Magento vs. WooCommerce

When it comes to choosing the right e-commerce platform for your business there are a number of things to think about, not least of all is deciding whether to go down the open-source route or to pay the up-front fee and tie yourself in with any number of closed-source or ‘proprietary software’ e-commerce solutions.

Here at Creare we are big believers in using powerful Open-Source software for the development of our clients’ websites. There are 3 simple reasons for this:

  1. Cost Effective Development – As the software itself is free to download, there are no additional up-front purchase costs to transfer to our customers.
  2. Market Leading Software – Every open-source platform we choose to use at Creare is a market-leader and is constantly improving year on year – meaning no more stagnant out-of-date software.
  3. We Build It, You Own It – As we’re using open-source software, once we’ve built your website for you – it’s yours to keep.

Two of the biggest Open-Source E-commerce platforms out there are WooCommerce and Magento. There are a number of differences between these two platforms and it’s important that when making the decision to invest into an e-commerce website you are choosing the right platform for your business.
