In the world of online shopping, how websites feel and work for you is super important. They play a pivotal role in shaping our purchasing decisions and overall satisfaction.

In this article, we explored the world of UX of two of the giant names in the e-commerce industry: Shopify VS. WooCommerce.

Check out below the UX stories we prepared and see how a good UX for an e-commerce software make shopping more than just clicking buttons!


Rachel 🙋‍♀️ excitedly started using Shopify,

but she hit a ❌ roadblock...

Her main homepage image lacked a clear button didn't have a clear button to click,

leaving visitors lost!

"This is frustrating!"🤦‍♀️

This issue shows how vital a smooth UX is for users of apps, like Spotify.

Like organizing a real store 🏬,

with a user-friendly app,

Rachel can make her online shop both attractive and functional,

helping visitors find exciting products to buy with ease. 💯


Emily 🙋, a passionate artisan, has opted for WooCommerce 👩💻to pursue her online business dreams.

However, while exploring the platform's possibilities,

she struggled 😓with complicated settings and technical steps during the setup.

She felt confused 🤯 and didn't know where to begin during the first setup.

This left her feeling frustrated 🥵, as she did not expect it to be this complicated.

If only the onboarding process of the software is simplified and user-friendly ✅,

This would have been an exciting and satisfying experience for Emily.

Interactive tutorials and a thoughtful design would have made a huge difference!
