Question Choosing an e-commerce website service

I am in the process of starting a small business setting War Gaming Products. Currently not planning on quitting my full time job, but i am hoping to be able to make enough to start my own brick and mortar shop a few years time.

Currently I have the domains (both .com and purchased.

I am currently looking at eCommerce platform which i can sell my products.
I would like a platform which is scale-able as i am starting off small. At this stage I might only have about 100 product. But I feel that by the end of the year this will change.
I am looking at using PayPal for my payment method.
I would like some thing which i can be my own shop. So no eBay or Esty shops.

I have started looking around via Google. I am finding some of these services just wants me ot sign up with a 14 day or 30 day trial with out giving me much information.
One advantage I do have is that previously i used to sell / support retail Point of Sales systems . So I have some understanding of those systems.

Does any one having suggestions for e-commerce solution (not eBay)
Any tips or traps i should be looking out for when choosing an e-commerce solution?

A guy I do website work for has utilized Magento before.

There's also plugins for WordPress, Drupal, etc. web platforms if you went that route.
