Shopify vs Bubble

Hi all,

I am hesitating between Bubble and Shopify to create my online store. It’s not a marketplace but a classic one-sided ecommerce with a few custom features (deposit and cash-back, coupons, local delivery and zone restrictions). I am a big fan of Bubble and it would allow me to have full control on my building but I am wondering:

  • whether I can really reach the same level of UX/UI (loading speed, checkout and payment simplicity, efficiency of filters and search with many products, …) as with shopify + plugins/custom code.
  • would it scale as well as a shopify store (I know a lot of shopify stores with more than 100k orders a year, any example with bubble?).

Thanks for your help !

As a huge Bubble advocate, I would recommend Shopify in this use-case. As this is what Shopify does best.

You can always start in Shopify, as your site will be built faster, and eventually if you ever wish to, switch to Bubble.

Thanks for your response.
It would require me some theme customization on shopify to get started, that would take some time too (custom deposit system). So I was not really considering the time needed to develop such a website but more what I can reach in terms of performance and customer experience with Bubble. I would like to do the best tech choice from the beginning !
