    Title says Wordpress - so i am presuming it is that. As mentioned above Woocommerce is still the default "go to" for your standard ecom store within WP, but if your product range is based on subscriptions / digital content then there are other free plugins which are probably much better suited.

    Maybe you could come back and let us know what you average product type is / whether it has variants etc

    Since you’re a beginner and if this is a super simple shop you want built i would highly suggest sitting through an hour long youtube video on how to build a Woocommerce website.

    Why don't you try GoDaddy first? I mean, it's also one of the best platforms to build a reliable website that pays.

    GoDaddy is absolutely useless for anyone serious about their business online.

    I'd strongly advise any members on here to not use them for anything at all (domains, hosting, site builder etc).

    Sorry - just realised this was in the thread's title!

    In that case, what type of products are you selling?

    If you must stick with WordPress then WooCommerce is your best option but there may be simpler options if you're only selling a very small number of products (for example if you were only selling a few digital products you may instead use the Easy Digital Downloads plugin).

    WooCommerce as above. Plenty of themes and plugins available and a vast community.

    It's an everlasting question. But I decided to go another way and experimenting with a new platform Ashop Co. It's free and very easy to use.

    But only if you want to sell on amazon. Which isn’t what was asked.

    Are you kidding? Stay away from Godaddy if you want to build a real eCommerce store. Expensive cost with many limitations.

    Hello! Are you planning to start a Single Vendor Store or Multi-vendor Marketplace with WordPress?

    Both could be very easy if you are on the right platform and plugins. Right now, I would recommend you to try WordPress with Easy Digital Downloads. It's one of the best eCommerce platforms to try out. With its essential plugins, it could definitely turn your WordPress website into an eCommerce store, with the right features.

    Just go into some more research and you will get there! :)

    Not if you want to sell socks or fenceposts.

    Aaaaagghhh, now you tell me. You can't sell fence posts as a download? Another business idea down the drain. I thought it would cut down on delivery costs.
