Pros: Aimeos is a huge system to build e-commerce solutions: from simple shops to complex marketplaces, it has a host of features to accommodate every need. Multi-language, multi-currency, multi-site projects with hundreds of thousands of products are possible, plus it is compatible with multiple PHP frameworks like Laravel, Symfony etc.

It's very fast, is costantly updated and support is good.

Cons: Depending on the type of project and on the amount of customizations to do, the learning curve can be steep, but I guess this is normal for such big software packages. Documentation is extensive but not always helpful. Fortunately the dedicated online help forum is a good resource to receive tips from the package creators.

Pros: Very customizable, good performance, sane and very flexible database layout. Neat backend interface.

Cons: The templates are messy. The API around creating and updating records for products and their attributes is somewhat unwieldy, but that was apparently addressed in a newer version. Having mandatory attributes and attribute sets would be nice, but I hear it's in the works.

Overall: Aimeos allowed us to quickly adapt to a client's very custom needs without much fuss. We wrote our own frontend, and were able to turn it into a headless E-Commerce solution. The integration with a CMS (Typo3) was good, and one of the main selling points of our product.

Pros: Aimeos is a large and nevertheless very fast e-commerce system. It is suitable for small to giant shops and contains all kinds of sales possibilities ("normal" articles, download articles, variant articles ...)

The possibilities to create and combine languages, countries, regions, payment and shipping methods are highly configurable, so that there is no application that cannot be covered. The connection to several PHP frameworks is also good (TYPO3 is fine for me ;-)).

The support is very good and fast!

Cons: The documentation is large, but partly still a bit complex. But you can get help in the forum easily.

Overall: We created a shop using aimeos with TYPO3, some products only but currently growing.

Pros: It is written to fit in multiple existing frameworks. Such as for us, it was easy to get a working setup by integrating Aimeos into TYPO3. It was even possible to use an existing product domain model in combination with Aimeos which mainly added the basket and checkout process, and also does some more shop specific things. Contact to a usergroup or directly to Aimeos works very good and they have very fast response times. Help is appreciated, and as we could offer some small bugifxes on Github, too, there was a very fast response time on the "how to contribute" issues.

Cons: Well, while being familar with TYPO3, the MVC pattern and the Extbase framework, it was a bit hard to find the ways to extend Aimeos. But as documentation is becoming more and more completed, this is not a rel "Con" but more a task for us to update our skills.

Overall: It works very good, never had big problems and the performance feels really, really good.

Pros: First and foremost the extensibility and integration in other frameworks and software packages. From a TYPO3 point of view it´s in my opinion todays best possible ecommerce solution to accompany the CMS.

The manufacturer offers quality and fast support. In my cases this were development related questions when integrating functionality extending Aimeos already broad feature set.

Cons: I haven´t encountered any real problems until today.

Pros: - Everything can be changed

- Easy to use

- Two templating engines to choose from

- 100% TYPO3 integration

- Typoscript in combination with the Aimeos class rewrite system takes extendibility to a whole new level.

Cons: There is a lot of php magic happening inside, making debugging a little bit difficult. But once you get the hang of it, it's gets easy really fast.

Overall: We created a multishop system with Aimeos. One shop had ajax based web-to-print products, where the customer could customise the print products.

Several suppliers, one of them the print company, have a real-time connection to the shop.

The overall project complexity was rather high, but Aimeos made it a lot easier.

Pros: - Good extendibility of code and product data structure

- Fast reaction time to issues or pull requests on GitHub

- Opensource

- Well structured code

- Fast

Cons: - Some complex systems

- Stucture/Content of the templates

Overall: Integration of eCommerce aspects (especially products) into a TYPO3 website. Aimeos was exactly what we needed, some aspects of an eCommerce system but without loosing the features of a fully fledged CMS system. No need to remove those features we do not want or write an integration of a complete eCommerce system into a CMS.

There's a lot of documentation especially for the Aimeos TYPO3 integration available and we got no feedback what we could improve :-/
