I was starting an e-commerce site & wanted to know which cms or script was the best to use. I was looking for something that was...

1. Easy to customize and update.
2. Automatically keeps track of inventory after sales.
3. Has built in S.E.O. features.
4. Secure and not easily compromised.

Do any of you know of a WP or Joomla theme, or a certain php script with those features? Thanks.

I would go with Magento. I think it is most popular, there are many themes available and I would say that it will be quite easy to find a Magento Developer

Magento and WooCommerce are great options.
But it all depends on what kind of ecommerce site you are planning.
Magento is much more universal, but for small shop WooCommerce is good enough.

I was looking for something that was easy to scale and handle a large amount of inventory well so out of stock items won't get sold. Would you suggest Magneto for something like that? The site would start small but I'm thinking big long term.

If you are looking for a scalable and serious eCommerce platform then Magento should be your choice.

Magneto is one of the best, but i don't like its interface imo
But it's scalable and has a mobile version

I agree with everyone here, Magento is a good choice. You can run hundreds of thousands of products.

I setup a site for a company using Joomla and Magento, there's a plugin called Magebridge by Yireo that enables you to use them together. You get the advantages of Joomla with a great cart in Magento but it's VERY in depth and if you don't have an actual budget and business plan that includes IT I wouldn't recommend it, but if you do it's a GREAT setup.

Peace,
