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 Crimson Pixel Ecommerce which can be quickly embedded in any site with low cost start up and easy to manage low monthly payment, or something more flexible which will cost more inititally to develop but have fewer ongoing costs then the options are Prestashop or Commerce.
