    If you are planning for an ecommerce website, the type of platform depends upon the requirement of your business and the flexiblity you are loking for. Generally PHP would be the best choice to go for. It is easy to learn and is very flexible to work with. A lot of popular websites are developed using PHP. Talking about the platforms, WordPress along with Woocommerce would be the best bet. Platforms like Magento and Prestashop are other popular choices. If you are familar with Java and .NET you can use them to build the ecommerce website. However it is quite complicated in comparison to languages like PHP.

    Use Joomla for ecommerce website!!

    Joomla Joomla! The CMS Trusted By Millions for their Website is a free and open-source content management system (CMS) for publishing web content. It is built on a model–view–controller web application framework that can be used independently of the CMS.

    Joomla is written in PHP, uses object-oriented programming (OOP) techniques (since version 1.5[2]) and software design patterns,[3] stores data in a MySQL, MS SQL (since version 2.5), or PostgreSQL (since version 3.0) database,[4][5] and includes features such as page caching, RSS feeds, printable versions of pages, news flashes, blogs, search, and support for language internationalization.


    As of February 2014, Joomla has been downloaded over 50 million times.[6] Over 7,700 free and commercial extensions are available from the official Joomla! Extension Directory, and more are available from other sources.[7] It is estimated to be the second most used content management system on the Internet, after WordPress

    EShop is a powerful & responsive Joomla Shopping Cart / e-Commerce extension. It is built based on the standard Joomla! MVC structure with many great features, user friendly and easy to customize.
    You simply install, add products, enable built-in modules, payment plugins, shipping plugins and you are ready to start accepting orders.

    Instead of writing everything from scratch try shopify or Woocommerce

    Hello,

    Do you still need help? . My suggestion is to use WordPress with Woo Commerce Plugin as WordPress is the biggest CMS of todays time because of its easy to installation as well lite backend which makes it easier for editing without any programming background. I am a designer and developer . If you want more help then you can ask.

    Thanks
