Wix is the more cost-effective option, with monthly plans beginning at $27, compared to Shopify’s $29 for the most basic package. It provides a free 14-day trial and has lower premium options in the long term.
Furthermore, Wix doesn’t have any hidden costs for processing payments, but Shopify does. Shopify’s plans provide more advanced tools, however, Wix dominates due to its cheaper costs. Additionally, Wix isn’t light on features, even in the basic plan, so you can expect a lot of value for your money no matter which package you choose.
Furthermore, Shopify supports more than a hundred different payment methods but, you need to pay transaction fees for that. In case, you use Shopify Payments, you don’t need to pay for that. On the other hand, Wix accepts payments via common providers like PayPal, Stripe, and Square, but not through Apple or Amazon Pay. Unlike Shopify, there are no transaction fees if you use third-party apps instead of Wix Payments.
Thus, Wix is the best option for those businesses who don’t want to spend much on monthly subscriptions and transaction fees. Whereas, Shopify can be chosen by those who want to level up their store with 100+ different payment methods.
