When comparing solutions make sure you keep your own needs front of mind, as it is very easy to opt for a solution that is a lot more than you really need. That said, let’s check out 5 e-Commerce solutions that are suitable for startups.

5 Terrific E-Commerce Solutions for startups

Volusion – A great solution for startups as it is supremely affordable, starting at $15 per with no transaction fees and a free 14-day trial period. Volusion offers a website builder, hosting and a shopping cart. They have a number of SEO features built into the platform, as well as professional templates and 24/7 support.

Square Market – This choice will provide you with a way to get your storefront up in minutes, with a wealth of features including personalized store logo and images, flexible promotional codes, adjustable tax rates, size and color options, social media links, online marketing tools, mobile-ready storefronts and more. There are also no monthly fees, and merchants are charged 2.75% per sale.

Shopify – Another entry-level solution that gives a 14-day free trial, and charges $14 a month with no transaction fees. With over 100 templates to pick from, Shopify is drop-dead easy to set up, and Shopify Mobile (Shopify’s own mobile credit card reader) and Shopify POS (Shopify’s iPad point-of-sale system) can make selling anywhere a reality.

WooCommerce – If you use WordPress as many of us are, one of the better choices available is WooCommerce, which easily integrates into your existing WordPress site, and can still take advantage of the many plugins and advantages WordPress has to offer.

BigCommerce – One of the bigger dogs in the fight, BigCommerce features a wealth of features, and is slightly more complex than some of the others we’ve been talking about. This may be a step above your needs and is a solution aimed at mid to high volume businesses. Still modestly priced though at $29.95 with a 1.5% transaction fee for starters.
