    In my opnion, I don’t think this a fair and complete analysis. Both platforms serve their purpose and they focus on two different niche market. Shopify targeted demographics focuses on business owners who can start their business in minutes which includes cloud hosting.

    I would have loved to see you guide the reader in choosing their platform more carefully rather than saying one is the winner. For example, Magento is an open source platform and Shopify is not. Shopify is confined within their own liquid platform. Magento platform is scalable, while Shopify can be somewhat restricted. For example, as of 2019 Shopify has not implemented a one-page checkout, while Magento you have the option to do so.

    Magento ECE is gained towards mid-size to large companies, while Shopify primary focus was on the new age millennial entrepreneurs and innovators who wanted instant fast-pace service to suit their entrepreneur needs. Don’t get me wrong Shopify has done a great job to offer services that grow with the entrepreneur, but they are not a direct competitor to Magento. Shopify should’ve been more compared to Volusion and Big-Commerce seeing that it is their direct competition.

    When you look at Magento ECE portfolio you’ll see major brands like Benetton co, Nike, Ford, Land Rover, Tous, Canon, Vizio and Christian Louboutin were all users of Magento. Now that Adobe acquired Magento things are changing and these brands are integrating Adobe experience manager all which cost a house and 2 cars yearly to use.

    I think both platforms have their pros and cons. I enjoy what Shopify offers but you don’t get complete control like you would with Magento. Magento is not for the faint at heart. Magento is not user-friendly and 90% of the time requires an experienced professional to oversee the site. Also, Magento requires a good hosting provider because it is a powerhouse system. Most people who’re looking for something fast, user-friendly, economical and robust should go with Shopify and as the business grows then they can figure out their next steps. Shopify also has done a good job keeping their consumers by offering their Shopify-plus account.

    If you are a business owner who’s looking for complete control of their platform and looking to integrate some interesting functionalities, then Magento is the platform you should consider.
