A 'website' can have so many definitions, how can I build a website is too brief a question.
I'll try to answer. First a website could be a few simple pages built using html only, or it could be a great big complex thing using several different web programming languages.
In your title, you ask how to build a web site then you complicate the issue by bringing in payment processors, secure hosting etc.
So, first, you need a domain name and a web hosting account, plus you need to purchase a secure certificate. (https) Some hosts will include one in the price for hosting: Try hostgator.
This will mean that when someone wants to purchase through your site they will be taken to an https page or a secure page.
Next, you need an e-commerce script rather than build one yourself, you'll have to do a learning to start from scratch.
When you purchase a hosting account from most hosting companies,they include auto installaers so in a few clicks you can automatically install a shopping mall on your site. This is by far the easiest way to sell things over the internet. Whoever you get hosting from, try to ensure you get a cpanel account as cpanel is by far the easiest to use, and will include shopping mall scripts. If you choose hostgator (in my opinion the best, but do check them out first) then you can get a discount code from my profile.
