Good post :) , DailyNow is good idea, your PWA site asks to login first to get started, it will be better first show some DEV news then ask to login if they read more than 3 posts ? How is that idea ?

Personally I would go with a WordPress and Woocommerce setup, especially if your coding knowledge is limited. WP+WC is all GUI based so you can get started really quickly and easily. If WordPress doesn't float your boat then you could try Shopify or the somewhat costly Magento.

It all depends on what you are trying to achieve really. If you provide more info then it would be easier to advise a better solution for you.

I will agree with Justin. WordPress with WooCommerce is way to go. Otherwise Shopify is a good option too. Totally depends upon your needs.
