In short, Shopify is a hosted platform with more restrictions, but with that come the benefits of ease of use for the end user, with very clear documentation. Your investment in the platform will likely be lower, and this suits as less “tech savvy” business and business owner, looking to move online. It is still a scalable platform and businesses like Gymshark have built multi-million £ enterprises on the shopify platform.
WordPress provides more in the way of flexibility, specifically where there’s a need for varied design requirements like custom landing pages and integrations, where Shopify can be somewhat limited. Your investment here will be slightly greater, as it the learning curve of the CMS, but once you’re up and running, the site could and will stay with your business for years to come!
