    It all depends on the amount of detail and professionalism of the final product. there are freelancers in India and elsewhere that will build you a site for next to nothing...but you will not likely get any results, the designs will be cookie cutter template designs, there will be no marketing strategy implemented into the designs, etc.

    My company www.newviewit.com for an example is based in China (but focussed on the high end foreign market). Our average website project is $10,000. This involved around a week of custom market research and strategy planning, keyword analysis, content organization, etc. 3 homepage designs to choose from, usually around 5 unique second level page template designs, and normal features you would find in any corporate website.

    However some websites run well above 10k. It all depends on the amount of custom features, attention to detail, complexity of designs, etc.

    If you want to do it on your own then start learning and expect anywhere from a few months to a year to get it online.

    what are you looking to sell? I think this has a fair old impact on what kind of ecommerce site would be sucessful.
