Default Need Help On E Commerce Site

I've had a successful run at making high profits from creating, buying and selling "premium" domain names and nothing else. I don't develop them, I don't make them into profitable ad based websites, nada. Just the "name" itself. I am able to provide amazing names for others but cannot think of a name for my own personal use. This will be a site which will sell perfumes and cosmetics.
Some names I own which are unrelated to the field:
perfumesonline247- the obvious thing to go with, but there is always a bob with some variation of this name and I'd like to stand out
euzio-weird sounding not thinking about perfumes for this one, but could be a possibility nonetheless.

I possess little to no knowledge of creating a website and what is necessary for a successful e commerce site. I refuse to do any coding on my own as I do not have the time I would much rather pay the price of having someone design the site, which has to be simple, including a simple but complete commerce tool such as big commerce. I need some tips as to who to hire to design my site and if using e commerce is a good idea.

I am running a health and beauty ebay business and my most popular items are perfumes and cosmetics. I had multiple accounts running multiple products, but then my 2 largest accounts got limited, hard, to 25% of regular sales of a week per week. So after years of having problems with ebay I am deciding to cut them off. I am running a legitimate business without scamming anyone in any shape, way or form, while others simply because they are titanium power sellers are allowed sell whatever they please with little to no problems.

As towards directing traffic towards this future site I already have a plan. Providing free shipping and discounts for regular customers on my current ebay accounts is more than enough for them to switch, I am mainly in need of help of finding someone to design a simple, but efficient web site, with an easy to use commerce solution. Btw I'd like to avoid paypal and ebay by all means because I'm tired of getting nickled and dimed, micro managed, and having to wait an hour on the phone for customer service while I'm making them thousands in fees.
