    Difference between Magento & Shopify
    Magento Shopify
    Cost Magento Open Source is free but requires add-ons, and in-depth technical knowledge for basic functionalities. Magento Enterprise Edition’s costs, which is a tier up,will vary depending on the size and complexity of your business and is costlier. Significantly more affordable and is subscription-based.
    Ease of Use High-levels of technical knowledge and skills required Simple, intuitive and ready-to-use
    Support Due to it being an open-source solution, there is lack of dedicated customer support in terms of live chat, phone, or email 24/7 service, Email, Live Chat + Phone
    Data & Insights Consumer insight is provided, but requires more diligent data analysis and interpretation, leaving a larger room for error More sophisticated delivery of customer insights to help you understand and target your customers. Shopify partners with industry-leading analytics companies, like Glew and Looker, to bring you up-to-date, expert data and insight. This arms ecommerce giants with the detailed information they need to make big business calls in a split second.
    Scalability Magento requires extensive, custom infrastructure work to scale at all levels. Shopify scales infinitely without effort.
    Security Pricey but solid service. Dedicated security centre that charges from $1,000 to $5,000 for SQL injection vulnerabilities. Highly secure. Hassle-free, Cloud-hosted solution that takes care of your security matters in the background. SSL encryption enabled to keep customer data safe.
    Flexibility Large collection of templates available, highly customizable Large collection of themes and templates, less than Magento’s offering, but more contemporary look/feel options that are optimised for conversion
    Need more reasons to migrate?

    Here are some of the key reasons why so many Magento customers are moving to Shopify

    • Shopify gives a significantly easier store set up experience while delivering polished results; Magento however, requires more advanced technical skills from set-up onwards to achieve the similar effect
    • While Magento doesn’t have a real cloud strategy; Shopify has a robust cloud system. Magento Cloud is simply white-labeled hosting.
    • Shopify saves you time and money by eliminating the need for at least half of the backend development effort normally needed. Magento implementation budgets generally include both frontend and backend implementation effort and require more developmental effort.
    • Shopify offers a lot more support, 24/7 in fact. Whereas there is no dedicated support available for Magento unless you purchase the Enterprise edition, and most help comes from their community forums.
    • While both have great selection when it comes to add-ons, Shopify has made it simpler to install and easier to use its range.
    • When it comes to dropshipping, Shopify works with Oberlo to enable this while there is no integration of dropshipping inventory apps for Magento.
    • Shopify supports over 70 payment gateways, while this is limited for Magento (but can be achieved via 3rd party apps)
    • Where SEO is concerned, both Shopify and Magento are neck and neck as both feature powerful and effective SEO functionalities.
    • Security concerns? Shopify takes care of it all. With stats showing that 62% of Magento stores have security issues, it unfortunately fails to come up on top in this aspect.
    • Figuring out your customer is half the battle. While Magento insights require some deciphering, we’ve found that Shopify’s in-built store analytics delivers the data in a straightforward manner. To help you understand your audience, target customers effectively and are equipped with sufficient information at hand to make big decisions swiftly.
