    Can wordpress be used to create a membership e-commerce site?
    I will have a large database of products 50K +

    I have never used wordpress before. Is it very hard to set up?

    Hi Matt:

    You're asking the believers here, so we're probably slightly biased :)

    I say yes to all your questions.

    Do you want to sell memberships as well as products? I think WP E-commerce does that, but not 100% sure.

    I don't want to do this on faith. Is wordpress designed to create a membership site that can handle 50k items?

    Well firstly you will need to check the details of any plugins you use to make sure they can do what you want.

    So as I suggested WP eCommerce you might want to find their forums, and ask them directly.

    However personally with 50k products I'd usually suggest you look for a dedicated shopping cart.

    yes you can of course create an ecommerce site with WordPress.

    mod edit - thanks rich
