    Magento, osCommerce, Zencart, or Wordpress - who is the winner?

    Hello all,

    While a veteran developer, I am a newbie when it comes to ecommerce. I have decide to develop my first ecommerce store, and I would like to know which open source ecommerce scripts you would recommend and why.

    One very important thing for me is the support and the popularity of the solution - it could be the best solution out there, but if it's not popular and there are not many people familiar with it, then it would be useless if a bug is discovered...

    Things to consider:



    1) features
    2) ease of use
    3) security
    4) customization
    5) plugins, addons, support, popularity etc

    I consider myself a wordpress expert, but I hear that it's really bad when it comes to ecommerce, and based on my experience I would have to agree since I don't see how WP could offer many ecommerce features. These are the kind of things that I would like to see in this thread - from people who have used those scripts and know what they are talking about. In other words, a post such as "magento is the best" wouldn't really help anyone. Tell us why you think it's the best (or the worst for that matter).

    Thanks in advance to everyone who posts here!

    P.S. If you know of any other open source ecommerce solution, then feel free to recommend it!
