The Internet has come a long way in the last couple of decades. You no longer have to shell out large amounts of cash to create a custom online store. There are now plenty of eCommerce vendors that can help you put together your online store, and for a fraction of the cost that it would be for you to hire a professional to create it for you. These online vendors can take the headache and the hassle of hard coding, hosting, and carrying out maintenance on a server of your own out of the online store equation, says Julian Barkat, director of e-commerce and online marketing at Eggs to Apples. You still get to design the overall look and feel of your online store but leave the technical stuff up to their staff of experts.
