How to Migrate from Shopify to WooCommerce

How to Migrate from Shopify to WooCommerce | Elementor

There are a few reasons why WordPress/WooCommerce is more flexible than Shopify.

First, you get access to the huge ecosystem of WordPress plugins. While the Shopify App Store has a lot of options, it still doesn’t hold a candle to the 56,000+ free plugins at WordPress.org (plus thousands of premium plugins).

For example, if you want more control over the design of your store, you can use Elementor’s visual, drag-and-drop interface to design everything. Or, if you want to promote offline events, like a local popup shop you’re running, you could grab a WordPress event calendar plugin.

Second, WordPress can do a lot more than eCommerce, whereas Shopify is pretty much 100% focused on eCommerce. This gives you a lot more flexibility to grow your online presence. For example, because of WordPress’ strengths as a blogging platform, you could grow your own blog as a vehicle for content marketing.

Shopify does let you have a blog, but it’s nowhere near as flexible as WordPress.

Finally, because both WordPress and WooCommerce are self-hosted and open-source, you have full access to all of your store’s underlying code. Basically, if you can’t find a plugin to do what you need, you can always develop it yourself (or hire someone to do so).
