Help Me Choose A Shopping Cart From These 4 Options

Hey guys,

I have a client who has chosen a particular merchant gateway which gives me 4 choices of shopping cart to easily integrate with.

The choices are Magento, Virtuemart, ZenCart, ekmPowershop.

Please can you help me choose the best one. I've found a rockettheme (Joomla) called Mynxx with Virtuemart pre-installed so I'm tempted to choose that but I'd really appreciate your advice on which one to go for. The ecommerce store will have about 200 products in.

Thanks in advance.

    DON'T bother with magento, far too complicated and you'll find yourself having to pay people to come in and help.

    Go with Zencart.

      I would go with Zencart. I've used it pretty frequently and there is a learning curve to start with, but not too steep. There are a LOT of plugins for it and a lot of themes as well.

    I've had a test drive with Zencart and it's really easy to get to grips with and you can create a professional looking website very quickly with all the shopping cart requirements.

        I use a Premium eCommerce plugin for WordPress which integrates perfectly with other plugins like membership and affiliate software as they are also made by the same creator.

        Zencart is popular but does it easily integrate with membership and affiliate plugins?
