@PaulHoza Sorry I was AFK when you sent that message. Couldn't have put it better than @janus-reith did. Building something on Reaction will take more time and effort than WordPress, and the maintenance will reflect that too.
It's simple: Reaction is not a CMS.
It's a framework-type solution that focuses on developer productivity. Most things you will find built-in on many solutions will have to be custom-made with Reaction (for example search is not built-in at the moment). It's a totally different approach.
Typically, companies considering Reaction would not even think about WordPress as an option. The comparison would rather be "build from scratch vs. Reaction Commerce", or against some other enterprise-focused solutions like Hybris, OroCommerce, Salesforce Commerce Cloud etc.
That being said, if you've factored in time, effort, budget, maintenance, hosting, and your clients are still okay with that, then you can't go wrong with Reaction.
