Online Platforms VS WooCommerce Platform
Online platforms such as Squarespace, Wix, and Shopify are easier to set up but less flexible. With WooCommerce, a WordPress extension, it does take longer to set up your website, but it also gives you more freedom to improve and add features to your store over time.
Online platforms are good for making simple websites and suited for particular types of products. Overall, online platforms are less hassle, but you have less control over the design and functionality, plus there can be platform commission costs and costs for extra features.
WooCommerce takes more maintenance and more time to set up, but it is easier to get the website to function in a specific way. The cost of extra features is usually a lot less, and there is no platform commission on sales (although there will be something from the payment gateway company).
About Online Platforms
Online platforms, such as Shopify, are simple to work with. They are suitable for small shops that have photogenic products. They are easier to look after and maintain and comes with their own hosting and product management software.
However, there are monthly fees and commissions on sales, and if you need specific functionalities, the costs go up.
