A word press template will be the best option as a starting point for your business. Your first eCommerce business store will need the flexibility to make changes to fit your audience and be as engaging on multiple levels.
- ease of setup - access to a large amount of distribution channels, amazon, ebay etc - straight forward payment solutions - access to a large number of drop ship companies - an international presence
Your business model requires an omni-channel strategy to position your products across multiple markets, countries and a strong web presence so you have the ability to dive deeper into data analysis and present your T-Shirts with the buying behaviours and engagement on multiple levels.
Managing your own word press store in parallel with any e-Commerce platform is always a great startegy.
I encourage an online business to gain complete control for their store as a large chunk of your revenues in time will be generated via your online presence.
