    I am looking to start a ecommerce store and I only have 1 main product to sell, along with 3-4 accessories. I was thinking of using wordpress, but I am still not too comfortable with using wordpress as a ecommerce store. Was thinking magento, but at the same time, it seems to be an overkill platform for just 3-4 products total. FYI, i am selling physical product. Please help me out here. :)

    Whats wrong with shopperpress, I find it great and easy to setup for this kind of thing.

    Other than that you could try bigcommerce, nice solution there.

    I just think that WP ecommerce backend is a little weak. It doesnt have module developed for the couriers i m planning to use for example...

    If you're not wanting to use WordPress which is what I would've recommended and you're not looking to take too much time to build a custom site just to sell 1 product, try out the E-Commerce templates at Wix which are fully customizable with the $9.99 per month upgrade or use an E-Commerce template from GoDaddy's "Website Tonight". I believe GoDaddy offers a 1 page site for free but if not you can upgrade your package for a pretty nominal fee. I hope this helps!

    I read Magento is good. But heavy on coding. Depends on the size that you think the platform will be. Prestshop I heard is a good solution too

    Magento is professional platform, and have requirement on server and bandwidth, but really good if u have loads of products to sell! However, if you don't have lots of products, and no coding experience, then wordpress is perfect option! I can help set up a wordpress store, powered with woocommerce plugin, perfectly compatible and professional layout and looking! If interested, please try to contact me! Cheers:)))

    Big Cartel is a great option, I used it for quite some time happily.
