When evaluating E-commerce systems, we always recommend starting by highlighting the goals that you’re seeking to meet as a business. Every shopping cart platform has its own pros and cons, but your unique needs and the experience that you’re hoping for as an organization will point you down the best path for your specific use case.

It’s a one-size-fits-most solution that can get you running quickly. Seems awesome, doesn’t it? It is, but it’s not. WordPress’s strengths are unfortunately also its weaknesses.
