I am highly interested in starting my own e-commerce store. However, it is hard to know where to start. I have a multiple products, a website design (paper/pencil/excel), and a can-do attitude. I've researched a lot and between the common e-commerce site builders (WixEcomm, SquareSpace, and Shopify) and WordPress, I am not sure where to start.
I am willing to learn WordPress if the quality of the site is that much superior to those of the site builders. But, I also wanted to reach out to this community and ask if these are truly the beginning stages or if there are other methods of creation I should be taking into account.
What avenue did you venture down to produce your first e-commerce site? How did it go and what would you have done differently?
