    You don’t need an app for variants in Shopify. You just add them in the product page.

    Yep I know that but thats about it. I can't offer things like UK plug (radio box) or extra warranty checkbox etc etc without extra apps.

    Then I agree magento is totally overkill.

    Shopify isn't going to deliver what you want so bin them off the list. Bigcommerce might do the job but as I said before, I found it very restrictive.

    I'll point back to woocommerce again. For a low number of SKUs it's ideal and setting up variants is a doddle. If you want someone to look after it for you to keep it all updated there are plenty of providers. All you have to do is manage the orders.

    From my personal experience, I think Shopify is better. Also, you can compare the Pro and Cons of the two, which soloves the problems that bother you greatly.

    We have decided to discount Shopify. I found that everything seems to require an app and the costs are mounting up with the functionality we need.

    Currently we are testing BigCommerce and looking at options for a managed Magento instance.

    Can I ask, why not WooCommerce? Just out of interest.
