I think Magento gets a bad rap for the slowness but with the right caching and setup, which there are many white papers for, it responds fairly nicely.

Many people can't quite get through the setup and configuration process .

And, if you survive the setup the next part is customizing which is like scaling K2.

The learning curve is steep but Magento also has a setup to do just about everything for an online store and plenty of 3rd party plugins(free and paid) to do everything else.

That is why I call it the Drupal of e-commerce.

I don't understand why Magento is getting a bad rap. Could someone share specifics?

Magento does have a steep learning curve. But I believe that's because it's solving issues other packages do not even acknowledge exists. It's internal architecture is very well thought out and implemented. There is a large pool of resources to hire from. Documentation and hosting are both equally mature. It's simple to get Magento to 2-5 second Page-load times using built-in caching features.

Having used Magento and most of the other popular E-Commerce packages for years ( including a few custom carts, and cart integration software ), it's the non-hosted E-Commerce I recommend the most at this stage for non-trivial implementations.

There is also X-Cart which says it has open source but. I haven't worked with their v4 revamped, faster, OOP code. I do know X Cart has the ability to sell through Facebook. And you can link the store to Twitter also. PCI compliant. 


Magento is the Drupal of e-commerce. You've been warned... They do have a PCI bridge for enterprise. 

PCI compliance is an expensive license. You will have to pay for that with an enterprise edition if the plan is to store credit cards. 

Spree does not offer PCI compliance. 

A work around is SSL, common practice on credit card data(authorize.net, first data and payment each have guides) and no storing CC data .

Hi Everyone,
 
I’m doing the research, but was hoping for some opinions or anything else to look into!
Main requirements are that it’s open source, PCI DSS compliant and not a SAAS, with social integration a major plus. Seems that they’re pretty mature products and have all the basic set of features needed, otherwise.
