    Shopify might be easier but you are stuck with them. The cost will be cheaper but as you grow so will your cost. Wordpress with a design might be expensive at first but will pay for itself in the longhaul

    i think Wordpress maybe the better option as with Shopify there are monthly costs. Just install WooCommerce on Wordpress, cheaper in the long run

    for long run WP is good but if you are short in budget, stick to Shopify

    If i were you, I would start with Shopify and start the sales. Post that, I would create WP version on side by side too..

    Surely you have that the wrong way round, WordPress and woocommerce are free

    If it's services and you know somewhat what you're doing then wordpress. If you don't know squat about anything IM or are selling a physical product then Shopify

    I was referring to the professional design if you dont know how to do it could be costly.

    ok fair enough, yes it can cost a lot but wordpress.org has plenty of free themes on there that's good for starters or those on low budget.

    True! Thats assuming you know how to use it. Im just giving the pros and cons of both. Doing your own thing is always the best option (wordpress + woocomerace)
