    Magento and WooCommerce have strengths and features for different needs and different segments.

    Magento
    Magento interface is friendly for users on the basic level. There are a lot of tutorial videos and helps from communities to set up. However, everything becomes more difficult when adding extensions to site. Magento requires core knowledge in coding and development.

    With Community version, users can download and use freely but no guarantee the advices & plugins. If you want to the better support and a high scalable features in built, you can pay fees for Enterprise Version. Magento has mainly commercial extensions. Few extensions is free. Moreover, adding extensions need technical knowledge. In many case, users must hire a developer to install the extension properly.
    People can start Magento site free but need a big budget to develop and expand store effectively.

    WooCommerce
    WooCommerce is a light platform, easy to add on WordPress and manage. Setting up is relatively simple. Developers can be available to choose and add many high plugins without worrying about difficulty of management

    WooCommerce is a free eCommerce platform. You can download it in the Internet. You install WordPress and add WooCommerce plugin. You will find many free themes, extensions for WooCommerce and install them quickly and easily.


    Magento is great, no doubt about it. However, when you choose an eCommerce platform, you should think about your long-term goal and your budget, what you need not what the software provide.

    “If your expected turnover isn’t at least $1M/ year, Magento is almost certainly not right for you”Mark (Boagworld forum)

    You are using Magento store. You feel that the budget for Magento is too big and management system is complicated. In your mind, you want to use WooCommerce with simple things. You should try with Magento to WooCommerce Migration Tool by LitExtension, which can turn dreams into reality.

    "It is no doubt that WooCommerce would take out Magento. Magento is more for the novice to mid-expert website administrator. But if you have a team of developers and coders working on a website that really wants to blow out the competition and set the biggest footprint in your industry with immense customizations, then Magento is the way to go."

    Magento is open source software as a wealth of reliable e-commerce today. But even install, edit, complex operating it, let alone to design, code, it takes a lot of time, new experiences are perceived.
    If you are really serious and long-term oriented, try to both work and school, the value that it then you'll see no more software where.
    I also use MAGENTO for my business. And it's great platform for m-commerce.

    People recognize that Magento is suitable for large business and agencies with grand plans or existing successful online store. Smaller businesses with less developing experience should use WordPress and WooCommerce.

    Thanks for this! Do you find that Woocommerce becomes slower than Magento after many orders and products have built up in the database?

    Hosting of Magento is quite complicated. Magento store requires some technical knowledge to set up server. Magento developers usually use dedicated servers or cloud plan to keep Magento store running stably. Shared hosting plan is expensive.
