    Anyone have any opinions on the best full service ecommerce solutions that offer the best SEO? I am not looking to host it myself - I am done with that.

    I am currently using 3dcart for a few sites, and bigcommerce for others.

    Looking for opinions on the solutions that offer the best SEO out of the box though.

    Why is that? There isn't anything wrong with that.

    Because I have used Magento for years and it sucks. Every upgrade crashed the sites and required a programmer to fix them. It would randomly stop working because of cache issues, etc. Too much to maintain. I want someone else to worry about server security and updates.

    Those are Content management systems with Ecommerce plugins, completely different than what he's looking for.

    Op.

    Look into http://x.com, it's a new ecommerce solution by PayPal, Ebay, and Magneto (and if I read correctly, it's not self hosted.)

    PinnacleCart is a good alternative. It's offered both as a 'SaaS' package and a downloadable packe if you want to go that way.

    Ecwid is also a lightweight SaaS which you can plugin to a static page or anywhere else. Also by the same makers is X-cart which is more featured than Ecwid.


    Avoid Joomla/Drupal plugins, Zencart, OSCommerce, Magento, or pretty much anything else that alot of new people use. They're either bloated, buggy or impossible to use.
