Which ecommerce CMS package?
or do I build one myself?

 7:11 pm on Jan 4, 2009 (gmt 0)

I've been scanning around the various CMS for Ecommerce today and they all seem keen on flashy stuff rather than good clean usability and SEO.

I'm old school myself. I'd like something that's really usable and completely accessible even if you have a rubbish browser as bad as googlebot.

There are bound to be other old school folk like myself on here. What do you all use? Or do you just build something sensible yourself? (I can program but it seems a hassle).

I am liking the Interspire solution still, but I have to agree with Wlauzon. I just discovered the 250 character limit on the warranty portion. A better upload would be a nice thing.

I played with magento for about a week.

Then I tried drupal (a modular cms package) with ubercart (a drupal module) [be sure to dry drupal6 and ubercart 2]

both drupal and ubercart have great support - their creators will respond, the community will respond. The number of GOOD add on modules for drupal is amazing.

regarding duplicate content: drupal can avoid this completely when properly configured.

Joomla is good, and has good extensions.

This has been our path over the last 10 years with CMS / Carts.

Bigstep - year 1
Yahoo Store - year 2
Miva Merchant w/ Storeman - year 3-4
Custom Solution (PHP/ MySQL with asp.net CMS) year 5 - present

We're still not finished developing but feel that what we have fits our business model better than anything out there. We have two programmers on staff that handle development. It probably could have been done cheaper by buying a package outright. However this allowed us to slowly and continuously grow our abilities as revenue grew. During this time we grew from 3 employees to 58.

i am in the process of starting a new project that by the end of the year will require an online shop.

i have an ecom site running oscommerce... I have seen comments indicating that its not great. Can i ask specifically whats not great about it?

I am not an oscom guru, nor a particular fan of any ecom software.
