None of the hosted solutions seemed to offer multi-language/currency support, along with other desirable features. Magento did indeed look better than Prestashop, but I can't be running into issues this early on... what about 3 weeks down the line? I'm experimenting with OpenCart, as it looks to be a heppy medium between Magento and Presta.

I installed a demo store, and was fairly pleased--but kept running into admin panel and store front 'memory allocation' errors. I had 1 sample product... running the entire thing on SiteCloud.com; I couldn't even find a confident solution on the forums. I also couldn't Magento Connect anything... just error messages with "invalid path" or something (and I already tried setting the stability to 'beta')

Here's a rather provocative quote I found in another question... "There seems to be growing anger with magento as the community is slowly and painfully discovering that varien, the company behind it isn't so much interested in championing a reliable open source product, than to create a community that would require extensive commercial support."

I see, so when they say Magento is a pain in the ass--they really mean, developing/modifying the package... but it's customization is fairly friendly, given 99% of most client-needs. What would you say in regards to people complaining it's "super slow?" Btw, thanks for taking the time to contribute your advice!

First off--thanks a lot for this input guys... it's definitely a unique position to be diving head first into a fairly high profile project, but being super green to ecommerce. I'm fairly new to PHP, but I've heard that Magento takes weeks (months?) to familiarize yourself with... I wonder what features Magento offers over Prestashop, because if it's truly a better choice, our client is probably okay with us taking a more practical-in-the-longrun approach. I'd hate to be 2 weeks deep into Magento, and not be able to add 2 fields to the order page to accommodate our client's vision.

I was actually thinking of going with Prestashop hosted on SiteCloud or a Rackspace Cloud server. The available modules look to cover a lot of the little things missing, plus the multi-language/currency support is a winner. It claims to be PCI compliant, along with with a fairly active community... what are your thoughts on this anthonyg? I appreciate you taking the time to help!
