    Describe what your business is, how many users you've planned for. I assume you've done research on the demographics, expected traffic, costs of advertising, costs of running the website, inventory, shipping, returns, customer complaints, refunds, etc.

    Tell us more because our answer will be very different depending on what your business is.

    If you could specify what industry your website is it, I could give you further advice but as standard the following is a must:

    - Essential that it's mobile friendly.
    - Design needs to be clean & engaging.
    - Needs to on a CMS, quite simply to make your life easier.
    - Cart / Wishlist / Checkout needs to be as simple as possible and with as little steps as possible.
    - You need to add credit / debit card payments along with PayPal.
    - Descriptions on products need to be clear to tell the customer what your product actually does.
    - Testimonials from other customers give your website credibility
    - Contact information easily accessed
    - Optimization of the website to decrease page speed & increase overall performance.

    Hope this helps
