Hi, I have a need create a marketplace similar to Amazon, can anyone recommend any good PHP software? I am going to be using Magento for another part of the system, so if there is anything out there that may work with Magento in some way I would like to do this or alternatively I would like for it to provide XML-RPC support, but I won't exclude it if it has no support for any of this.

    I am looking for something along the lines of amazon, where people can create their own account and buy and sell through my site.

    Isnt  Magento a branch off OScommerce and if so, could I use Magento to do it?

    Commerce is not related to osCommerce AFAIK.

    Yes, you can use Magento also. Magento is related to setting up a commerce website:
