    I think that first of all you need to decide which niche will you occupy and then learn your potential competitors and only then decide what to do and which platform to use

    Selling what? Who are your target audience? How much do you need to make each month? How much are you willing to spend each month in pursuit of your business dream?
    What is your current online status? Is this going to be a full time business or a part time just to make a few £$? Where will you source your merchandise from?

    I would also recommend setting up your own e-commerce store , this is very easy to do , simply find a great domain name then build a business around that

    I would suggest that if you are serious about getting an online store, you need to think beyond Amazon and eBay. Sure those are great places that you can use to draw in traffic and get some more exposure, but at the same time, all your competitors might be posting as well. Get your own website, that is the way to go.

    For an online store you'll need any product for which you are going to create online store. Secondly you’ll need a website where visitors will land and the finally a great business plan. It'll help you to take your business forwarded. Don’t for get to register your business.

    The web sites that you mentioned are all great. Have you already decided what kind of products will you be selling? Also, don't forget that advertising is important in online selling. Reach out to as many prospective customers as you can.

    Well First you need to tell us about your business. Before starting a business. A long term planning required. From these platforms Amazon is my favorite followed by ebay.. i have not used wwcws yet.

    You don't need to start your own site to start. The best thing if it is hand made items is to sell on www.Etsy.com. This site is like Ebay for homemade items.

    You must have a solid plan for your online shop, hmm, if you're not that experienced, try to ask those who tried to have a business already.

    You can build your website in Wordpress, but while designing the website keep SEO as the 1st priority for the website architecture. There are various plugins are available for Wordpress, you can use those to create a clean architecture of your website.
