Starting your own website has never been easier. For quite some time, thanks to new online software, people have been able to create simple blogs and websites using free tools.
But how does creating an online store differ from a traditional website? While there are a few different things to consider, there are multiple tools available online to help you set up an e-commerce site simply and easily.
Step 1: Choose a service/builder
Many of the website-building services offer options for building online stores. Wix Stores, Wordpress and Weebly all offer e-commerce website functionality. You can also use dedicated services, such as Shopify, which specifically create online storefronts.
The best service for your needs depends on your own website-building skills, your budget and how much you want to customise your e-commerce site.
