Need to pick a provider for a just starting our musical instruments seller. One of a kind stringed instruments, hand made and only a handful of customers right now. Wanting to build on that base of course. So is Jimdo relatively easy to use? Have enough tools to make your website look like you want it to? Any support issues?

Looking for real life experiences using this website builder. The good, the bad and the ugly please.

Look at Shopify, that Jimdo page just murdered the word "template" for me through semantic exhaustion. I'm guessing they mostly sell templates.

When you're looking at an e-commerce platform, think beyond your current needs. Something like Shopify, Bigcommerce, Magento, WooCommerce, etc. will have apps/extensions that let you connect platforms and streamline your operations. If you're hoping to get big enough to do a lot of shipping, you'll need to use an app like ShipStation to make shipping less of a find out which platforms connect to ShipStation?

I work for a company that makes one of these third-party apps, and I've never heard of Jimdo. It doesn't look like they have an app store or list of extensions. This is not the way to go.
