Possibilities when converting OSCommerce to Magento

We have a few highly modified webshops selling contact lenses based on OSCommerce and thinking to convert them to Magento and want to know if it will give us advantages when doing that against using OSCommerce.

We think that converting dataand designs to Magento will not be a problem but now we also use a multi-shops module and we expect that everything will not be possible that we now have already.

Therefore we have some questions about how we can get these functionalities in Magento or maybe they are there already.

Muli-stores module: We can create with our current OScommer Muli-stores module different product descriptions and meta tags per product per websites, so that each store on each different domain will be optimized for SEO and that we don’t get a penalty from Google for duplicate content.

We like to know if this will also be possible with Magento and if we then also can work with 1 stock so that we don’t need to create different products with different stocks and also how this will be handled with product attributes because with contact lenses we have so much different product attributes, like power, base cureve, color, etc.

Can we manage our stock quantities for all our product attributes in 1 overview for all websites?

Can the urls be the same as our current OSCommerce store, so that we don’t loose customers.

Is there a possibility for batch printing en batch update status, so that we can select a few different orders and the print their invoice, packagingslip or order confirmation and select a few orders and change the status from paid to send.

Is the ecommerce module in Google Analytics also working standard?

This are probably the most important points beside the points that we already know. I hope you all can tell us if this all will be possible and how we can do this.

All other points and suggestions are always welcome.

you eventually can see our sites on www.onlinecontactlenses.nl or www.contactlenzenwinkel.nl to took at if yousee other points that can be difficult.
