    I'm on zen cart. I've tried Magento, VirtueMart and PrestaShop. Magento's XML templating system is horrible, prestashop's images uploader sucked, virtuemart wasn't tooo horrible. But so far zen has been the easiest for me. Thanks for teh Ubercart tip: I'll give it a try

    YES. PrestaShop uploader is crap. I have 5000 products and its doesnt seem to work at all with prestashop. Heard the same about viruemart.

    OSC is ok just looking for better looking.

    I have a joomla site and use virtuemart. It does the job well for me and you can easily integrate different payment merchants.

    Which one is best for bulk uploads? I have 5000 products and would like to transfer them over to each other ASAP. Let me know which one is best for bulk upload of product files.

    In my opinion the Magento 's XML templating system is very powerfull.
