eCommerce on Your Terms

Shopify makes it easy to accept and manage online payments, but only on their terms.

For the ownership and freedom of open source, to decide what works for you, build outside the box, and customize without limits: try WooCommerce.

What to Expect from WooCommerce

Enjoy the Freedom of Open Source

Shopify is a closed platform. There are limited product variations, no sub-categories, no options to migrate, and there is nothing you can do about it.

WooCommerce offers the freedom of open source. You have full code access and ownership, the option to customize any aspect of your site, and can integrate any service – with complete control.

Extra Functionality is Not Tied to Plans

All of Shopify’s features are tied to their paid plans.

For example, third-party shipping rates and advanced report building are only available in the Shopify Advanced plan at $299 per month.

With WooCommerce, you can add any free or paid extensions from our marketplace or beyond – when it suits you.

Built on the world’s best CMS

WooCommerce is built on WordPress, offering deep integration with the world’s best content management system and publishing tools.

Updating your site’s content regularly is important for SEO, and it’s simple with WordPress.

This familiar framework is easy to learn, and manage for store owners and content creators alike.

WooCommerce Reviews from

"Have used Shopify for over three years. Now finished my first WooCommerce site and am very happy with the ease of setup, design flexibility, and absence of nickle-diming for any added feature."

"The software is killer, the ecosystem is vibrant, and the people behind it all are the juice that’s worth the squeeze. The developers, designers, and happiness engineers that make WooCommerce what it is are constantly striving to make the customer experience among the most exceptionally great experiences we can have. Makes me want to pass that on to my clients and their customers."

"New to all this but learning quickly loving the challenge but with all the help and support I am navigating my way. Thank you for helping me create a beautiful site."
