I was wondering what the general opinion on the usability of the major E-Commerce platforms was? I am not concerned about which one has the most/best features, or easiest to develop for.

This would be the users first on-line store. Which is the easiest for them to use to manage their products?

Thanks

I’ve had customers figure out how to use WooCommerce and Jigoshop with no problems, these are very easy to install and setup. Slightly more complicated to setup is Prestashop but I’ve had customers figure out how to use this themselves as well. Try WooCommerce if the site is running on WordPress.

Thanks, I’ll take a look. I am not worried about developing for it, more that the end user will find it easy to manage their stock etc..

WordPress tends to be a good starting point for any online store, mainly because it’s easy on its users and at the same time draws from all the available resources the WordPress community can provide.

Later on, it might be wise to change to a more focused platform… if the store itself actually outgrows it, that is. There’s not much to gain from switching o a more powerful system if barely all of its potential will be used (looking at you, Magento).
