Hi I am thinking of using Magento for the first time and I have heard there are a few issues with loading times of pages etc. have these been iron out now?
And from a functionality point of view
Does Magento come with a newsletter/email marketing module?
Do you have to connect shopping cart to a merchant services as I am not looking to sell directly
from the website at the moment, but just show my products in a e-shop?
One final question
I can see lots of templates where the products are shown in category order then each product on its own page.
But can magento handle all one categories products in a vertical list format? As a lot of my customer are likely to want to buy several things at once from one category
