Business-minded new media megalith Mashable road-tested some of the internet’s best ecommerce solutions for small businesses. These websites, which are user-friendly and DIY, allow businesses to take their wares onto the internet with a variety of options to choose from.
Big Cartel: For individuals and small vendors who sell limited inventory, Big Cartel ‘s flat rate (starting at $9.99 for 25 products) doesn’t take a percentage of sales revenues and links directly with a PayPal account.
Shopify: One of the oldest and most popular solutions for merchants selling a variety of products, Shopify ‘s price ranges from $29 to $699 for month. The service can accommodate a lot of inventory, but it also charges a transaction fee for all but its largest plan.
Big Commerce: Another high-volume sales service, Big Commerce  is a little less expensive than Shopify, ranging from $49 to $299 per month. The top two plans are unlimited, and the service includes tools for selling on Ebay and Facebook.
Volusion: An all-in-one hosted ecommerce service, Volusion ‘s price range from $25 to $149 per month and follow very similarly to Big Commerce’s options. Volusion users have round-the-clock support and access to free design templates as well as customized design and marketing services.
Vendder: Vendder ‘s easy installation allows users to set up a store front in minutes, and even offers a free plan that allows a merchant to sell up to 15 products. The highest option is $49 per month for 500 products, and there are no additional transaction fees. This service is best for small businesses on a tight budget.
