The Case for WordPress and WooCommerce for your eCommerce store:
Using a self hosted website with WordPress and WooCommerce gives you better control of your website.
If you set up your store with platforms like Shopify (where they host your website), they can possibly close your store without your permission, anytime. Imagine having built up a good following and blissfully minding your own business when you realised your store got shut down. You really want to build on a better foundation.
We recommend using WordPress and WooCommerce because they are easy to pick up and manage, and you have more control and ownership of your business. There is also an entire marketplace of plugins you may pick and choose from to satisfy your business needs. Eg. Membership rewards, localization, automated marketing, etc.
