    Hey there,

    I want to create a web-store for a few products (mostly fashion stuff).

    What is the easiest way to create one? I've seen Weebly has good themes and options for web-stores (carts, checkout, inventory management), but it costs 20$ a month.
    Is there an alternative to it that is as easy? Or better?

    Wordpress would be nice, but I haven't found any good free themes, and the nice ones are all paid. Plus the inventory management part I have simply no idea how I would do it in Wordpress.

    Any tips or suggestions? Should I go with Weebly?

    Thanks!

    I would say that free options might not be easy to find, but if you already have a wordpress site, then that makes things much easier...you can just type woocommerce in the search bar here in the forum and you should be able to get some themes from them
    Here are some of the themes I like
    ShopPress
    RGB Store
    Humble Shop
    OSComm
    Bazar Shop
    BigShop WooCommerce Responsive WordPress Theme
    WillowPillow High Conversion WordPress eCommerce Theme
    etc
    I should say though that these are paid ones, if you want everything up until check out, then woocommerce platform is all you need. And of course paypal or any other payment processor...

    If you just want something simple that works, Shopify. If you got a few products, I think it's less than 10 then it's only $14 a month. Built in processing and everything, just add the products, add your bank, and you're good to go.

    I'd only use WordPress for eCommerce if your main focus is a blog and secondary eCommerce. If your main focus is eCommerce then go with eCommerce software, not blogging software with an add on.
