    I have a 1 product site.
    Is there any cheap alternative to have a e commerce store and card payment processor apart from shopify ( Shopify Basic costs $29 monthly (and 2.9% + 30¢ per transaction). The Shopify plan is $79 monthly (and 2.6% + 30¢ per transaction) or should I stick with that ?
    It's only just 1 physical product.

    Thank you !

    Is it better to use their a2 hosting at 4-5 $ /month ?
    It says
    • OpenCart is automatically setup for you
    • Hosting optimized for OpenCart websites

    WooCommerce is your best option.

    WooCommerce. Or if shopify development stores still work, take a look at that. Shopify is easiest to manage, worth it in my opinion.

    I just installed the Opencart software via my cPanel, it is part of the Softaculous group on my hosting package. It takes 2 minutes to install, more time to customize but works good for our sites. We run many with OpenCart and it is easy to customize.

    WooCommerce for sure! A very good and popular theme is Shopkeeper, where you can practically do whatever you want.

    The Woo option is way cheaper and yet powerful enough for your needs. Just pay for hosting which you can find a plethora of hosters online. Tons of plugins to satisfy your customizations, mostly which are free. I switched long time ago. Never looked back.
