Are you referring to Wordpress.com or self-hosted Wordpress? If Wordpress.com, you are very limited to what you can do.

There are a quite a few ecommerce plugins and solutions for self-hosted Wordpress installs that allow you multi-currency options.

I always use self hosted wordpress sites.
I think that wp has quite a few e commerce options. I am sure it comes down to what you are used to working with, what your preferences are.

I am not very techie so WP works great for me

a self hosted wordpress site will let you do anything, as long as you have the skills to figure out how to do it. It's just like writing a site from scratch html, except there are many pre-built frames or "themes" that you can use as a starting point.

the tech skills are slightly more difficult to come by, but that's not just wordpress, that's website building in general. but there are soooo many tutorials for editing wordpress sites/themes, that it's what I would recommend to pretty much anyone.

if anyone needs help figuring out how to do a self hosted wordpress site, or site building in general, I would be more than happy to answer any questions that I can

I agree with wordpress, its a great platform to start a website. If you want an easier site you could use blogger.

I use wordpress, too.

A friend of mine who is a big internet marketer introduced me to a plugin (that cost me $98) called Optimize Press. I now use it to make my WordPress Blog a lead capture page.

It is really awesome, because once it is loaded as a theme, it is point and click to turn your blog into a really nice looking sales funnel, presenting your business to your visitors while you sleep.

I know some of you have seen my capture page. I created it using this theme.

If you are presenting a business or a product, this is a simple way to capture your prospect's info, present your stuff and weed out the tire kickers. Just do a google search if you want to check it out.
