Joomla,Wordpress,drupal and magento are the best option for the CMS ecommerce website
WordPress is the best platform where you can design your eCommerce website, and it is a content management system this is also great.
It actually depends on your needs for the specific e-commerce project & what you want to sell. If you want to sell less limited items & don't want to invest time and money, wordpress is the best. But if you have too many items, categories, subcategories, mutitple search option & enhanced features to add you should then opt for Magento.
My recommendation will be Magento due to following reasons -
1. Control through central administration
2. Ease of integration
3. Varied Currencies and languages support
4. Unmatched Security
5. Analysis and Report Generation
Along with these features Magento is also providing a wide range of extensions to choose from.
Magento is an open source ecommerce platform. Developers can modify the source code and add features and functionality by creating or installing add-ons and plug-ins as per your business requirement.
FOund what i was searching for my website !!
If you're going to build an eCommerce site, then you should go for Magento.
I disagree with your choice of CMS for ecommerce websites. Open cart only provides support for small scale eCommerce websites and have less options than Magento.

Drupal is an incredibly powerful and flexible CMS, Drupal is first and foremost a CMS and community publishing tool. It excels at search engine optimization and offers a wide variety of community features, enabling you to reach and engage your potential customers.
Zen Cart (or its parent OSCommerce) has probably been the most popular open source e-commerce solution. Since it's rather old, it's very bloated and very use unfriendly.
Magento is one of the newer ones that became rather popular lately. I can't say much about it since I haven't used it.
I've used Joomla with VirtueMart extension. It is pretty good but VirtueMart isn't compatible with the newest Joomla version that was just released this month.
Google Checkout and PayPal are free but if you want a more integrated solution you will need to open a merchant account and use a payment gateway. They all work pretty similar to each other, so you would just pick one of the supported by your shopping cart.
I think in your case it might be an overkill to use a full blown e-commerce solution. I would suggest picking a hosted e-commerce solution like Shopify or Amazon or Yahoo store. This usually comes with a monthly fee but it takes care of things like credit card payments, which normally comes with a comparable monthly fee anyway.
If you’re one of those planning to open an online store, the biggest decision you will have to make is choose which ecommerce platform to use. A variety of factors weigh into this decision including ease of use, pricing, and integrations. You can choose from customisations.
Magento is fully customisable but you will need to be either technical or have a developer to make the customizations for you.
Bigcommerce and shopify lets you customise its templates by giving you access to CSS and HTML but not change features or edit the platform code.
