One of my clients asked me to quickly set up a site for car stereo clearance sales that could be handed over to his employees for management. Essentially, he wanted a user-friendly ecommerce site with a professional look at minimum cost.
I considered various options, but at present the way to go for him was clearly a combination of Joomla! and Virtuemart. Zen Cart would have taken longer to set up–and cost more–and Virtuemart is much more user-friendly. Joomla! also has good template support for a custom theme that would be inexpensive and stable.
You can see the result above.
