I'm fairly pleased with Drupal + Ubercart. If I were doing it today, I would probably do Drupal + Commerce.
Essentially, I chose Ubercart b/c I already knew Drupal and the shop owner wanted fairly complex structured data for the products and Drupal is pretty good at that.
Will the video be free?
I've found WordPress and the combination of FoxyCart and FoxyPress to work very well for small shops.
I think Magento will be the best CMS for E-commerce site. If you have PHP skills in-house, Magento should be a safe, scalable option for the e-commerce part. Concerning the WEM/CMS part, you'd need to choose a tool that is easily plug-gable to Magento.
For me, it is PrestaShop. Very easy and the features are many.... not to mention fast.
I would focus on the primary purpose of your site... whether that is ecom or content blogging, and build the site around that solution.
If the primary reason for the site is to sell stuff, find the right ecommerce platform, and drop Wordpress into a /blog/ directory or subdomain of its own, theme it to match the ecommerce.
We use CS-Cart on the domain root for a site we manage. WordPress in the /blog/ directory. The site used to be Joomla with a commerce extension, and it was just too chunky for us. Didn't seem to suit either purpose (blog or commerce) well.
Reverse the method if needed. Put the blog on the root of the domain if that's your primary site purpose. Drop a commerce app into a directory.
I suggest keeping the two separate though... use a good blogging software to blog, use a good commerce app to manage sales. Focus on whats most important for the root of the domain.
Magento CMS is best for Ecommerce. It provides flexibility and offers control over the functionality and features of e-store. Its an open source platform, its free of cost, and helps to get better traffic.
I will suggest to believe upon WordPress and Joomla. Both contribute satisfactorily in seo of e-commerce platforms.
I think Magento and Drupal are the best CMS for any eCommerce sites. Both offer great features and options that can create a great experience for the consumer.
Not only does it provide features for the consumer, but for the host company too. The option of choosing from different themes, adding and changing features is a great advantage that companies get.
I prefer oscommerce and drupal, because its not only the shopping cart functionality but the front-end or design is also important to reduce bounce rate and improve sales.
I like Joomla over wordPress. It can be customized with its features more easily with great freedom. Features and expansion scope make its my favorite.
I will suggest three things if you are looking for a small shop, then go for WordPress, OsCommerce for medium-sized and Drupal for large e-commerce sites. You should not think out of these options and they are great.
I am looking to satisfy similar needs. Wondering what, among the open source solutions, would be best for a site with several thousands of products. What about shopping carts designed to sync with brick-and-mortar POS systems, such as PDG Commerce (syncs with Intuit Quickbooks and Quickbooks POS)?
