Hey, I have a wholesale business and I am wondering, should I go for Woocomerece or Shopify?

My online store will be dedicated to wholesale buyers (B2B) who will buy in bulk, and I won't even put the prices on my website but I will just make it easier for my clients to make an order online rather than calling me or emailing me the products they want. then I send them the price by email and they will pay by a bank transfer.

I do have some WordPress experience as I run several blogs for over 10 years. But I am wondering which one would be better and more suitable for a B2B platform? would my current WordPress experience be sufficient to run a WooCommerce site?

Agreed, woocommerce would be the way to go for me.

It may have a bit of a learning curve, but i've had a quite a few people reply that they loved woocommerce better than shopify once they learned woocommerce. If shopify has a free trial, i'd say give both a try and figure out which migth be best suited for you.

As far as experience, being familiar with wordpress is certainly a +.

It is necessary to take and do, since there is such a desire, to create your own website. To develop your business. If you want to open your own online store. And to be more specific. Then to create a site on WooCommerce there is the possibility of individual page settings.

In my opinion shopify is much better since it has more functions and larger audience, but if you want to create your own personal site and do absolutely everything as you like, then of course woocommerce gonna fit you well, since you creating sites from 0 in there
