Abstract

Content Management Systems (CMS) are popular ways for e-commerce to set up websites as they provide easy editing of website content. Popular generic CMSs are of a race to provide the best solution for e-commerce. At the same time, some customized CMSs for e-commerce are evolved. This paper compares and evaluates three open source CMSs solutions for e-commerce: VirtueMart from Joomla!, Ubercart from Drupal, and Magento. We compare these products according to many aspects: hosting and installation, performance, support/community, content management, add-on modules, and functional features. The aim of the paper is to find the best CMS solution for e-commerce which encompasses the best of both CMS and store management. Finally, we propose some improvements to these products.
