Both options are good, but you could always start out with Shopify on a smallish monthly plan, and then decide later if you’d prefer to spend $5,000 on something else. It wouldn’t work out so favourably the other way around.

Just keep in mind that depending on your web developer, it’s quite possible that $5,000 can quickly grow into something much more, and there’s always the risk that you could end up with a dodgy web developer if you’re not careful.

Personally, I’m a big fan of Shopify and think it’s such good value for the money, provided it’s making you money. There are plenty of add-ons available and you can customise it however you want, If you have a problem, 99% of the time you can simply Google it and find a simple solution.
