Shopify Challenges WooCommerce With New Ecommerce Plugin for WordPress

Shopify, a mainstream ecommerce solution, recently declared the arrival of another Shopify ecommerce plugin for WordPress, which it claims offers straightforwardness and usability.
The ecommerce site building company says:

Shopify Ecommerce Plugin makes selling products on your WordPress site simple. In just a few clicks you can create a Buy Button and add ecommerce functionality that lets visitors securely checkout from any page on your site.…You can seamlessly integrate a WordPress shopping cart for as little as one product. It’s perfect for WordPress ecommerce site owners looking for a simple way to sell directly to their audience.

Shopify pitches the plugin as a contrasting option to WooCommerce, yet is it? All things considered, WooCommerce is an intense shopping basket assembled explicitly for WordPress that makes an impressive rival.

Shopify Ecommerce Plugin

When you add products to Shopify, you can introduce the plugin by means of the WordPress plugin directory or by transferring files manually to your server. Then, use the plugin to connect to your Shopify account.


After the installation of Shopify ecommerce plugin, you will see an ” Add Product” button show up over your page or blog entry content.


Installing the Shopify plugin adds the ability to easily drop products.


Following that, insert some shortcode and publish the page or post to start accepting orders. The new Shopify ecommerce plugin allows you to accept payments from customers using Shopify Payments, Stripe and Paypal.


Although both stages use WordPress as their host, the WooCommerce system is completely inserted in it. Shopify’s new ecommerce plugin, then again, is just an augmentation that brings Shopify’s ecommerce highlights into WordPress.
