WordPress vs. Shopify for Women’s Products E-commerce Site?

Hey everyone,

I’m starting an e-commerce site in Dubai focused on women’s products. It’s my first time building a website, and I’m looking to make this a long-term brand.

I’m torn between using WordPress (with WooCommerce) and Shopify. Both plans cost about the same, with Shopify being just $1 more. The WordPress e-commerce plan I’m looking at is one of the highest available and offers soooo many more features compared to Shopify’s most basic plan. Yet, I see a lot of people still prefer Shopify.

Any advice on why this might be and which platform might be better for a beginner aiming for long-term growth? Thanks!
