1 thing to keep in mind is ease of use, Search Engine Friendly, and how big of a site are you going to operate? How many products? and so forth. Every shopping cart has it's place in the market, whether it be becuase of features or ease of use.

I have used oscommerce and magento, for me oscommerce seems a better option.

I see...
But what are the advantages of using OS Commerce instead of magento?

fortunately, because it is also 'rather' easy to modify, and has A LOT of modules, modifications, adaptations and so on.

this bit is most important.

if you add it to the fact that every kind of 3rd party provider (payment, shipping and so on) knows and recognizes oscommerce, it comes up as the sole choice.

there are a lot of nifty carts out there offering a lot of good stuff. but, none of them are able to offer the recognition and add ons oscommerce has. something like windows in a sense maybe.
in addition, magento seems to have been coded to make modifications by 3rd parties difficult. this increases the cost of hiring developers to work on it.

I've been a fan of X-Cart for many many years and when starting any new stores, that seems to be the direction I head (possibly due to familiarity). It performs well in search engines also.

CreLoaded and Magento I've played around with and like, but there's not many companies out there making extended modules for those products.

Interspire I've also worked with (last year) and while good, it just didn't meet my needs.

Very satisfied with x-cart and cs-cart. Zen is good, but you may need to add add-ons for some features.

We work with 2 main carts. Miva Merchant and osCommerce. I think both are excellent but generally recommend osC simply it is open source and there are so many modules available for it. You can pretty much do whatever you want with it. Another benefit of osC is that you will probably find hosting for it easier than Miva. Miva is good as well and one of our designers loves it. I would google Miva and osCommerce and go to their sites directly. This way you can view their feature lists and choose what is right for you.

Nobody ever seems to mention agoracart but we use it and are happy with it... We also have a pretty simple online store.
