Hi Narendra, As your opinion, I also written about build eCommerce website from scratch at Linkedin Pulse. If your intresting just read the info. https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/how-build-ecommerce-website-from-scratch-ramesh-m

And Consider few things to start eCommerce website using any source.

Good website: It is very important to start off with a feature rich, secure website so that people trust you.
SEO and social media friendly: These free sources will offer a constant traffic to your website. Adding social sharing button to your website will give you more visibility.
Define target area: Start with small. It is always advisable to start your business with a focus on a limited area. This will help you focus all your energy on a particular market and building a stable brand name.
Customize accordingly: What works in one city might not work in the other city so take care of the local favorites and customize your offerings so that it has something for everyone.
Payment options: Provide various payment options to customers on your website as every customer may have a different preference.
Mobile friendly: Your audience will want to access your website when on the move this will increase your reach.

As I have 6 years of experience in eCommerce development (http://www.contus.com/ecommerce-web-development.php) I can say for sure that these are the primary things to start eCommerce website.
