    Is Wordpress good for an ecommerce site? Or is Magento better

      I currently have an ecommerce website ( and want to redesign it. I have dropship arrangements with a few suppliers and will be doing some affiliate marketing via commission junction. I have self taught myself html and am able to make simple changes to my site. I get frustrated when I can't figure out how to do something like set up affiliate products so a customer can't add the product to a shopping cart. I don't want to keep hiring someone to do edits to my site so am considering paying someone to build a new the using Wordpress (also want better SEO).  The assumption here is it will be much easier for me to modify it. I hope to pay less than $500.


      Is this the right decision? One developer I got an estimate from ($1500 for Wordpress ecommerce) suggested for extensive ecommerce features (which I don't need), Magento is better (and more expensive).
