    Ive seen other people mention on here that with shopify you dont need to know how to code, plus you get a free SSL cert. however woocomerce is free and you have more control

    Woo is very easy to set up and free, no monthly cost other than hosting

    Shopify is easier but more expensive. If you have the money go with shopify, if you have the time go with wordpress.

    If don't mind the monthly fee and want to get your products out there quickly, Shopify. If you want to save and don't mind waiting and learning Wordpress and taking more control, Wordpress.

    I have a website that is currently in development. In my personal experience while Shopify does have certain advantages it was not my first choice when getting started. If you are just trying to get off the ground then I recommend WooCommerce due to the fact that it will be easier for your wallet and if you know word press then it might even be easier for you set up

    If you have a startup budget of $150, you can setup your own ecom site with alidropship plugin, which is easier than shopify to use, since it's dedicated to ali dropshippers and you can import products and process the orders in 1 click. It's costs $89/site for life and another $20 to setup you VPS for fast loading of your site and $50 would be reserve.

    So, the from next month you will have to pay $20 for server, which is not huge.

    In fact, I have 25% off coupon for aliplugin, thus purchased 5 licenses and running 5 sites and got the 1st month of VPS for free.

    So, my 1st month cost for 1 site was around $67.

    Oh any that includes SSL as well and I have full control of my site, with whatever payment processor I want to have.

    I have PP, CC, Bitcoin.

    WooCommerce will take more time to learn,

    But you have much more control, you can make things look much nicer, and it is also free.

    You can also get pretty much any theme or plugin for free if you can find the right links ;)

    The reason I dropped shopify is that everything has a subscription, you need a plugin, it has a subscription, getting expensive real fast.

    The alidropship plugin from Yaros is ok but the problem is that you can't customize it much, all people that use that plugin, their sites look all the same.

    Shopify you can adjust to certain points. But I prefer WP and woocommerce.
    Woocommerce also have a aliexpress plugin which is OTO unlike oberlo on shopify.

    Interesting question. I am about to start dropshipping as well.

    How about the payment progress of these two? The same?
    Is it possible to make the sites multilingual? Like it has a build in translator?
