    No, HTML and CSS is not enough for E-commerce website. You need at least one programming language like PHP along with JavaScript (jQuery) for more interactive site.

    Html/css for styling your design of a web page PHP for dynamic functions, and most important is MySQL for data base functions to store your data. I prefer opencart, magneto, prestashop for creating fully functional ecommerce.

    1.Does HTML / CSS can fulfill all needs ? or does it require PHP too?
    The building-blocks is: front-end + back-end + a payment-gateway. When a user visits your site, your PHP (as the back-end processor at your server) might "prints" a page and send it to this user's browser (front-end). So this page (in HTML format) provides the very basic interraction between both ends. PHP may also need database support, e.g. mySQL to save data coming from that interraction. If this interraction involves e-commerce however, you need to use service from a payment-gateway e.g. Authorize.net, etc. Why? because the interraction between you and your user now becomes a commercial transaction between your bank and your user's credit-card provider and it needs to be validated and secure.

    2. Does there is any SEO effect depending on programming language.
    As far as I know, SEO and e-commerce are 2 different animals.

    Good luck!

    To build the Store - NO it is not enough
    To build the store design and website without the functionality - yes it is
    But if you need the full e-commerce functionality you will need additional PHP, javascript and other scripts related programming tasks and knowledges

    Does there is any SEO effect depending on programming language - even if it effect it will not be a significant issue - yes Google stated before that they will prefer and rank better a CMS based websites as they are towarded to the global clients area ( don't require programming knowledges) but as it seems they care more for the content, domains, speed, urls, and Off page SEO as we as the Social Activity and Mobile Friendly designs
    3. Does any one can say on which language the site is coded if i show any example site.

    Yes HTML5/Css3 is enough to create a static web store.
    But not the dynamic 1.
    You need a server side central database to store products and transaction information etc.

    Instead of creating a whole new E-commerce script and struggling with bugs and insecure loopholes (as your E-commerce site will be having payment gateway), I would suggest to go with pre-built SOURCE CODES of e-commerce systems like magento, woo commerce etc. as they are tested and trusted ones. Creating own script might leave some security loopholes which is dangerous for payment processing.

    And for the programming languages, i will 2nd to the hdewantara:

    Better go with some Content Management System for these kind of projects.
    My suggestion would be Magento (Suitable for Large sites but slow)
    woo commerce is fast

    You can use css, html for static store then redirect buyer to paymet gateway (like paypal button).
    I'll use Opencart for small shop.

    CSS 3 & HTML are Structure and presentation
    PHP is engine.

    if your site is just for presentation? CSS 3 & HTML are okay
    If you need to some functions like shopping cart and login members area on same site?,
    You need both Html & PHP scripts
    I hope this helps to understand

    HTML and CSS are only used to build to static website and if you want to build dynamic website you have to learn PHP, javascript.

    All you need to build a custom online store is knowledge of HTML, PHP, CSS and MySQL

    You cannot escape MySQL because that is what you will need to relate with the Database. Hope this help.
