Really ? For up to 2.5k products ? Have a store with 8k products (and counting) and everything works just fine. Bit of help from WP Rocket and you're there ;)

This video is a terrible representation of Magento. What is the point of making a video comparing a Toyota Corolla to a Lamborghini? Magento is an eCommerce platform. WordPress is essentially a blogging tool, and has a plug-in available that somewhat enables eCommerce transactions. When you really dig in, and try to compare something like Magento Commerce Cloud to WooCommerce, you're basically trying to find similarities between a Lego rocket and Elon Musk's SpaceX Falcon
Cart2CartVideo 11 months ago
Hello, Johnny. Thanks for sharing your point of view. You are absolutely right that Magento and WordPress are completely different, yet please pay attention that the video compares Magento and WoooCommerce, they are aimed at different kinds of eCommerce businesses, and we've tried to make it clear. Both Magento and Woocommerce will benefit online store but of different sizes, budgets and with various goals ahead. Thank you for your time leaving your feedback, it is precious for us. Waiting to hear more from you!

If you are just starting your business - then begin with WooCommerce. After the business will have been developed and you earn tens thousands of bucks on weekly basis - there should be no problem to switch to Magento. Perhaps one should add a note that both WooCommerce and Magento are based on PHP language. So, the difference is not that huge, remember that.

Hi Zed, thanks for your time leaving this helpful commentary. Of course, migration from WooCommerce to Magento is easy with Cart2Cart and will benefit eCommerce business at a particular stage.

1:59 - first problem. MultiStore capability isn't a thing in WooCommerce, but MultiSite for Wordpress is, which reaches the same result, in 1% of the time Magento requires. Same goes for WordPress' native Multi-language support, WooCommerce's variable product support, and layered navigation - all out of the box. As someone who develops magento as part of a large team by day, and builds woocommerce for personal clients at night, WooCommerce is the best possible choice in the market unless you're someone the size of CVS, Walmart, etc., and have the resources necessary to support a 3+ developer team to maintain it. Magneto doesn't have the same size community of WordPress, so they have fewer plugins / extensions available. Hacking does happen more often on WordPress. because like Windows vs Mac, it has an INSANELY lareger user base. Luckily, WordFence is free. Though WooCommerce is a layer on a CMS originally built for blogging, unlike Mage which is natively an ecommerce platform. Woo is built by Automattic. the people who MAKE WORDPRESS. So, I'd dare say that there's little to nothing of merit to the argument that Mage is better because it is natively built for ecommerce. Also, your upper limit for Woo. I'd love to know where you pulled that from. Per the Woocommerce site Sky is the limit. We’ve seen instances of shops with 100,000+ products listed, handling thousands of transactions per minute. In those cases, they had great hosting support and their own developer team focused on optimization. Much like a magento store would need, but with one tenth of the staff support required.

What is your opinion on prestashop, thirtybees or other open sourced ecommerce solutions as opposed to woocommerce?
Cart2CartVideo 1 year ago

That is why we constantly work on the articles and podcasts to keep Cart2Cart clients informed. Thank you for your time leaving such a great commentary. Please, visit our blog , perhaps you'd find the materials useful there too. We are looking for more useful tips from you.

Question: Both have the same purpose? I mean if u know Woocommerce and not magento, u can still do the same?
Cart2CartVideo 1 year ago
Hello Jorge, Both WooCommerce and Magento are great options to manage your e-store. Yet, to define which platform fits your business better, it is recommended to analyze your company goals and requirements, as well as thoroughly investigate the functionality of the solutions. It will help you understand what shopping cart to choose for satisfying your organization's needs. Check out an article “Magento vs WooCommerce. Who Runs Ecommerce?” to learn more information on the platforms.

Ya well when you install additional plugins to secure a WooCommerce website, it is still a lot cheaper than using Magento. Magento is really good for large corporations like McDonald's etc. But if you're just starting out, start with WooCommerce. :D

I think woocommarce will best for you. Best of luck
Cart2CartVideo 1 year ago
Hi Piotr, it is quite difficult to say which platform will suit you best. As the number of products you currently have is not as big you can easily opt for WooCommerce, it is absolutely easy to use and offers advanced eCommerce functionality. What we can say for sure, that both Magento and WooCommerce will be great options as they are currently leaders on the market. To choose a platform you should consider a variety of factors: industry you work in, the size of your business, the goals you want to reach, the budget you are ready to spend, e-store features that are important for you, etc. For more info on differences between the two platforms, please, read our recent article on Cart2Cart blog - “Magento vs WooCommerce. Who Runs Ecommerce?”. Once you are ready to proceed with migration to a particular platform these are the pages where to proceed Magento Migration, WooCommerce Migration. Do not forget that Cart2Cart offers Free Demo that will come in handy as you’re hesitating between the two shopping carts.

Hi Spyrule, We were aware of Magento 2 at the time this video was released (half a year ago) and most of what is said in the video is applicable to both 1.x and 2.x. However, we'll consider refreshing it a little bit. Thanks for your comment!

i searched it and found out that woocommerece has no limit on products is that correct?
Cart2CartVideo 2 years ago
Technically WooCommerce doesn't have no limit on products - that is correct. However, in practice it's commonly reported that WooCommerce's performance gets gradually worse as soon as you reach about 2500 products.
Alon Elharar 2 years ago
it all depends on the hosting you have

can i migrate from woo commerce to magento if my store see increase in no. of orders placed.or for whatever reasons.woo commerce is cost savy nd good for beginners but one hav to migrate to magento if his store becomes a success.
Cormac Ó HEideáin 11 months ago
You shouldn't migrate in a hurry. You will lose a huge amount of SEO information with Google and will have to rebuild it with Google.
