Shopify vs. Magento vs. WooCommerce vs. BigCommerce

Search trends over time

Having been part of the Shopify story since 2006, it’s hard at times to comprehend the rapid growth of the Shopify ecosystem.

When looking at Google search trends, it’s interesting to see the crossover of Shopify vs. Magento in October 2016—with Shopify continuing to climb and Magento trending downwards.

It will be interesting to see if WooCommerce catches up with Shopify or growth continues to flatten—and eventually declines.

Search trends by region

Looking at the searches by region, it’s clear there are huge opportunities for growth outside of the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa—where Shopify appears to have dominated over the past 5 years.
