As commerce-orientated CMSs go, I've found OSCommerce to be pretty easy
to get to grips with

I had really bad experience with osCommerce.
- I used on several stores in the company I worked for and it happened few times that "fresh" downloaded will be "demaged" - the code is easy to modify because it's writen very simple. but, since there was tons of developers (community) you will find annoying number of stiles the code is written. - easy to modify, but with any modification there is big chance you will not be able to patch/update/upgrade - every time I had an issue I had to wait several days on answers/help on their forum. of course, nobody is paid to help me but if just want to let you know - don't count on forum as fast help.
- simply, my suggestion stay away from osCommerce, CRA and other derivates.

I didn't use (yet), but according research I did, I wold recommend Drupal + Ubercart
