All ebikes have a motor that makes noise that you'll have to get used to compared to a traditional bike, but it's not so bad. If it gets annoying, a half face helmet for mopeds/motorcycles will have flaps/plastic to block noise out.

The other answer...is tricky. That budget is very low for a new ebike (I can't comment on mopeds as where I live, you need a license to operate them, so I don't have one). There will likely be a lot of people coming along shortly saying "no good ebike is $500". That may be true to people with a comfortable income, but I do understand if you don't have a lot of money to throw around because of life circumstances.

If you have no large hills and/or are willing to help the motor by pedaling - this bike maybe, plus slap a cheap cargo rack on it, and you can buy/have it shipped to your local Walmart for pickup.

Ancheer ebikes for a bit more+shipping is similar quality if you prefer buying off Amazon.

If your commute is small, and by 'basic cargo' you mean something that fits in a bike basket - Maybe the Swagtron line of ebikes which are smaller+foldable.

Otherwise, if you're willing to up your budget a couple of hundred dollars more, I have this folding Ecotric bike and it's got a more powerful motor (250w vs 500w)- it does most of what I want to, including get up Pacific Northwest style hills so long as I pedal to help the motor along.

There's also the argument you'll get "the most bang for your buck" by converting a bike - and this can be true...but it also depends. Converted my old 26" Schwinn I had sitting around - and the conversion varies by the condition of the bike you use as the donor (some bikes need maintenance, even brand new bikes can have some questionable parts if you buy it from a box store), and buying batteries for cheap can be a bit overwhelming (I bought a bare minimum battery for $200, 48v/10.4 AH, which is okay on flats...but absolutely gets murdered on the hills I actually need it for). If one is new at bike mechanics/basic electrical concepts, it will require extra manpower hours to learn how to put the kit on the bike.

Cheers!

This one.

You won't look cool, but it will get you where you need to go, requires basically zero maintenance, and is actually under your budget.

I reviewed it here.
