we have been developing a highy customized site based on wordpress and woocommerce (woocommerce version is prior to 2.0 - updating will not be possible due to tons of customizations).
--> We are planning on using woocommerce's affiliate feature --> and importing 400-500 thousand products from online shops --> to then offer a price/product comparison engine.
QUESTION: I have browsed through some forums and they often say that anything above 20k products would make more sense using Magento or other things --> they don't reccommend wordpress and woocommerce.
Do you think this is generally possible? I'm aware of the server performance I need --> but aport from having a kick ass server --> are there any limilations that simply won't work with that amount of products and categories (500k products will also have a ton of categories, we will have something around 10.000 categories).
I am looking forward to your opinions --> possibly woocommerce support has any experiences here?
Thanks a lot,
