Hi guys, I am building a smartphone website and building a shop/store for it but I am confusing which word should I add to the URL? "shop" or "store"?
i.e example.com/shop/ or example.com/store/
it will be a page to sell smartphones, accessories, tablets, laptops.
Please advise me.

According to C.J. Brickell the word «store» is of larger signification than the word shop. «Shop» is likely to stems from «shed» and «store» has a general sense of «sufficient supply». I'm comparing «a barbershop» and «a barber store» and feel meaning «service» in «shop» and «goods» in the word «store». British English prefers «shop» and American English sticks with «store», correct me if I'm wrong. In the end the final word is yours!

In my opinion, go for the subdomain, like shop.example.com. Use symbolic linking if necessary.

In my opinion, store sounds like... I don't know how to properly say it... More? To give a better idea of what I mean: When I hear store, I picture myself a Wallmart, whereas with shop, I think about the small building close to my home, with all basic needs, but higher prices.

Of course, shop is one digit shorter than store when you don't want to end up with long URL's.
I think it doesn't really matter whether you take shop or store, just pick whatever you think sounds the best.
