Currently the WebStore included in mojoPortal content management system is feature complete enough to sell a few download products but still lacks a lot of needed features, it is not currently a full blown general purpose ecommerce solution. I do use it to run my business, the mojoPortal Store has been up and running since mid 2008. You may also try and use the WebStore yourself but you should test it first to find out if it meets your specific needs, functionality is fairly limited at this time, and improvements are primarily driven by my own needs for running the mojoPortal Store.
You can can Buy Me A Beer or purchase add on products for your mojoPortal site in our store, or try out the current functionality on our demo site using a fake credit card and processing through a test server.
Currently only selling download products is officially supported. We do not yet have shipping cost calculation or fulfillment tracking for shipped products.
Only MS SQL and MySql are currently supported, other data layers will be implemented once the feature is more mature and the schema is stabilized.
Currently for the customer facing side there is just a simple Product List and an optional "Current Specials" list with links to add products to the cart. There is a product details page where more information about products can be shown.
The current functionality that is already built includes the ability to configure products, offers, tax calculation, and fulfillment of downloadable products and several discount scenarios are supported.
It can process payments through the Authorize.NET, PlugNPay, PayPal, and Google Checkout payment gateways and customers can download immediately after purchase according to configurable download terms, i.e. how many downloads allowed, date range, etc.
Multiple stores within a site are supported but the payment gateways settings are at the site level so all stores would use the same commerce credentials in a given site.
Users can login and see their purchase history and download products for which the download ticket has not expired or been invalidated.
Shipping calculations and support for shippable product fulfillment tracking.

How To Use WebStore
You add a WebStore to a page the same as any other feature. It then exposes its administration links according to edit roles of the page or feature instance.
You have to configure ecommerce settings before you can actually process orders.
Note that the store administration allows configuring of products and offers. Products are not sold directly but through offers. Offers can contain 1 or more products. This allows bundling of products but makes configuration a little cumbersome. Ultimately I'd like to make a wizard for creating new products that will make it easy to create the product and the offer in one go for the most common scenario which is one product in the offer. Currently, in order to sell a Product you must first create the product and then create an Offer to sell it in.
