1.Firstly you need to check other e-commerce websites,Register with them use the site and see how it works because you need to know how it works first before you can start building it. 2. Before you can successfully build a good and working e-commerce website u should be good with your PHP, Javascript, MySQL and also you should know how to work with AJAX because it will be demanding when you want to do something without refreshing the whole page. 3. Another important thing to note is that u need to know how to NORMALIZE your database, how to organize your file i.e separating the UI from the CONTROLLER, always search for safest and secured ways to write your codes. 4. Finally, You can learn how to use WORDPRESS, Django to build things using their plugins but this will only make you lazy and you will not be a good developer, always build from scratch. HAPPY CODING👍👍👍👍 and GOOD LUCK!
