I'm new to Django and I'm trying to build an eCommerce website, but I'm facing a problem of storing data of products that don't share the same attributes. I'm wondering which database technologies to use and how design database in such way that I could store different products attributes without problems.

Django is good with RDB (Relationals Data Bases).

Dealing with undetermined data, you need to use JSON storage format because you don't know what attributes have the model. Non-Relationals Data Bases are good for that, but, RDB isn't. You can use MongoDB for storage that JSON info, but there born a new question:

When to use MongoDB with Django?

Short Answer: You don't.

You can use Postgresql JSON field implementation in Django.

from django.contrib.postgres.fields import JSONField
from django.db import models

class Product(models.Model):

    metadata = JSONField(null=True, blank=True)
