Hi there @DigitalSplendid. I believe you will have to write a little bit more information.

You are asking for help on which Google Cloud product to use. It depends on what knowledge you have and on what you want to do. Check out Google App Engine and Firebase too. You may want to use Cloud Storage for storing files, Cloud SQL for storing data, and Cloud Load Balancing for distributing traffic across multiple servers.

But first, you have to identify the core features of your app. Do you know what you want to do with it, what will your users want to do with it? Do you have in your mind the design of the UI and UX?

Thanks. Features will be similar to that on the website. Initially would be happy with bare minimum.

Hello @DigitalSplendid 

The website you mentioned is running on WordPress (CMS) and using WooCommerce (

There are so many ways to deploy a WordPress site on GCP, but you can start from here

Also, if you don't have a clue on how to start, I strongly recommend you hire a consultant to help you during this journey and focus on your product. There are a lot more things to be concerned about besides just running the WordPress stack, things like Payment Integration, Delivery Integration, Inventory Integration, Security, and the list goes one. But if you want to take this path alone, you will find tons of YouTube videos and Blog posts on “How to deploy a WordPress site on Google Cloud”

Good luck!
