Moltin vs Shopify: What are the differences?

What is Moltin? eCommerce API for developers, powerful & flexible building blocks. Developers and merchants can manage stores through our responsive dashboard immediately after signing up, making development a non-linear process, with store owners able to add inventory whilst developers are working on the website with real data.

What is Shopify? Quickly and easily create a beautiful online store with Shopify. Shopify powers tens of thousands of online retailers including General Electric, Amnesty International, CrossFit, Tesla Motors, Encyclopaedia Britannica, Foo Fighters, GitHub, and more. Our platform allows users to easily and quickly create their own online store without all the technical work involved in developing their own website, or the huge expense of having someone else build it. Shopify lets merchants manage all aspects of their shops: uploading products, changing the design, accepting credit card orders, and viewing their incoming orders and completed transactions.

Moltin and Shopify can be primarily classified as "Ecommerce" tools.

Some of the features offered by Moltin are:

  • Manage multiple stores & admin accounts
  • Responsive admin dashboard
  • Product management & inventory control

On the other hand, Shopify provides the following key features:

  • Choose from 100+ professional themes
  • Customize the look of your online store
  • Start accepting orders in minutes

The interoperability and reliability of Shopify is simply unmatched on the market. Having been a web developer for a few years, I cannot imagine going with any other solutions because of the level of development that would need to go into each and every tweak requested by stakeholders.

Shopify makes it easy to use apps off the shelf to test an idea, after which you can replace it with a custom solution or build on top of it.

Using their robust API, array of webhooks, Shopify Flow and Shopify Scripts, with a little know-how anything you want to do is just a few clicks or lines of code away from reality. The community is also pretty robust, so if you ever need help, you're not alone.

Full disclosure: I've been invested since 2015, but it's because they really are the best on the market.

I chose Shopify over other options - the leading contender of which was WooCommerce - based mainly on the availability of integrations with other tools and platforms I use, as well as the ease of adding and updating inventory. Additionally, should I ever open a physical location, my existing inventory can easily be sold via a POS system as well. Eyes to the future!

we've had alot of shopify clients and do alot of those website builds, but we decided a little while back to transfer any client possible to woocommerce, for our e-com web development, as there is alot more functionality available with zoo-commerce. you can have a look at our examples and even our own website in the link provided.
