Actually I want to start my own online business. I have been looking for such a platform that is good as well as free. I know this may sound strange but to be honest, I want something that takes nothing from me.

You need to spend money to make money. My humble opinion.

User is banned. Lying about his location, most likely a set-up question for spam.

I almost always use Magento (free), but on a couple of occasions have used the very cool GumRoad service (ecom + merchant in one) but... I have been interested in OpenCart for years. @MJ DeMarco, Can you tell us where you use OpenCart?

What exactly is "free"?

I have two stores on Magento. That's free.

Except the high quality Magento specific hosting, £xxxx+ modules required to make it best in industry, numerous £££ to developer, £60 /mo for reviews integration, £30 /mo exit intent etc etc. The list goes on.

My third store is on Opencart. Also free.

Also cost £xxxxx in modules, developer alterations, hosting etc. Etc.

I highly reccomend getting going with a $30 /mo Shopify or similar SaaS to get off the ground quickly. It's cheaper than free.

I use Sonassi for hosting... but am always looking for options. If I could pry... what is the Magento specific hosting you use?

Yes, I agree (except that I don't like Shopify for SEO and cranky checkout)... Whenever I can I use gumroad. It is basically free as they only really charge for a very easy to setup merchant account, and you can drop your products and checkout anywhere. However, be aware that gumroad is really only made for single item sales... but if that works, its absolutely fantastic.
