Building an online store? There are many content management systems (CMS) that allow you to build your site without writing a single line of code. Pick a template, hit publish, and bam: you’re store is live.

But when a template just won’t do, building with Magento is a strong option to consider. Magento allows for unlimited product listings, is free to use, and paid themes are available for just $1. It does require a developer to build your store, but luckily, Crew will hand-pick a freelance Magento developer to create a site perfectly tailored for your business.

Hire on Crew

Over the past 4 years, millions of people have used stores and websites created by a Crew freelance Magento developer. Startups like Blubel, Zipbooks and Companion turned to Crew to make websites that stand out from the masses, and we helped Eventbrite update their web app that’s done over $1.5 billion in ticket sales. When blogger and Venture Capitalist Om Malik needed a new home for his writing and photography, he knew where to come. Here’s what he had to say about his experience.

“I’ve worked with a lot of freelancers, and there’s often a lot of drama. Things don’t get done on time, etc… But Brian just nailed it. He’s been very good at making everything work for me and just everything is amazing.”
— Om Malik

The differences between the main e-commerce platforms

The different platforms have a lot of overlapping features, and each comes with its own unique benefits. Here’s a quick rundown of the pros and cons for Shopify, WooCommerce, Bigcommerce and Magento.



One of, if not the most robust ecommerce platform out there, Magento has over 5000 free and paid apps and add-ons available. Powered by its open source community, it’s entirely free to use, and premium themes start for as little as a $1. The main expense you’ll face is hosting, which you’ll need to set up separately from your store.

When it comes to building a fully customized and unique online shopping experience, Magento really is a heavyweight amongst featherweights. It does require a tech-savvy owner or freelance Magento developer to set everything up and build the store, but Crew can help with that. Plus, the power of the platform really makes Magento stand apart.



The Bigcommerce platform offers a wide variety of themes that are easy to setup and maintain, track inventory, process payments, and offer discount codes, all with their starter plan. Also, all plans above the starter plan feature no transaction fees, which can definitely add up.

It’s a solid system for business that aren’t yet at an enterprise level, with prices of $29.95, $79.95 and $199.95/month for their Silver, Gold and Platinum plans, respectively. While they do offer enterprise plans, if you process over 3,000 orders or $125k in sales per year, you may pay $900-1,500 per month.



Likely the most popular ecommerce platform today, and for good reason. Shopify works for the smallest of businesses as well as established retailers of all sizes, with loads of features, super simple and customizable themes, great pricing and unmatched customer support. Like we said, there’s good reason Shopify is quickly becoming the go-to for online stores.

Their plans range from as low as $9/month, up to $299 per month. The Lite plan includes Facebook selling capabilities, POS integration, shippings codes and one staff account, while the Advanced account includes preferred credit card rates, advanced report building, real-time shipping updates, and 15 staff accounts. There are also Basic and Pro options in between those two account types, offering plenty of features based on your business’ needs.

One downside with Shopify is that you aren’t able to set up discount codes with their starter plan.



This platform is actually a plugin, allowing you to turn your existing WordPress-powered website into a full-fledged online store. It helps you manage inventory, process payments, shopping, and more. It works equally well for brand new and existing websites, and powers over 39% of all online shops.

WooCommerce is for the more tech-savvy shop owners, as you’ll need to buy a domain and hosting prior to building your site using a WordPress theme.
