prashanthenjapuri, welcome to WebmasterWorld!

I'd choose Joomla over Drupal but only because I like it's structure better. As far as scalability and customizations go, they're about even.

Thanks lorax and toplisek.

how long have you been using joomla? do you regret your decision at any point.

I'm hearing magneto from lot of people but i heard it got acquired by ebay last week - not sure if its going to have any implications in terms of license and stuff in future.

How big is your store? - will joomla accept all types of payments.how long will it take to create a simple store up and running with all payment options if all the design templates are ready.

I know too many questions - but im just starting hope you lot understand.

Also any particular webhosting company you recommend for ecommerce site.

Thanks for your time.

I don't have a Joomla install of my own. I build sites for clients and have worked with several CMSs and eComm stores. Joomla is a good product - one of the better publishing platforms out there. The eComm modules that are available for it are a mixed bag. Some better than others. You can easily check out the gateways and shipping configurations by doing some searches to locate them. Searches like Joomla ecommerce should get you what you're looking for.

I'm sorry but we don't allow hosting discussions in this forum. There's a forum specifically for them here [webmasterworld.com].

I also recommend Magento with a number of extensions for a better performance.
