Which is the Best?

Both Magento and Shopify are fairly powerful platforms but Shopify offers greater ease of use as it is a hosted platform.

You should use Shopify if you want your store to get up and run quickly or you are just starting out on E-commerce but want a full-fledged E-commerce store. You should use Magento if you have the required coding skills and want to build the store for your large-sized or medium-sized business.
