Conclusion

The main statistical competitor of Magento is Woo Commerce, though, in a global perspective Magento leads. At the same time, we cannot compare these two platforms, as Magento is a standalone e-commerce solution with a great amount of features and functionalities, allowing you to customize your online shop, and requiring a developer in your team; while Woo Commerce is an open-source e-commerce plugin for WordPress, it is quite simple and is a perfect match for beginners.
