I don't have enough experience and I don't know anyone with enough experience to adequately compare all the systems out there.

Effectively, this question is like asking "What is the best vehicle to get to work in?"

Some people may think it's a BMW, some might think it's a Ford, some might think it's a sailboat and some might think it's a ski lift. And depending on your use case, any one of those might be the "best" in that given use case.

Any search for "the best" should start with your requirements, and then find the tool that matches those requirements, not the other way around.

i can only spk about my experience with drupal.

after handcoding several ecommerce sites, we've moved some things into drupal commerce. if you don't know coding, you can basically forget it. imo drupal commerce provides a great number of helper functions which you can use to get a commerce site working, but it doesn't just work out of the box.

that's not to say it doesn't have potential - i like drupal more and more and have massive respect for the drupal commerce guys - but be prepared to get your hands dirty.


p.s. if you just want to sell a few basic items and checkout using paypal, drupal commerce will probably work very nicely.

From my point of view WordPress is the best because it has Huge developer community with plenty of documentation and tutorials available,it contains Free and paid plugins and specialized themes make it possible to create virtually any kind of site with WordPress.

Rather difficult to answer your question ileaddigital. As ergophobe notes, the requirements are extremely important. While basic functionality (catalog => shopping cart => checkout) is roughly the same across the CMSs, the differences show up in the administrative interface, the overall approach, and the details of execution.
