Should I use WooCommerce for a store with 100 SKUs?

    I have been running an online store on Ebay for a long time. Now, I want to start my own ecommerce store for selling handcrafted items. To start with, my store will have 100 SKUs. I am thinking of trying WooCommerce since it is pretty easy to setup, but I have heard there can be issues with its performance. On the other hand, I am also thinking about trying out Magento since it has lots of features and good performance. What do you think? Which platform should I use for my store?

    Yeah woocommerce would be an excellent choice for 100 sku's. Magento is a bit heavy and really built for larger ecommerce stores in my opinion. In terms of overall cost, value, and simplicity woocommerce wins hands down.

    Second the above. I've had experience with both Woo and Magento (plus BigCommerce and Shopify). Magento is a beast I would personally avoid unless you need something really custom that requires you use it. WooCommerce is way lighter and easier to use and you could be up and running in a day. For a store of 100 SKUs I would definitely choose Woo over Magento.
