    Magento and Shopify is both for creating Mobile shopping apps. Each platform has particular strength and weakness. The weakness of Magento is its dashboard has a not good look, quite difficult to use. The weakness of Shopify is not strong enough if your store is too big.

    While both Shopify and Magento Community are fairly powerful ecommerce hosting platforms, Shopify provides greater ease of use since it is a hosted and fully managed service.

    People can see a short comparison about cost between Magento and Shopify:

    - Setup fees
    Although charging no fees for setup, Shopify indeed supports a 14-day free trial for web developers and store owners to test the functionalities and features. Meanwhile, Magento is totally free to install and use.

    - Monthly fees
    Shopify offers four different plans with monthly fees ranging from $14 to $179 as follows:
    • Starter Plan : $ 14
    • Basic Plan : $ 29
    • Professional Plan : $79
    • Unlimited Plan : $179
    With Magento, you’ll have to provide your own hosting, which is available at monthly costs ranging anywhere from $5 to 100s of dollars.

    No need to expand too much on what has already been said about this topic. Magento being the “Android” type has by far the most number of applications and extensions available to users. Shopify is a restricted, but still widely used app store, and offers many of the same or similar style extensions that Magento does, without as much customization within the implementation.

    1) Payment gateways extensions

    Magento – 906
    Shopify – 41 (for USA)
    2) Marketing extensions

    Magento – 1817
    Shopify – 287
    3) Shipping

    Magento – 422
    Shopify – 96

    While both platforms do offer integrations with Point of Sale providers and card swipers. They have differences in the way you are able to use them for in store purchases.
