Default X-Cart or Magento?

I am about to commission a multivendor marketplace and can't decide between X-Cart and Magento. The website has a few bespoke functionalities and the front end will be revamped. I understand Magento has a wider developer community but the vendor backend seems lacking and this is important for us. X-Cart's is better but i don't want it to hold us back as we grow. Any help or experiences would be hugely appreciated!

I came from Magento to XCart. I used Magento for years, and really liked it. However when they came out with the newest version, I installed it and found it very clunky and EXTREMELY slow. Its true Magento seems to have many developers, but there is a lot of hand coding in files when you add extensions. And if there is a conflict between extensions, its up to you (or someone you hire) to find and correct them.


There are many magento extensions I would like to see available for Xcart, and I've contacted a few developers about them. The costs involved are simply outside what I can afford. A few of them were talking over $3k, I just can't do that.


One major thing I like about Xcart is installing an add on is just a 'click', and the system automatically installs it and re-deploys the store.


I've see a few add ons for Xcart 4 I would like, but they haven't been revamped to work 5 yet.

Could you share the list of the addons which you would like to see revamped?

Its been months and I'd have to go back through all of them to see which one's they were. One feature I'd really like to see is a way to configure a product. For instance, I sell aircraft so it would look like this:


The base aircraft kit


Engine Options:



Engine 1 or engine 2


Interior Options:


Upholstery kit Pre-upholstered or not.


Basically allowing the customer to create their own estimate. I would not expect a client to order this way due to the expense, but it would allow them to see all the options and price it out.
