Both developing a website and app requires some different set of skill set. If you are talking about a website then you have to learn html css php mysql etc. If you developing an android app then you should have good knowledge of Java and its classes.

If you just want to validate your idea and do not want to dig too deep into coding then I would advise you to use Wordpress and woocommerce plugin for wordpress. It does not involve any coding but only drag and drop kind of customisation unless ur requirement is very specific and different then provided by wordpress.

You have to just buy a domain name and hosting provider service. Select the appropriate wordpress theme from 1000s of free available theme n start your responsive ecommerce website. A responsive site will work equally well on both desktop n mobile. Once validated n satisfied n if actually there is a requirement you can start the app development.

This is the fastest n most cost efficient way of validating your idea with an equally mind blowing responsive site with zero coding skills.

Hope I answered your query

    Hi Digvijay, Thanx for your detail Answer :) actually i have 2 member in my team, 1 person knows android development & another one knows website development & i am from database background. i am just confused, is any other technical member required (i.e having any other skill set ) for starting ecommerce startup or we can start now?

    Hi Ganesh, I believe you already have a complete team. You have to do some graphic designing also in terms of logo, high quality images n all. Either you can learn it or hire some good experts on Fiverr. Ecommerce is part technology n part operations. Focus on operations once you have your MVP ready. Good luck

    Hi Ganesh, If you are planning for a scalable and reliable E-commerce one go with other E-Commerce platforms like magento, X-Cart, Open cart, Zend Cart etc,, Skills required for these are PHP, Javascript, JQuery, HTML,CSS. If your E-commerce business is small scale then i would prefer to go with worpdress/Joomla/Drupal as Digvijay Singh said (Wordpress is easy ).
