How to build a e-commerce website

Hello everyone, I’m new to web programming and I’ve been studying react. Now that I have a basic understanding of how to build an e-commerce website, I want to get started. If you have any resources you’d like to share with me regarding designing database schema for applications or how to design the overall user interface for e-commerce websites, please don’t hesitate to do so.
I appreciate you.


I would just like to chip in, maybe save you some unnecessary headache. Is a custom ecommerce shop really what you need? There are plenty of platforms that can get your shop up and selling in no time and they work just fine. Coding your own shop from scratch is really time consuming and if the needs of the project don’t require some really specific features and modifications, I’d save the hassle. Get the shop running and then maybe code your own custom version on the side. As I’ve learnt - not everything I build is better than the ready made solution :smiley:

Anyways, as far as resources are concerned, I’d recommend a book “Desing for Hackers” by David Kadavy to help you better understand design and user interfaces.

Wish you good luck!
