Post Please Give Me Advice On E-commerce

Hi guys. I recently created a website using a template site builder. It was the site gallery. But now I want to create an online store. Do you think if I use a site builders, it will be good for e-commerce? Who has experience with this?

It depends on a lot of factors, including what you're selling, who your customers are, how good you are at setting up ecommerce sites, how good you are at promoting the site, how much you know about conversion optimization, etc.

Whether you use a site builder or use a content management system or code the whole thing by hand in HTML is probably one of the least significant factors in whether an ecommerce site will be successful.

To find out more about the features and processes that are most often successful, you might want to try running some searches on topics such as "conversion optimization" and "user experience optimization". If your chosen website builder doesn't let you set things up the way you believe will work best for your customers, find another alternative. There are plenty of choices out there; no reason to use an option that makes it harder for you to close the sale.

It will definitely be a website that I create with the help of site builder. I probably will use Shopify template, because I'm still weak in HTML. But I still doubt. So I read a lot of information about it, ask questions on forums and analyze what is better to choose. I found an article about the best eCommerce website builders, read more. I would like to know who has experience in the use templating to create an online store. What a site builder did you use? And what success have you achieved?
I apologize for my bad english.

I was very nervous about using a template website. I finally decided on Shopify. It is really good for me - easy to manage, lots of features and cheap. I have an ecommerce store selling 8 products and I can't recommend it highly enough!
