    Just as the title says. I'm going to start an ecommerce site and I've only worked with Wordpress thus far. What do you guys recommend?

    What do you use for payment processing though? I'm not really a coder so I was going to just get a wordpress theme with a built-in ecommerce plug in.

    First time hearing about Interspire. I played with the shopping cart feature, and it seems like a powerful software. The templates look too identical though. I was trying to look for a way to edit them through the demo. Can you edit the templates?

    In interspire you can not edit the templates so i don't like because of this. Joomla, Magento and opencart are some good CMS. but i like Magento. it have very strong features.

    Is there a reason why you are moving away from Wordpress+ecommerce plugin combo?
    What are some disadvantage of it (even tho I notice it is not really a main-stream ecommerce platform). But I do see lots of sites using it.

    Thanks in advance

    Wordpress is sufficient, but if you are looking to sell 1000+ products, I recommend Magento Commerce.

    I think even with 200+ products is too much for wordpress to handle?
    All these plugins make the site loads so slow.

    OpenCart, ZenCart or Magento. Either of three but OpenCart is my personal favorite.

    Interspire's email marketing program is pretty amazing, not so sure about their shopping cart system. Haven't tried that personally. But then again, Magento is a very customizeable platform, might cost you a bit to customize it to the way you want if you are not a developer yourself.

    Wordpress is a pretty good choice imho, it's flexible, easy to customize and fast to set up as an ecommerce site. Magento for example is bulky, slow and very annoying to operate.
    You can even have really big ecommerce sites run on wordpress, it's easy to find developers, and there are tons of good ecommerce plugins that support most of the interesting payment gateways.

    P.S: To you people who say 200 or 1000 products is too much for wordpress, sorry but this is BS :)
    You can either make your own shop plugin very easily, but since you are not a coder I would suggest to take a look at the biggest ecommerce plugins for wordpress, def. sufficient for a decent sized shop with way more than 1000 products.

    yes where there wordpress have some positive points. Magento also have positive points. You can optimize Magento and it starts loading easily. For large eCommerce platform wordpress is not a good choice.

    I love using shopify. It makes things quite simple, plus there are a lot of great apps to improve it. (Why bother spending time coding something when you could just pay to have it instantly?)
