"nopCommerce a solid eCommerce paltform"

What do you like best?

As a web development agency and 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. The nopCommerce community is growing very fast, too many free and paid plugins are available to use.

What do you dislike?

It's reporting part needs to improve. They have very limited reports, I hope in future release they will add more reports to use for admin users.

"Excellent"

What do you like best?

Nop is the greatest! Supports multivendor and multi-site, thus reducing the cost of purchasing additional modules to make it one. Features are great! Very easy to customise, hence no need to use a third party developer! Also, the founder, Andrei M. is supportive,. I could go on and on but just I recommend to just migrate to Nop and enjoy life.

What do you dislike?

That it is only hostable on windows server. As it is built on asp .net, it can only be hosted on specific windows servers. Due to this fact, the cost of hosting is double in comparison to the common linux server. Also need to improve on url as it costs seo to reduce.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Yes

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

E-commerce. It has improved my product tremendously

What E-Commerce Platforms solution do you use?

"The best e-commerce "

What do you like best?

nopCommerce is fully customizable : lots of settings, large choice of plugins in the marketplace and implementation of your own modules (open-source). nopCommerce is also up-to-date due to its frequent updates. Moreover, the community is growing and the multilingual documentation is exhaustive, so it is easy to solve the problems.

What do you dislike?

nopCommerce uses a chaching system that preloads the website. The first visit may seem slow.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Read the documentation and explore the marketplace, you will probably find tips and tricks to meet your requirements.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Thanks to nopCommerce I build several e-commerce that are linked to an ERP software. Moreover the attractive themes and visual effects helped me to create an user-friendly interface.

"Social Media Specialist"

What do you like best?

NOP gives good insight into consumer purchasing and tracking with different discount codes that our brand uses from ambassadors.

What do you dislike?

NOP is not user-friendly. On the backside of the website all of the landing pages have to be coded, adding product color swatches is not a simple task, and overall there are no pre-loaded design elements. Very old school way of doing web design.

Recommendations to others considering the product

DO not opt for this web platform, there are others such as SquareSpace who provide far superior web design elements.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to create a streamlined checkout process and arrange various promotions, which has helped increase our overall DTC business.

"Building a very customized E-Commerce solution"

What do you like best?

Flexibility is second only to building your own solution from the ground up. It is extremely stable given that it is open source, and the community is very active. It's also free, which is crazy because it is also good.

What do you dislike?

It's tough to complain about something that is free, but one pain point as with anything open source is that there are always a few bugs. Some you can live with others may be exceptionally painful to you but if its not hurting others it could take a while before you see it get resolved.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Actively follow updates and movement in the forums. Sometimes you will be able to help someone with a problem they are encountering and karma plays a big role in you getting your questions answered when you are in a bind.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it for E-Commerce. Being open source you can really get into the code and do some cool customization, things that with Shopify or Magento would not be available.

That being said, every time you tweak something you own it. So you need to be wary each time a new release is made that your customization will play nice with the upgrade.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We would wanted to quickly setup our online store to make our presence with the limited costs.

This is how we setup our online store with minimal cost.

"Nice CMS for the small e-commerce web allpication."

What do you like best?

I am experienced developer.

I've built and deployed several e-commerce web applications using this CMS. Here is my opinion:

- Easy for the installation (just several clicks)

- Open Source (you can modify CMS core)

- Source code is well structured

- Flexible plugin system (you can either choose one of the existing plugins or develop your own plugin)

- Easy to upgrade to new version (NopCommerce team prepared good instruction and DB update scripts, so migration to the newer CMS version is quite easy).

- Supports several types of caching (it helps to work with heavy load)

What do you dislike?

Here are disadvantages from my point of view.

- If you develop your own plugin, and use some Core services in it, you'll have to fix in after the version update (some method could be missing) (I think it is a bad backward compatibility).

- There is no Admin theme support.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want to choose e-commerce .NET application Nopcommerce is the right one.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am developer. I develop web application using this CMS.

I've realized that this CMS is a nice one for the .NET developer.

One of my clients migrated to NopCommerce from Magento, because NopCommerce is secured better.

"Perfect for modern ecommerce design customisations"

What do you like best?

The existenisible nature of the application means unrestricted functionality and using the Razor View engine makes for a customisable front end.

There's nothing to dislike, you have to keep up with the latest version, I should say the application should have an auto update function important changes are released.

What do you like best?

Has a lot of very useful features out of the box

What do you dislike?

Caching and bulk product edits.

Startup time (when developing in NopCommerce this is a factor)

"Excellent open-source retail solution"

What do you like best?

NOP is quite an impressive retail platform - easy to use, highly customizable and with a large and active community of users and developers, meaning no new idea or problem is very far from a solution.

What do you dislike?

A minor complaint - but the native structure for discounts is counter-intutive and a bit restrictive.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Moving to a cloud-based retail platform with never-ending support has freed up our in-house development team from a seemingly never-ending cycle of support and maintenance - allowing us to address other goals with that time instead.
