    I'm looking at potentially setting up a word press ecommerce site. I currently have looked at Shopify & other ecommerce website provider. I've been using the free version of Big Cartel for nearly 5 years & wondering what's best to upgrade to a paid package which goes upto $29 per month for 300 products or i'll probably start doing the $9.99 per month for 25 products.

    However it's quite clear to see that the overall look of my own wordpress or Shopify website would be much better for the look & feel of my website.

    Also the other factor I need to take into consideration on all websites is the SEO to bring traffic to my website including social media. Anyone got any thoughts?

    Below is both Big Cartel Website i've been creating so far, I don't like the actual layout but I feel it's limited to what I can do on Big Cartel. Any suggestions???

    Finally what are the possible costs to set up a wordpress website, including SEO, hosting etc

    Well I am of course biased and will say you should build on WordPress and WooCommerce.

    Especially if SEO, getting organic traffic from Google, is important to you.

    Plus you have all the flexibility to essentially do anything that you want with your website.

    Of course, Shopify is nice as well because its hands-off for the most part. WooCommerce has more moving parts to it.
