Rails for large-scale e-commerce: A good or bad choice?

Good afternoon,

I’m looking at all the notable CMSs and web-frameworks across any
language
(C++, Ruby, Python, Perl, .NET, PHP), for an e-commerce solution which
suits
my project.

Basically I’m creating an e-commerce store of e-commerce stores. So for
all
e-commerce stores integrated with this system, there is a shared user
database and shopping cart integrated with PayPal (but preferably
multiple
payment gateways).

Would Rails be a good choice for developing this project?

i.e. are there many predone components for this kind of thing which can
be
utilised to speedup development time?

Also, is Rails scalable enough for a system of this sort, or should I
pick a
competitor?

Thanks for all suggestions,

Alec T.
