WooCommerce

WooCommerce is also a ecommerce site builder which is powered by WordPress. There is more features than Shopnix but this will be little more costly, because of its advanced features. Just create an account to WordPress and buy any plan which is include woocommerce and then start. I never tried woocommerce before. But here you can create a Sell On feature like all other branded and popular websites. So go to wordpress for more informations.

Abantecart

And this is the Free, Open source app to create your online shopping website. In short I am telling you the process, how to use Abantecart.

Go to infinityfree.net and create an account. Buy a domain and add to it. And then it will take some time to active your account. After account activate, just click on Go to Control Panel and then go to Softaculous Installer and choose ecommerce category and fill the details and click on Install and wait some time to finish installation then go to Admin Panel. I think it’s too quick, just watch this video that I already have created

Now you got it. Also you can change the default theme, but then you have to pay money.

Abantecart is not an Indian software that is it dont’ has any Indian Payment services, but hope very soon it will be launch.
