Does anyone have a suggestions for another open source shopping cart as a replacement for Margento.
Magento has all the features I want and would be an amazing piece of software if it worked, but it doesn’t. I moved to Magento about 2 years ago for multiple stores but found that it is such an incredibly slow hog, that it’s not usable. I have tried every trick in the book to speed it up with no luck.
There are just way too many bugs to count, such as every 3rd order pops back with cart is empty error. Paypal integration is overly complicated and just doesn’t work 1/2 the time or results in a ‘suspected fraud’ status, customers place duplicate orders because they think it times out after waiting 3 to 4 minutes to process a credit card.
I’ve been hoping with every upgrade (which, by the way, usually kills your whole store when you try to upgrade), that they will fix some of this but they don’t and it just seams to get worse. So I’m looking for an alternative that actually works consistently without breaking the bank.
