    I see it is an old thread, but it is not answered. I would not recommend doing e-commerce on free web hosting. Free web hosting is not that reliable as paid. You will face more downtime, slower page loading time and etc. that means that you will loose profit because of that. So go for paid shares hosting first and if your business grow go for DS or VPS.

      I would suggest a custom domain name for your E-commerce business website.

        I agree with RH-Calvin, you need a custom domain name for your online store. It is better to make your brand a success with your own domain name. Thus, free hosting is not really a good choice for an eCommerce site. Besides, a free hosting plan doesn't come with decent support and is usually slower than a paid web hosting plan.

          Hi there,

          No, completely not. I would suggest you go for cheaper plans instead of free ones. Free hosting is really not advisable especially for an ecommerce website.

            Try to look for a solution to your problem on the Shopify website forum. If I'm not mistaken, they have several topics on this subject.

              Free website builders, such as Wix or Weebly, can be a good option for creating a simple ecommerce website, but they may have limitations when it comes to advanced ecommerce features and customization options.

              Some potential drawbacks of using a free website builder for ecommerce include:
              • Limited customization options: Free website builders typically have a limited set of templates and design options, which can make it difficult to create a unique and professional-looking website.
              • Limited ecommerce functionality: Free website builders may not offer all the features and tools that are needed to run a successful ecommerce business, such as inventory management, shipping and tax calculation, and marketing integrations.
              • Limited scalability: Free website builders may not be able to handle large amounts of traffic or transactions, which can be a problem as your business grows.
              • Limited support: With a free website builder, you may not have access to the same level of customer support as you would with a paid service.

              That being said, if you're just starting out and have a limited budget, a free website builder can be a good way to get your ecommerce business off the ground. But it is important to keep in mind that as your business grows, you may need to upgrade to a paid service that offers more advanced features and customization options.
