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.

It's why I back to this post and looking if any of you know how to convert my WordPress online store to PrestaShop or Openchart? What tool can help? I have spent time and searched on Google, no discussion or post can really help. All of my efforts were failed. I would like to try both versions on my localhost prior to completely set it online.

I heard of PrestaShop or Openchart but not tried them because I am afraid of using new platform which can make me consume more time to learn and configure while Wordpress is more easier.

But the CMS available now a days are not as much secure as your website must be. I can understand they can save time and money but they are not as secure might prove wrong choice. So if you have time and budget, don't chose wordpress.
