Use of Magento is a good idea to create an ecommerce store. Magento is an open source ecommerce software which is free to install and integrate. You only need a design ready for your ecommerce website and integrate that into Magento after installing it on your web server.

Magento has many advantages and offers multiple functionality to ecommerce store owners.

If you are new to owning an e-commerce website and you want something that will be quite easy to get used to, then I suggest you try installing WordPress on your server, combined with the WooCommerce plugin. This will give you a free e-commerce solution, and using WordPress together with WooCommerce will also give you a lot of flexibility when it comes to customizing your online store.

Every business wants to boost their bottom lines and must have an ecommerce website to target more consumers shopping online. If you have plans to start an ecommerce website, then you can choose to use the WooCommerce, which is a WordPress plugin.

This is best for small or medium sized stores and is completely customizable and also has a good shopping cart and secured payment gateway. It offers various themes to choose from and it also offers an extremely intuitive admin panel that anyone can understand.

If your business is large, then you can use Magento development as it offers amazing features, a high level of security and is fully customizable and scalable. It also scores pretty well on other parameters like user friendly admin area, SEO, mobile friendliness
and etc.

This is an old question, recently revived. But, to echo the others, start with Magento, keep an eye on security when creating your site and best of all, if you can, do the work yourself, don't use a third party to build your site for you.
