Hi, experts,
We are looking for solution for our B2C website platform.
I have following idea:
1. The B2C should be easy to maintain: Add products is only done by input or editing product information(pictures, description, review info, prices, relative articles etc) in the B2C backend point;
2. The B2C can aggregate every product serials into one site "channel";
3. Evey specific product page will have a view of single "landing page" which created by step 1;
4. Relative articles can also be displayed in the landing page of that product
I have done some research on shopping cart system and CMS system. My idea b2c platform is CMS+Shopping cart(shopping mall).
Is there any great script which can support those both? Or any other proposal?
Thanks for your information!

>> Can you give me more information on the topic of using wordpress or Joomla to setup the hybrid cms/ecommerce website?

Such as?  There are tons of plugins/modules for each CMS that do e-commerce.  WordPress also has a feature called "Network" (formerly multisite) mode that allows the super-admin to instantly deploy child sites as subdirectories or subdomains.  If your commerce module supports network mode, this allows you to instantly create a mall-style network of sites:

Almost all of the packages have language localization capability and Chinese language packs available.

Sorry, those are all way too broad.  I could write a full length article on each topic and a lot of it (such as ease of use) is subjective.  What one user finds easy, another may not.

Generally speaking:

1) They are all easy to use.  The more experienced you are, the easier they get.  Again, this is highly subjective and I recommend you download them and install them to see how it goes for you.

2) WordPress has the largest theme community but there are plenty for Drupal and Joomla as well

3) All are easy to maintain but this one of those subjective things.

4) Depends on the server, RAM, connection, external plugins, presence of a cache, etc. etc. etc.  There's no way to answer this.
