An ideal e-commerce CMS is required for running online store. Fortunately there are two open sources available which makes it beneficial even for small online stores – wordpress and magento. Different CMS have different features and it is difficult to pick one, leaving us in a state of dubiety. So, in order to make a perfect choice it is very important that detailed study is done regarding the facts in accordance with our needs. Let’s compare both wordpress and magento so that we can make a fair choice for our business and building and effective professional website. Wordpress is a solution for content marketing and digital publishing goals. On the other hand Magento is focussed in building business website design and online sales website. Although wordpress becomes an e-commerce website if a plugin called woocommerce is installed. Wordpress has a moduled structure and allows organized variations. IT does not require any licensing and is compatible with major servers online. It also has a huge support of community developers, content writers and newcomers.

Woocommerce is totally an open source platform whereas magento offers free community version as well as several paid services.
Woocommerce requires hosting from other sources, on the other hand Magento is self hosted, although the charges are included in the package chosen.
Woocommerce is user friendly, that is businessman without any technical knowledge can work on woocommerce, make additions, necessary changes and even updates whereas magento cannot be used without technical knowledge.
Both can support blog posts, site pages, products, shopping carts, customer accounts and order history.
Security matters- both are highly secure but the add-ons, themes and plugins chosen and the misconfigured server security flaws, makes the server security vulnerable. So it is important to choose reliable hosting.
Both are SEO friendly but for wordpress, its important to choose clean coded themes and install a plugin such as yoast SEO to manage custom page, titles and meta description. Magento requires well scripted theme. If title and alt text is added to each image it can increase traffic with the help of image searches.
Wordpress is ideal for small enterprises having short term goals. Magento is ideal for big enterprises having long term goals.
