Drupal Distributions for E-commerce

Of all the best-known Drupal distributions, most are developed for the use of nonprofit organizations, and yet some are clearly intended for online businesses. The most popular of all, Commerce Kickstart, is arguably also the most generic — as one would expect, because it has been designed from the ground up for building just about any type of Internet-based store. In contrast, some distributions are ideal for a specific industry. One example is Restaurant (Drupal 7) / Open Restaurant (Drupal 8). For the entrepreneur with a hotel, B&B, or other type of vacation rental business that requires an online booking engine, potential solutions include Roomify Casa and Easy Booking, both of which use the essential Rooms module.
