I was wondering if anyone out there has ever seen some kind of Shopify alternative. I know Shopify is mainly for businesses but my purposes aren't for a business and their packages start at $24 a month. I haven't run across anything other than Shopify but if you have, please let me know below.

A cheap, but good quality, alternative to shopify is JumpSeller.com. They also use liquid for themes and their customer support is very good.

Try Shopifree.com - it is currently in Private BETA but you can contact them and request an invite code. Works perfectly for me and looks really clean.

Here is a site directly for alternatives http://alternativeto.net/software/shopify/. It looks like it is zen cart and LemonStand in the lead.

there are plenty of alternatives for Shopify. Some of them which come straight to my mind are BigCommerce, Volusion, 3DCart, CoreCommerce. But I think they are more or less at the same pricing range.
So, if you need something cheaper try to consider one of open source solutions like Magento, OpenCart and PrestaShop.
Here is a nice article about cost effective shopping carts.

We have used Opencart at my work and it seems fine, lots of payment modules and such. I guess you need to identify what payment gateway you are going to aim for. If your using paypal then I guess your kind of going to be spoiled for choice.

Other wise you should look for what ever product utilizes your payment gateway of choice.
