    Most E-Commerce sites are using a premade "CMS" that specializes in e-Commerce. They are most likely using a template that was premade but edited to their liking. I think the best route for you would be to do just this. Install a CMS e-Commerce script and edit a premade template to your liking.

    yes, if you have no experience in making e-commerce sites, the best way would be to use a e-commerce template with some e-ecommerce plugins. For example you could use wordpress with woocommerce, or some other combination.

    VirtueMart is not so good anymore, it's not even compatibility with Joomla 3.0, try some other component like is HikaShop.

    Better to use a ready made platform if you new to coding. So Try one of the following ;
    1) Woocommerce with wordpress
    2) Opencart
    3) OsCommerce

    If you are good with coding.. Then you can get hold of a front end design and code accordingly with plugins..

    Just as a left-field suggestion (though it may not apply to affiliate links so much), how about using Facebook as your ecommerce store? It's easier than having to setup/customise a CMS and depending on your target audience, it obviously is more geared to attracting 'social' traffic.

    When coupled with something like:
    http://new.soldsie.com/

    The cart/payment aspects work pretty much like an ecommerce store.

    HTH - just another idea.

    As it's been over a month and the OP has yet to return, I think we can safely close this thread.

    Thanks to all who contributed.
