To successful build your online store - do some ground work
Building an ecommerce presence takes time and a lot of effort. Getting the fundamentals right will help smooth the process.
Firstly you need to consider your budget for building your online store, whether you want a quick and easy solution then you might like to consider ShopWired , or something more flexible which will cost more inititally to develop but have fewer ongoing costs then the options are Prestashop or Commerce.
With Prestashop you can have a full blown online ecommerce store with thousands of products which can target a wide audience whether that is local or global, and has an active community which helps to extend and improve performance, store management and ROI. With Prestashop you can quickly build a site yourself with just a little knowledge, however, working in partnership with Crimson Pixel, it is possible to build a professional and dedicated online store.
Alternatively you may be looking for a smaller scale solution for a few hundred (or less) products, in which case have a bolt on store will probably provide a better solution. With MODX built websites there is now a premium package which provides the solution. There is a one off cost for the initial purchase of the licence and then the cost of configuration and integration.
