    Curious to know what eCommerce software people are using?

    I use a bespoke product/wp plugin that is made specifically for selling photos online - Sunshine Photo Cart. Then I was stripe as the merchant facility.

    I'm using Woocommerce since the last 12 months. Works well if you're already tied to wordpress for your site, aren't running a massive online shop etc.

    Was using OsCommerce for 10 year prior which served well.

    I use WooCommerce. I don't have any coding knowledge but have managed to build a couple of websites using Wordpress. Just lots of searching for a fix when something goes wrong!

    We're using OpenCart. Has a pretty good back-end for order processing, email notification etc. and support. Also supports multiple stores as we will end up with retail and wholesale sites.

    I use OpenCart too. I will admit to being a bit of a tightarse and hate paying for stuff if there is a free alternative. I have enough of a brain to be able to work out freeware when it has decent documentation. OpenCart has a FANTASIC community that answers any question really quickly.

    I just had a store built using Wordpress/Woocommerce. Early days yet so I can't really comment on how good it is but was sold on it being good for SEO.

    I'm building a Magento 2 site because the range of products I expect to list are large and I've been told wordpress solutions wouldn't handle it. And having used joomla in the past I thought I'd step up to Magento.

    One thing I didn't know was that you cannot operate just from the admin GUI, Magento requires a mix of backend GUI and CLI commands to work.
