    Well you're not going to start a dropshiping bussiness with spotify I can tell you that. I guess you mean shopify.

    May be you are wondering between Wordpress and Shopify. If you are OK with Wordpress then go for it.

    Shopify is widely advertised but I think as I said if you are OK with Wordpress use it.

    Shopify - Drag and drop. No development experience required. Good analytics. Payment method easy integration. Trusted.

    WordPress - All the above with full control if you know how to develop a store.

    Personally I think the CDN and the free included SSL with shopify is hard to beat with a hosting plan. There are less options, but everything works. Faster development and I can get more products up without any hassle. That is why I do shopify.

    PS the backend of shopify is always fast since its hosted on there servers.

    There's a reason why shopify is highly used for ecom, it's designed especially to suit this area. Shopify IS NOT a drag and drop. I personally recommend shopify for anyone, even developers, starting a drop shipping store.

    It's even better if you're a developer because changing bits and pieces is easy (I'm not a coder but have played around, moved, changed, and removed parts I didn't want.) The downside is the monthy cost.

    Tl;dr go shopify, it's easy af to use. The monthy cost is well worth it once you get the hang of drop shipping.
