Best eCommerce Platform for configurable products

    Hello everyone!

    For a little while i've been testing some eCommerce platforms to figure out which one fits best for the ecommerce business i want to start, but i can't find the right one...
    SEMrush
    I like building PC's and would like to start a small business.

    I want to start with basically only selling a PC. Not just a pre-build PC, but i want my customers to configure their own one on the website/online store. I want them to choose:
    • Case
    • Motherboard
    • CPU [Processor]
    • GPU [Graphics Card] (if no integrated GPU)
    • RAM [Memory]
    • Storage Device (SSD, NVME SSD, HDD)
    • Cooling (CPU, Chassis)
    • PSU [Power Supply Unit]
    • Display device, Monitor
    • Operating System
    Out of a selection of 5-10 products for each part. Of course not every part is compatible with for example every motherboard or case, so i want to be able to put in some rules to exclude particular products when a certain motherboard/case has been chosen.

    There are loads of other businesses who offer a similar product, such as:
    originpc.com/configurator/chronos-v2/
    pcspecialist.co.uk/computers/amd-am4-gen3-pc/

    does anyone have an idea which ecommerce platform would be best for me to start with?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hello, Patrick,
    I would like to help. so in my opinion best way will be your own shoptify website. or you can also list on ebay but you need to have a store I believe to offer such a customization. Once you establish some sales history of 6 months to a year on any of these platform, you can also try amazon. in beginning will be hard to sell on amazon because they have restrictions on some category in your case it will be computer and parts.

    I hope this helped you. Looking forward to visit your online store in future.

    Choosing the best ecommerce platform for configurable products would be the easiest part but the experience in selling built pc or configured pc would be the hardest part because you need to be well experienced in users journey for you to accommodate your customers query and satisfy them in the long run.
