Hello Eric Wanjala,

Wordpress is the number 1 content management website builder we have today, it powers the largest percentage of the internet. It's easy to work with and it delivers a great result.

If you know how to work with WordPress, you are good to go but if you need help on how to develop e-commerce using WordPress, I can recommend an online course for you, it's tutored using the latest version of WordPress which makes it a perfect choice for newbies.

I wish you all the best

Cheers!

There's really no difference whether you use Magento or WordPress. Your store success will be determined by other factors, such as price, user experience, delivery, payment methods. WordPress might be a better choice if you want to integrate mobile money payments like Mpesa. Potential pitfalls include fraud,chargebacks to be exact. Get in touch if you have more questions

Eric the right question would be , what are you expecting in terms of Sales Revenue against maintenance costs and hosting an ecommerce site. There are variable platforms, Wordpress being a fairly decent one. Security is usually paramount on such sites as they carry personal information of your clients. So first SSL certification for your sites, secondly a good host, who is secure and not prone to failures , thirdly an ecommerce platform which can be personalised to your company standards. Long term would suggest you develop your own as then you are free to customise it as you fit. Sometimes Wordpress updates on addons fail as the addon creator no longer supports it. one of the pitfalls of using a pre-build Database handler.
