Hi @fingers,

The easiest way would be using a WordPress website with e-commerce plugins. Another possibility would be Magento. Luckily, both can be found in the MarketPlace:

https://marketplace.digitalocean.com/apps/wordpress

https://marketplace.digitalocean.com/apps/magento-2-open-source

You just need to decide which one you would want to use. Both come with Droplets preconfigured with everything needed to work, you just need to add your Domain and start developing.

Rather than reinventing the wheel with this one, I would use a prefab solution.

If you have a website, and just want integrations, Ecwid might be the thing for you.

If you are wanting an e-commerce solution wrapped around a CMS, WooCommerce might be a better solution.
