We've searched far and wide and can safely say Magento is the best shopping cart on the internet. It really is the next generation of ecommerce.

Our site, NerdyShirts.com is an online T-shirt company. We carry some of the most awesome shirts in the world. Recently we've been experiencing some growth. To handle this, we needed a new shopping cart and a good web hosting company. We found Magento, which we believe to be the next generation of ecommerce and we found CrucialWebHost.com, a hosting company whose business model is developed around Magento. They have been a major help along the way. Magento runs quickly on their servers and they know Magento quite well. We've had a great experience with them.
We are using the basic Magento features and have added some custom features including a real time graphical stock chart in the front end, a rate of sale/reorder script in the backend and an out of stock notifier, which notifies customers when a shirt they want comes back in stock.
We've searched far and wide and can safely say Magento is the best shopping cart on the internet. It really is the next generation of ecommerce. Oh, it's also free.
We are currently devoting all our time to NerdyShirts but of course are always throwing ideas back and forth about other ecommerce ventures.
Magento is quite scalable with some essential enterprise features built in.
We had been watching Magento since it was first announced. We started using the first stable version and now are along for the ride. We look forward to seeing Magento develop and continue to grow.
We've tried and used many shopping carts, Magento stands above them.
Shopping carts and web hosting is important, but don't forget about customer support.
