Hello
I am doing 3D printing, and selling my 3D printed models (and other design stuff, like handmade money trees, and other stuff)
I want to create an e-commerce (online shop) that would also offer 3D printing services
What platform is best suited for my needs, and is easy to open and install?
I have never opened an online store before.

    If you've never built an eCommerce website, Shopify is undoubtedly the easiest to work with.

    If you dont know coding, shopify is the best choice.
    You can do it yourself, also the platform has seo advantage.

    Hey skydragon89,
    For e-commerce I would suggest you two e-commerce platforms: shopify and woocommerce. If you never used WordPress before then I would suggest you to check shopify ( paid monthly, price based on package ), but if you worked on WordPress then I would suggest you WooCommerce ( free but there are "hidden costs" ).

    If you've never opened an online store before, I'd recommend Shopify, it has a monthly fee for web hosting and very easy to use. They also make it easy add products, social marketing and apps.

    I think Yo!kart is the best option to create e-commerce (online shop). It's Easy and Hassle-Free.

    Shopify is user-friendly and honestly one of the easiest platforms to use. It shows you everything you need, all the stats and settings.

    On the other hand, you could use WooCommerce but it's a little bit more complex but you have more features, you can customize everything while with Shopify you're kind of limited.

    I am not a big fan of Shopify but for beginners It is quote good. Or better go with Woocommerce. Woocoomerce provides more flexibility for customization and you can own the code. Maintenance cost of Woocommerce is low as well.
    For the purpose of SEO as well, I feel that Woocommerce responds well than Shopify though it is generally accepted that platform does not make any difference to SEO.

    I 'm a beginner with no previous knowledge at wordpress or shopify. After watching several you tube videos and reading several articles, I made my first online store with wordpress-woocommerce. Lower maintenance costs and user friendly. It is worth the try.

    If you are beginner in eCommerce platform and want to build-up your online store then I would recommend Shopify. Shopify is one of the leaders in the e-commerce space, and perhaps the easiest-to-use tool to build your online store with. Their mission is to build a hassle-free platform for setting up your e-commerce business. You can organize your products, customize the way your store looks, accept payments (online and credit cards), track and respond to orders, and you can do it all within Shopify's interface.
