    I would say, start off as simple as possible. Look for a good hosting company, get recommendations and look at what they offer.
    I would then look at software your going to use. Each cart have its own benefits and downfalls. 
    I would consider looking at an opensource cart like magneto or opencart, this gives you the flexibility to amend your site to suite your needs.
    For payment I would also consider starting off with paypal, unless your confident your income will be high enough for a merchant account or you can pay the monthly fees.

    Protecting your customers purchases is key. Make sure the links they click on to order have HTTPS.

    Setting up an e-commerce website is very simplified now a days.

    With a lots of hosted platforms and cart systems you just have to research and choose from the one that is best for you and will give the best support.

     

    Site uptime and look and feel of the site are also important but having said that you should also consider hosting with enough resources so as to handle expected traffic.

     

     

    Last but not least, getting into an e-commerce space you need to analyze your sites positioning in the market

    for ex. I would like to discuss the case of one of the projects I'm working on <a herf="http://www.dressmyphone.in">dress my Phone </a> offering Fashionable mobile accessories in the Indian gadgets and accessories market.

     

    Your Value offering in term of the products in this case cases and covers should be such that it should be closely related to the search trends so that it isn't that hard to drive traffic.
