Much will depend on what your objective is. If you are looking to create an online catalogue/purchase point for existing customers, or those you drive there yourself, doesn't matter drastically which option you choose, as long as this works in all browsers, is easy for visitors to use and looks okay.
Should you be trying to build a business on search traffic, be very careful on system choice and to be frank on the decision itself. You will be entering a hard sector, where only the best succeed and will need to match them. This means having a site that can be optimised to truly compete and that is unlikely to be a sitebuilder, or WYSIWYG.
There are any number of shop platforms available, often along the lines of click here Not a particular recommendation, just an example and in any event, much customisation and control will still be required.
The above may sound negative but bear in mind there are about 45000 new web shops created every month and only a handful that succeed. Of course you don't need to compete against all of them, just those sector, language and perhaps geographically relevant. Even so, a task which needs considerable application and skill.
Many web operations have stopped taking shops on and the good ones that do warn site owners about the likely work and/or cost involved. Good luck whatever you decide but don't expect too much until you have been through quite a learning curve, or spent quite a budget if you are outsourcing.
