Great value for money - it's free! Feature packed!

Feature packed which is great

Pros

It's free, what is not to like about that! There are many features and is easy to add new features to to customise to build your own solution.

Cons

When there is an update to the software, all plugins need to be compatible with the new version, otherwise you cannot upgrade to the new nopCommerce version.

.Net dev and e-commerce task, nopCommerce is best!

I explore nopCommerce for my hobby project with my group, our mentor was experienced with 6 years of dot net technologies, I really found this framework easy to work with, we make prototype but later on we struggled with tightly coupled architecture which is more towards dot net only.

Pros

It's open source, the community is strong, stack overflow and google are full of examples and solutions.
Dot net developers are easily available.
It has everything, automatic admin panel setup, multi-language support, DB setup, from architecture point of view, It's very solid.

Cons

This is all Microsoft tech stack. Also it uses dot net default rendering engine while current trends are with headless server architecture, so it's like more efforts to plan things in such way.

A great, well-built, and up-to-date e-Commerce platform

Pros

The whole project, code-wise, is very well structured making creating custom plugins a breeze and a fun experience. This platform is a very capable one with lots of built-in features. It has also been upgraded to the latest technology recently. Only a few eCommerce platforms are on this latest technology at the moment.

Cons

Even though, it has tons of built-in features, it can't cater every business out there. The good thing is, since it's well-built, the platform can be easily (and properly) extended.

Great eCommerce solution!

Pros

Probably the most complete out of the box eCommerce solution I have encountered out of the box. We've been using this for the clients for more than 2-3 years now and we love it. Having flexibility in building your own plugin is great way to customize the site on based on a client's specification is great as well.

Cons

I haven't really noticed anything bad in nopcommerce that stays for long. When there's something that the community doesn't like, they usually patch it up in the next version.

Great free e-commerce system! Fully functional - advanced features. Support lacking, however.

Great free e-commerce product - nice UI. Fully featured! Highly recommend!

Pros

It's great how this software is totally free, including some free plugins that extend the software even more!
I like the new UI design that recently came in.
The development team are always keeping the code and back-end technology up to date as the back-end code uses the latest .NET Core technology that's out! Well done team.
The built-in functionality is full-featured - amazingly so actually. So many advanced features that you may not use but is always good to have in case you do.

Cons

The support team is lacking but what can you expect from a free product. I contacted the support team on a bug that was occuring in the MailChimp module that the core team also created with no replies weeks later.

Best and easy to use shopping cart

Pros

Being an eCommerce consultant, I have come across many eCommerce platform since 2003. I found nopCommerce is one of the powerful ecommerce solution for the store owner. Be it is simple store or multi-vendor or multistore set up, development and management is super easy. Its plugin based architecture, unbeatable. The new version of nopCommerce 4 is on Asp.NET core 2, with this new release they have improved significant amount of performance on their shopping cart. Moreover this is complete free-to-use. Store-owner can use this full range of software without any sacrificing the features for complete free. A nominal charges will be applicable for copy right removal.

Cons

I have gone through their reporting part and I found they need some improvement there. I hope, with their next releases they will improve this part.

I have been providing this application to my clients since it was first available. Best quality.

Pros

Easy to integrate into current websites and uses the latest tech to provide a secure service. Forums provide plenty of new ideas and workthroughs.

Cons

Bigger updates sometimes require better server configurations. It would be nice to have a clear upgrade path for hardware along with software.

Very useful

It is completely flexible and can be customized according to the needs of each store.

Pros

Complete support from nopCommerce Team, good documentation (many languages available).
It has a lot of tools that help us to customize any store:

Flexible and responsive design to be compatible with mobile devices (Apple iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Windows, etc.)
Multi-store operation support
Can handle multi-vendors for drop shipment operation
Products classification in categories and manufacturers
Categories can also be fully nested to any desired level (sub-categories)
Products can be assigned to more than one category or manufacturer

Cons

The main problem that nopCommerce has is that not many people know it, so it is difficult to find developers who know how to use the platform, but only need to spend some time to learn how to use it

Best Open Source E-Commerce in .NET World

Faster Access Shortest Time to Market for ECommerce Portal

Pros

NopCommerce is Ease of Use, Can be easily extensible and Thoughfully Architected
IMHO NopCommerce is best full featured open source framework to build ecommerce portal of any size

Cons

Nopcommerce is little slow and memory hungry, as it need little higher hosting plans
also It Uses EntityFramework which has poor performance against various other ORMs in .NET community
NopCommerce should use Dapper instead of EntityFramework

Great eCommerce for all small to large size application

we are working in nopCommerce from more then 5 years and we have developed more then 100 sites using nopCommerce. the main benefits is its open source so we can customize nopCommere as per client needs easily also as its pluggable we can create plugins so its easy to upgrade to new nop version.

Pros

The best thing is its open source complete eCommerce solutions and it's using the very latest technology of asp.net on each new version release. Also, its support pluggable architecture so user can add required extension or create customer plugin to add custom required functionality.

Source code is well structured. Its easy to upgrade and it provide all features that eCommerce application should have it.

Another great things is there is lots of free plugins and theme are available for nopCommerce by its solutions partners.

Cons

I am little bit facing performance issue on large-scale application but on each & every new version release it improving the performance.

And this is not well known eCommerce solution as compared to others so some user are hesitate to choose nopCommerce as eCommerce solutions.

I have using nopcommerce from version 1.80 until now. Very easy to use and scalable.

Pros

Whole software is well structured. Very easy to enhance to suit your needs. We have implemented a lot of plug-ins to fulfill our customer requirements, they are very happy with this software.

Cons

The license copyright removal is a bit expensive feedback from our customers. May be more choice on database instead of only mssql and sqlite.
