I’ve been looking at Magento for a couple of years, firstly to improve on ZenCart and OsCommerce we’ve run for ten years plus, but the learning curve looked too steep.
Essentially we’d been lulled by the relative simplicity of ZenCart, but as the cart aged it became apparent that even with the new version it ws going to be lacking in comparison.
About six months ago we were persuaded to go with Prestashop, in our case, big mistake (others’ mileage my vary). But at least the move to Prestashop jagged us out of the ZC habit.
We’re now developing a Magento Community system, which is proving frustrating but rewarding at the same time. We should have bit the bullet and done this a year or so ago, rather than sit on the sidelines and wait for the others to get better.
Go for it.
