Mostly because WordPress runs (last time I checked) like 30% of the sites on the web, and WooCommerce is built by the same company.

If you have a Wordpress site, WooCommerce gives you a way of integrating a store.  It's plugin software that enhances your self hosted Wordpress.  If your business is run off Wordpress, then it is a good solution.

Shopify is Software as a Service/Platform as a Service.  You are paying to have your store, and perhaps your entire site hosted and run within the Shopify infrastructure.

Ecommerce giants don't use either of these platforms, so the number of downloads or customers really don't matter, other than to provide confidence that there will be support for either platform.

I agree with gizmola comments & to add one note:

* If you or client doesn't want the hassle of trying to figure out alot of the configurations that's required with WP (itself) and WooCommerce, then Shopify a good option (pretty easy to setup & manage).

However, there comes the difference w/the two - you'll pay (Shopify) for that ease-of-use vs getting WP & WooCommerce (pretty much) setup at little to no cost.
