I have many years of experience in creating and designing WordPress and Woocommerce websites. Other ecommerce options I can assist with are Shopify and Prestashop.

WooCommerce vs Shopify

The setup cost is roughly the same, but if you are looking for lower monthly costs then Shopify will cost you more than WooCommerce, which will only cost your monthly hosting. (As well as annual domain registration fee.) Hosting can begin at R99 a month. I recommend Kalk Bay Enlightened Hosting for excellent service as well as carbon neutral hosting.

Shopify is more user friendly than WooCommerce, so once you website is set up you may find it better to have an ecommerce site that is easier to update and add products to.

Shopify comes with 10 free themes. Woocomerce has one free theme, but there are countless free WordPress themes that can work with WooCommerce.

Other factors to take into consideration are payment gateways and currency options.

WooCommerce sites require updates to plugins and are also at risk of being hacked.
