In May 2008 use-IP were pioneers with Magento.
The ace developers at Interactive Red did an incredible job to get us up & running with Magento at that early stage.
Magento is probably the most comprehensive open source (free) webshop software available.
It's not for the feint-hearted.
It needs some serious hosting power.
It has a fantastic set of built in features, and is very extensible.

Just been asked if we'd use the same again - possibly, but we'd recommend that you take a look at:

MagentoGo - managed/hosted Magento
JigoShop for WordPress
Lemonstand

And, most importantly, if you intend to have a custom look developed for your webshop, find a website development partner that you're confident that you can get on with and discuss the project with them before investing time, effort and money.
