Best online store CMS for multiple Paypal accounts

Hello, I need to setup an online store real quick, so there's no alternative to CMS.

The store will sell items from multiple vendors so I need the possibility to associate a different Paypal account to different items.

Ideally the possibility to have a multi-checkout system so the customer can buy from different vendors with a single click, Not sure if this last thing's manageable though.

So, can someone give me advice on this? Which system and plugins to use? Opencart? Woocommerce?

Thanks.

I would first look at Magento and other true cart-as-site systems, staying away from combo solutions like WordPress and a plugin. This request is complicated enough that I think you will do better there.

If I was forced to do this in WordPress, I would look to see if there is an add-on to WooCommerce to allow for multiple checkouts in the way you want.  If it doesn't, I would install Wordpress in Network mode and add each vendor as a sub-site.  I think WooCommerce supports multi-site but if not, the folks over at WPMU Dev have a cart that does.  Having the vendors as child sites will allow for multiple carts/checkouts.

I'm taking a look at Magento, I knew only by name. It looks VERY interesting, thanks.

You're welcome. If you can handle its complexity, Magento is the probably the best choice for a pure e-commerce site.

I'm installing it locally to test it now, I think I'll go with this since it seems worth learning and it has the possibility of implementing the features I need.

Thanks, one of my shortest-lived questions ever.
