fine and there are lots of people making good $ with it.

    I don't know that they give you any free exposure though, I may be wrong.

    Woocommerce isn't free hosting, domains, plugins, etc. Both cost money I feel like the costs are a wash for me based on what I would need to make my woocommerce store run like my Shopify store. Shopify is easier for my partner to manage, there's tons of loyalty and affiliate apps, upsell apps, etc. Shopify makes it fast and easy a nd makes pretty sharp looking sites for $29 per month can't really go wrong there.

    Right?

    Why does Tripadvisor take 70% of all tourism searches? Because $.

    Several niches are pay for play basically. They push 6 ads at the top, plus the same sites on those ads usually rank right below.

    Pay per inclusion search engine, like Overture could never dream.
