Greetings!

I am debating which platform should I go with… Wordpress or Magento… for my website.

My plan:

I will not run a warehouse or manage inventory (in the far future, I definitely will use Magento to run physical inventory at my warehouse, right now, I don’t have warehouse).

I will make money from the affiliate program such as selling amazon.com products or any other website products on my website.

I will not send out tech people to the sites to do the projects.

My website will make money by referring business to customer’s request (will have business directory).

I would like to hear your recommendation or suggestion on which platform and also extensions for Magento Community if Magento is recommended.

Thanks

I would recommend Magento. It is known for being extremely flexible and customizable solution. You can do whatever you want in your Magento shop since you get full access to source code. You can get even more functionality via extensions and addons. It can also boast of high end options and high income results.
So, if you plan to use Magento in the future, there is no need to wait.

Wordpress is ideal for ecommerce needs if only selling a few products. If you mainly have a site that is driven by content and news updates and you sell a few t-shirts or tickets to an event then the Word Press eCommerce Plugin will work for you. Below is a list of the general well known facts about WordPress eCommerce.

- Tons of eCommerce 3rd party plugins to choose from to fit your needs
- Easily integrate your eCommerce into your existing WordPress theme
- Not as secure as Magento, WordPress has been frequently hacked.
- Unfortunately, 3rd party plug-ins are less reliable which isn’t good when it comes to selling products or tickets.
