    I agree with you on Joomla for ecommerce, their shopping cart options are the best and easiest, as far as affiliate marketing and adsense though I like to use wordpress just because you can set it up super fast and easy.

    If you are running a true ecommerce site then a CMS is not the best option no matter which one you choose. Joomla and Virtuemart are good, but a true shopping cart is always better for a true ecommerce site.

    For pure Ecommerse sites, I tend to use OpenCart and PrestaShop due to their easiness of use. Before, I was deciding against those two and Magento, but after reading a few complicated reviews, it was concluded that Magento was slightly hard for beginners to use. I've never tried combining ecommerse sites with blogs/webs like Joomla or Wordpress. I've thought about it though! :)

    I swear by Zen Cart: a dedicated solution with so many modules and add-ons, and it also is one of the scripts that come prepackaged with cPanel's Fantastico De Luxe.

    Magento, joomla and prestashop are the prominent ones. They have almost all the facilities provided.

    I think Joomla is really a good CMS for website designers. Comparing with Wordpress, it is not only very easy to use and also can be customized as more as you like.

    I think those above have covered it pretty well - It depends on a whole host of factors such as the requirements of the user, the available budget, whether or not scope to extend is required etc etc.

    For small "shops" with no more than a handful of products using a CMS is an ideal solution. It's quick, easy, inexpensive and will do the job whilst requiring minimal configuration. However, if you want to start selling hundreds of products across multiple categories with customised product pages, access to multiple payment gateways and intend to make large quantities of sales, then something like eCommerce on on WordPress is not particularly well-suited. It does an amazing amount considering that it's free, but it's really not designed as an enterprise-level eCommerce solution.

    Magento is one of my favourites at the moment, though if you intend to do anything bar install it and throw a paid-for template at it, I thoroughly recommend buying a book on it. It's powerful, but not something anybody - even a developer with limited eCommerce experience - can pick up and run with easily.

    I've heard some good things about Magento...
    I myself am thinking of starting an e-shop so I'll have to try some before I make up my mind.

    For ecommerce I prefer to use a custom built CMS rather than an open source. Simply because those have great support behind them and it is much harder to find good support with open source products.

    you should check out ExpressionEngine. All the bots here have failed to mention this but its a great CMS quite complicated to set up but once done its pretty amazing. Haven't tried out the ecommerce part but it must be good!

    In my opinion each CMS have advantages and disadvantages. The joomla design is better but wordpress is better in terms of google friendly..

    I'm looking for one that supports downloadable stuff.
    E.g., a user will buy using PayPal or w/e and after it's confirmed the shop will give the user the download.
