There are many reasons why WordPress, Magento and Shopify are great platforms for websites. All 3 have different capabilities and nuances in their features and restrictions.

Since 2012 we have been building secure website environments in all platforms and have detailed some of the notable benefits for each.

The Benefits of WordPress

There are so many reasons as to why WordPress supports more than 450+ Million websites worldwide. This is not a figure that can be ignored…

WordPress is a highly capable, highly fluid, highly scalable and extremely SEO friendly platform. It offers a wide range of design options and is supported by one of the largest communities on the web.

At Fuell, we love WordPress for plenty of reasons but in particular we know that WordPress is a safe option. The back end panels and content management system are very easy to use; ensuring our partners have full control over their websites.

Partners can choose from millions of themes and plugins to enhance their sites features and offering to their clients.

The platform is by nature responsive to all mobile and tablet devices. And of course, WordPress SEO is superior to any other platform.

The Benefits of Magento

Magento is the best platform on the market for large online stores. It is a more complex platform compared to WordPress and capable of handling much higher traffic, product and sales loads.

What is great about Magento is the dedication commitment from the Magento Team to produce a fantastic platform. Unlike WordPress, which was predominantly created by third parties, Magento is an inhouse platform, created and supported by an inhouse team.

This means the platform is by its nature, extremely secure.

One of the reasons we really like working with Magento is the mature and highly accurate eCommerce CMS suite that it offers to our partners.

To many, Magento is considered the best eCommerce platform on the market today.

Some notable benefits

  • Very fast platform
  • Easy to use
  • Search engine friendly
  • Can create beautiful stores
  • Very popular platform
  • Mobile friendly configuration
  • Powerful extensions
  • Run multiple store fronts
  • Active user forums
  • Highly scalable

The Benefits of Shopify

Shopify has really taken off over the past few years. It has become a serious contender as a leading open source eCommerce platform and can be considered amongst WordPress and Magento.

If you are considering using Shopify OR already use Shopify as your website CMS, then you have a wide range of benefits to enjoy. Not least the wonderful design capabilities the platform has to offer. Of all the open source platforms available on the web today, none offer the level of excellence in their templates as Shopify. You can create stunning stores using Shopify.

Compared to WordPress and Magento, Shopify is still a reasonably “young” platform, with just over 500’000 active websites using the platform.

However, for outstanding control over your store, unrivalled design capabilities and off the shelf payment gateways, Shopify is a viable option.

Some notable benefits

  • Low monthly cost
  • Visually striking designs
  • Marketing tools built in
  • Immediate website hosting
  • Fantastic website security
  • World class customer support
  • Good SEO capability
  • Plenty of extensions
