Some CMS selection dilemma

hello,

i have posted few months back about launching my web & SEO consultancy and currently, heck, i pulled it through and kickstarted my firm in january this year. Completed one project so far for a well known camera company, and was working for the second project now. i have 3 other projects in queue while working on the current one - a simple corporate website using wordpress for a thermal insulator company.

my questions is;

Q1. is it appropriate to use wordpress for a corporate company’s website? what is the best CMS that suit a corporate company website if the candidate isn’t wordpress? (i need more suggestion on this one) my current client utilizes some crappy old static website created from frontpage 98 (hell yeah thats stone age), and my task it to migrate them to a CMS site. SEO, SMO & WSO side no probie, as that was easily taken care of.

Q2. My 3rd project is a sandwich bar client. This project was supposed to be my first one in January and since the client is experiencing some setbacks and hiccups in their company, this project got delayed further until i finished this current project for this thermal insulation company. I fired up some questions regarding the best ecommerce CMS out there few months back and when im just about to be convinced about workin with Magento, my client refuted my choice of ecommerce and forwarded me this site - https://www.europacafe.com/ in hope i could emulate this one. Dear gurus, can some one enlighten me of which ecommerce CMS package that resembled (the closest) this Europacafe website??? My client’s business nature is a home delivery sandwich service where customers can register, store credit card details, had a merchant gateway, customise the item, confirm, check out, select mile radius. etc

Q3. My 4th project is a car hire company client. Any ecommerce CMS that is suitable for this type of business - book a car & pay online?

Any headsup on these scenarios is greatly appreciated. im really new and crawling and im not a good programmer.

so far, thanks for the guides in my past postings. it does help me alot.

Not really. You have to hack the PHP code a lot to do it well, and that’s a waste of time in my opinion.

what is the best CMS that suit a corporate company website if the candidate isn’t wordpress?

ExpressionEngine, hands down.

You can pretty make any eCommerce package look like any other. You could emulate the look of the europacafe site with any CMS. BUT, it is rather fugly in my opinion, and not easy to use. (Try to add an item to the cart. I couldn’t!)

If you are not a coder, I’d suggest using a 3rd party shopping cart. Saves a lot of hassle and security worries. You can also style them to match your site. There are many examples, such as FoxyCart and [URL=“http://www.shopify.com/”]Shopify.

Afain, ExpressionEngine, with a 3rd party shopping cart as mentioned above.

thanks alot ralph. those advices are really helpful!

i have looked at those and they are paid options, is there any good free ones for recommendation? im afraid those options above are way to costly for me.
