I'm about to get started on a few e-commerce stores and will be focusing on Print on Demand.
A lot of the tutorials/courses etc. that I've come across recommend Shopify for this.
Something tells me that the fact that they can get recurring affiliate commissions for a Shopify recommendation is a big reason why I see it being hyped so much.
For someone who is already paying for hosting and is comfortable working with Wordpress, is there any benefit to using Shopify instead of WooCommerce?
It seems to be that by using Shopify, I'd be adding a lot more to my operating expenses to essentially do what I can do for free with WooCommerce.
And, after chatting with support, I found out that in order to run multiple Shopify stores, you need to pay the monthly Shopify fee x the amount of stores you have.
So.. 5 stores works out to 5 x $29/$79 .. PER MONTH.
Why would anyone who's technically savvy use this?
What am I missing?
Is it really THAT much better than the free WooCommerce solution?
