Main differences between Magento and Shopify
Magento is a self-hosted e-commerce content management system. Shopify is a hosted e-commerce solution.
So what does that mean? Magento website owners have to continually update the core Magento content management files and database, which can be expensive both in terms of time and money. The norm is to pay developers to keep your website up to date to ensure its smooth running.
Shopify is a hosted content management system which means that any core updates are made by Shopify, meaning that the job is taken care of, so your developers and web designers can get on with the task of managing your website.
