Shopify is the premier ecommerce platform for setting up an online store. It’s very strong in almost every area and works great for both small and large catalogs of products.

Squarespace is the choice of people who love beautiful clean design. Their templates are generally minimalist and allow the user to showcase their products and services in a beautiful light. Getting set up is not difficult, although their extension/app store is very small compared to Shopify and BigCommerce.
