    How to make an e-commerce website in Wordpress?

    Hello, there! I know there are many online store platforms out there, but I'm curious whether or not making an e-commerce website using WordPress is more reliable than other platforms.

    I really, truly believe for a brand new startup, or even small non-profits an e-Commerce solution built on the Wordpress platform is great. They give loads of flexibility and resources; which in turn, can save you hundreds or thousands in development. I'm huge Wordpress fans and use them regularly when looking at solutions for our small business clients.

    WordPress can be quite slow and that does not even take into account the inherent issues associated with security and SEO associated with WordPress.

    For a world-wide web site, or a site that supports a large audience outside of a local area, supporting eCommerce I would never recommend WordPress, no professional developer would. There are too many limitations with SEO and security for the product.

    I would not recommend Wordpress for e-commerce also. Wordpress was mainly meant for blog and other articles/news sites and in order to use it for e-commerce you will need to have additional plugins. These plugins usually create the security issues Mike001 has mentioned.

    Frankly, I would recommend PrestaShop or OpenCart. They are easy to use with a lot of functionality.

    I suggest to use Magento. Ive tried Wordpress Woocommerce, Prestashop, Opencart and other Ecommerce CMS. For me Magento is the best followed by Opencart.

    I don't think they're better than WordPress in term of customization such as SEO-support, customized themes & plugins. For larger ecommerce site, I see they use Magento.

    Yes, have tried them both. They are free to install, therefore I would recommend checking both CMS before settling with one of them. For me personally, PrestaShop was the most easy to use.

    Magento is a great choice also if you have coding skills and are familiar with it.
