Questions

Is Shopify or Wordpress better for blogging if I would like to sell some services on my store?

5answers

Wordpress will give you many more blogging options and capabilities than Shopify. There are also numerous plugins for Wordpress that allow you to sell services. WooCommerce is great for selling products, but you may want to find a plugin that allows you to sell just services. You don't really need all the inventory and other product-related capabilities that WooCommerce provides if you are just selling services.

Shopify is great for selling tangible products. However, it sounds like you want to sell services, so the many tools and plugins that give Shopify users the ability to quickly set up shop aren't really helpful to you.

Hi there- you're asking two questions here. One, you're asking which tool is better for blogging. Without a doubt, WordPress is the better tool. Then you mention selling services, where Shopify would typically be a better choice.

Based on only what you've shared here, I recommend WordPress + WooCommerce and avoid Shopify altogether.

I'm happy to discuss this further and help navigate getting your website started. Book a call or send me a message.

All the best,
-Shaun

You're talking about two separate functions.

Blogging + Selling.

My preference for client sites is to use WordPress with WooCommerce to provide a sales system.

Wordpress was really built for blogging and in my opinion, is the best!

It is no secret that we love working with WordPress for brochure-style, marketing, and heavy, blog-driven content sites, but when it comes to selling online, especially for mature companies, we steer clear and always use the ultra-secure and scalable world of Shopify. As a dedicated, hosted ecommerce solution, Shopify is without a doubt an excellent choice for selling online.
