Our ecommerce solutions are Simplestore and Storefront(Bigcommerce) They are standalone solutions and do not work with other services.

Can Shopify be used on my Homestead site? Is there advantages to using Simplestore over other sources?

Any 3rd party ecommerce would not integrate into Sitebuilder. Shopify is similar to Bigcommerce in that you would use their software to build the store You can try to mimic the look and feel of the site and then link to it.

Simplestore is the only ecommerce that can be added via Sitebuilder. Many Storefront customers maintain a Sitebuilder site and then create a subdomain for the Bigcommerce store, then make them look similar for a good customer experience. Depending on your needs Simplestore may  or may not fit your needs.

I expect that it will work for me. I do not intend to have more than 100 items available for purchase online. After obtaining some online site building and selling experience, who knows? I am seeking a simple solution to experiment with and one that'll work easily and without problems. Simplestore can do?

There is a good chance. There are other things to think about. Do your products have options? How many options? What type of shipping options do you require? Simplestore is for US only, if you plan on International sales, then it will not work. Do you need any special features to get started? If not, then it is probable that you can get started with Simplestore.
