Easy for developers and designers

nopCommerce employs an extensible plugin architecture and theming mechanisms that work well without touching the core. The code base follows the best practices like Inversion of Control, Separation of Concerns, ORM, Automapping, etc and is always updated with the latest versions of ASP.NET MVC.

nopCommerce can be easily modified and in lesser time compared to other competitive cart solutions because of its well defined and predictable architecture. It is the only well featured shopping cart in ASP.NET MVC framework with dependency management via Autofac, which integrates both with MVC and your custom code. nopCommerce is easy to extend because of ready-to-use data layer utilizing the newest Entity Framework with Code First and Fluent API.

Built-in user management with all the required features like external authentication, password recovery, OpenId, and ACL (access control list), allows fine-grained permissions management. Everything in nopCommerce is 100% extensible mostly due to the fact that it is based on ASP.NET MVC and uses these technologies properly.
