      Hi Pamela:
      My preference would be an open source (PHP) ecommerce site that can be purchased. Know of any that you might recommend?

          I avoid Open Source because of the costs and time involved. In my experience, Open Source costs more, and carries more liability.

              That includes any sort of plug-in that can be added to WordPress. IMHO anyone using WordPress as a store is asking for trouble.

                Agreed. I love WordPress, but NOT as a store. People are embracing WooCommerce, even though it's not compliant, is a nightmare to manage, and has a plethora of issues. I also researched it further for a few folks who begged me to - seems like developers and "implementers" are pushing quotes for "real" ecommerce via WordPress at starting points of $10k.

                  You and Bruce are spot on, Leslie. That is exactly what I've found as well. Quite a scary alternative for an e-commerce site in my opinion.

                    Great points and information for others to think about when they consider WooCommerce, Pamela! I had a client just ask me about it, and that is where I went with my advice as well.

                      Thanks. Unfortunately, I get shot down in lots of other forums about my opinion on this. People really love the word free, even if it winds up costing a heck of a lot more. Something I should blog about on my own site, since no one can shut me up there. :-)

                        Please do Pamela. Though it will be a voice in the wilderness, at least its a voice.

                        Far, far, far too many people think "FREE" means without cost. In fact, "free" is just a different type of payment plan.

                            I plan to write a detailed post about this, because many people are being steered the wrong way.

                              That will be fantastic. I had a "lightbulb" moment this morning. In my case, it happened reading a reply that Bruce had made to one of my Twitter posts which brought me back to what I had found when looking at the Magento pricing. I realized it was just for the application, you still had to find your own hosting for it. So with Magento, you will have to distinct bills, one for the application and one for hosting. Most people are seeing this as an increase in hosting costs (probably because of the increased space and bandwidth). I also remembered that when their was a higher number of hosts that offered Miva Merchant, Miva Merchant hosting was priced higher than "standard" hosting. Perhaps the answer is to break the two out into separate line items on the bill?
