Read 235 times and no replies? Well, even though this thread is ancient I'll have a little go!

Easy to install and use: Cubecart, Lots of features but heavy: Magento, Nice balance: Jshop.

And of course there's Bakery! If I were to set up a small ecomm website though I'd probably just use WB in combination with Mal's ecomm so I can optimize it well for the se's - I don't like the way most ecomm websites work in this respect and depending on the size and nature of the shop might be willing to comprmise functionality for ranking!

We have just moved away from OsCommerce in favour of Magento. It took me a cuople of days to get my head around the admin system, but it's well documented, and it is really good. It is a really powerful and robust system. The only thing that i really don't like is the complexity of the template system. Quite hard to get a custom design installed.

I have been told that X-cart is very good as well, and quite cheap to get it set up by the guys at X-cart, but I have never used it myself.

Thanks for these. I have a QNAP local LAMP server, and tried but failed installing Magento, as some PHP features were not enabled. As I am out of my depth, I just switched to try CubeCart, which installed without a hitch.

Thanks again...

I have been told that X-cart is very good as well, and quite cheap to get it set up by the guys at X-cart, but I have never used it myself.

Had a brief look at X-Cart. It seems to be very professional but staring price at USD 229 plus extra costs for "must have" modules, is a bit pricey for me. Granted, if you are using it to generate thousands, it may not be expensive, but for the hobby-ist, it ain't cheap!


JSHOP is even dearer: £200 GBP


Cubecart 3 is free, and v4 has a 30 day free eval period, then starts at USD 130 (logod) or USD 180 (logo free)

for now I am going to see if CubeCart can do what I need... :)

I have used OsCommerce for a small eshop and was satisfied.

I'm using X-cart since 3 years. It works great and the support is very reactive.

Hope you're getting on well with this, I've always found it ones of the easiest for a good basic ecomm website but it's a pain when you start installing mods as it's nowhere near as clever as WB!

I take back what I said about Magento being robust. it's a bit of a bug farm. Lost of little problems, and they seem to post a new upgrade every couple of weeks, which always contains new bugs ;-)

Has anyone found a system that integrates well with WB?

I have used osCommerce for a few years. Very easy to setup and integrate. I only use v2.2 because v3 isn't very stable yet. I have installed it, but they changed the way the template layout is. I am trying to integrate WB and osCommerce together. Should be easy. I haven't used Mal's ecomm but looked at the site and looks nice. I have used exponent but there isn't and shopping cart available yet. The are going to add one, but will be charging for its use.

Anyway, my selection would be osCommerce as of now, but willing and open to change.
