The best free ecommerce website builders for small businesses #StartUps

The best free ecommerce software

Ecommerce software operates as an open-source platform that you can install for free.

Open-source software is computer software released under a licence that gives anyone access to the source code, and allows them to use, change, or distribute it for any purpose.

This means it’s only suitable if you’re planning to self-host your website, by which we mean pay for hosting services separately.

This means that, while the software is free, there’ll be additional ongoing costs.

Unlike with the above platforms, we haven’t conducted thorough user testing on the following ecommerce software providers, but we’ve done in-depth research and selected three of the best.


Let’s get one thing straight: Magento is not for beginners. It’s a formidable product, offering unrivalled scalability, customizability, and capability for online stores with grand ambitions.

Used by big name retailers like Nike and Samsung, Magento is an extremely advanced ecommerce platform with the capacity to handle thousands of transactions a minute. It incorporates a next-level drag-and-drop page builder, business intelligence services, multiple sales and advertising channels, and countless third party integrations.

With Magento, you can create the online store you’ve always dreamed of – but if you don’t have any development skills, or you haven’t hired a developer, those dreams will be hard to achieve.

It all comes down to how much you’re willing to invest in your online store. It might be free to download, but you’re going to end up spending a lot on hosting and development. HostGator actually has a Magento-specific plan.
