Opencart is nice. Easy to use. Been using it a couple years.

I'm moving on though to woocommerce because I also like to blog using Wordpress and the two come together seamlessly.

I'm building a new website right now on Shopify and so far I'm very happy.

Thanks a lot for sharing guys! For these past days I have decided to use Wordpress and WooCommerce as the platform for eCommerce, but here's the thing... Now when I installed WordPress, I need a nice layout for my website, and I don't have much money, to be honest... So I just wanted to start out with something not so expensive and neat and then proceed to something better looking both design-wise and functionality-wise.
Do you use ready-made solutions? Does anyone know of any suitable free/lowcost themes I could use? Maybe someone has had this experience!

I use themes from woothemes. They make woocommerce so the themes are pretty much gauranteed not to have any compatibility issues. They have a handful of free themes that look pretty decent.

Hello, guys! I like using Shopify a lot for my projects. It is a very handy CMS with lots of great templates for it. For example, on http://www.templatemonster.com/shopify-themes.php website. It simplifies all the processes and you can build great websites

I used Out of the Sandbox for my theme:
https://outofthesandbox.com/

I used their Responsive theme for my site. I had a few questions as I went and just using the search function on their site answered most of them. I had two questions I posted in their help section and both were answered quickly. Very easy to use and great customer support.

I also tried a TemplateMonster theme for my website creation. I chose one of the diving lessons wordpress themes and I was pleased with the result as my site has a great design and is perfectly viewed on any mobile device. Also it was easy to work with it.

I've been using Shopify for my website and store for a year now. I used to use Wordpress but found Shopify less maintenance and alot faster. After the initial setup all I have to do is add product and sell. I like the way it links up with Facebook and Instagram.
