Another major difference between Magento and Shopify is their pricing structures. Magento is open source and free, while Shopify is a hosted solution with a monthly subscription fee. This means that the cost to get a site up and running on Magento will be higher than with Shopify, especially when taking into account hosting costs, security costs (such as SSL certificates), and transaction fees for payment gateways.
