It is pretty hard to give you the only correct answer. Everything always depends on your needs and your budget.
You said your business is small, thus, I suppose Magento 2 is not the perfect choice for you. Sure, it is a powerful platform with a bunch of functionality that is provided out-of-the-box and endless opportunities in terms of additional features that can be custom-developed and implemented. However, if you are not tech-savvy, anyway, you should hire Magento developers to assist you in the setting-up, updating, and customizing of the platform. So, at first sight, it seems that Shopify might be a perfect choice for you. But as I said before, it is hard for me to give you a direct answer, since every single startup needs a thorough analysis.

Plus, you get all the benefits of the cloud — lower maintenance and support costs, a fast and stable website, and shared security responsibilities between Magento, Amazon, and your team.
Many sources state that Commerce Cloud starts from $40,000 per year ($3,333 per month) and increases in price depending on the same factors (GMV and AOV)
