Wix versus Shopify is a match-up between two high quality and popular website building platforms and as a partner to both Wix and Shopify, we certainly have explored the pros and cons of each. The most important question is, which one would be better for your business needs? Overall, both Wix and Shopify are recognised as evenly matched with many positive benefits to both, but whether a business chooses to opt for Wix or Shopify depends on their unique needs- the budget, the goals, the size of the business, the business vision, to name a few. Whereas Wix is a website builder first and foremost and specialises in having more adaptable design abilities, Shopify is designed to help businesses set up as an e-commerce platform, which has quickly gained a leading status in their niche.
We believe that Wix is the best platform for a small business to put up a professional-looking website. Its templates, setup interview, and editing tools create modern, clean-looking sites that you can easily customise, and adding crucial tools like contact forms or restaurant menus is easier than with other website-building tools. When working with Wix, we create websites from scratch and tailor it to each business' vision, mission and needs. These features mean that we can fully help you create an on brand website, look after your brand and help you grow successfully.
Shopify was born to be an e-commerce platform with so many features that support e-commerce businesses in a myriad of ways. One of the features that we truly think makes it stand out is it’s Shop app that takes digital shopping to another level. It makes it easy for customers to speed through checkout, track their order and shipment details and rediscover brands they love! With Shopify, we work off templates and edit them to fit into the business’ brand guidelines. The final website will also be completely tailored to the client’s needs, though Shopify does require bespoke coding if the design is to be altered to a great extent.
Both Wix and Shopify have reporting tools and both integrate with instagram shop. We believe that both websites are very robust in what they offer and the decision would depend on what a client is looking for as a final result.
