Why use nopCommerce?

6 years ago
I request community to help me list major important points in favor of nopCommerce which can help someone looking for an e-commerce solution, on why he should be using nopCommerce?

Why use nopCommerce?

* easy to use
* many features, some of them are not even available in many Proprietary software which are priced $$$$
* developed in true opensource nature - the nop team is open to discussion / suggestion and criticism and improves nopCommerce very well
* most stable, reliable and bug free opensource e-commerce solution (I can't remember a single bug which was reported and not fixed immediately by incredible nop team!)
* nopCommerce can be used as a platform rather than a simple e-commerce script http://carlosmartinezt.com/2013/11/nopcommerce-as-a-platform-part-1/ and http://carlosmartinezt.com/2013/11/nopcommerce-as-a-platform-part-2/
* can be easily modified and in lesser time compared to other competitive cart solution (like magento & prestashop) because its architecture is very well defined, is predictable
* active and growing community support
* nopCommerce can be scaled very easily to support millions of products
* works very well on Dot Net framework using the latest components
* nopCommerce is updated regularly by the nop team with new features, and all the updates / new revisions are more and more reliable
* nopCommerce is the only opensource e-commerce solution with multi-vendor and multi-store features!
* nopCommerce is modular and is easy to customize and extend using a plugin
* developing / customizing nopCommerce theme is very easy
* many plugins, add-on modules and theme options are already available (although options in themes are still very less compared to other e-commerce solution)
* all of above means - lesser total cost of ownership for e-commerce retailers using nopCommerce

* It is the only well featured shopping cart in .Net MVС framework. The rest are in PHP
* It the most popular e-commerce open source application in .Net and one of the featured applications in the Windows App Gallery
* Nop has 5 years of successful history int the market with around 30 releases
* There are nearly hundred solution partners plus other free lancers that can assist in the development of the store

Update 17 June 2014

* With release of nopCommerce 3.4 - nopCommerce is getting better and better - its now more faster out of the box

Now its your turn to add some more!

Carlos and you have done a great work. Here are my 2 cents:
* It is the only well featured shopping cart in .Net MVS framework. The rest are in PHP
* It the most popular e-commerce open source application in .Net and one of the featured applications in the Windows App Gallery
* Nop has 5 years of successful history int the market with around 30 releases
* There are nearly hundred solution partners plus other free lancers that can assist in the development of the store

Boom. Web Forms are a frakin' nightmare to deal with.

I originally did my site in Web Forms because that was all I knew. Let's just say site organization got outta hand. 2nd iteration was with JSP and Spring. Yuck. I did my own standalone MVC app and ended up pretty much integrating most of my custom stuff over NopCommerce. Never tried PHP because it looked too much like classic ASP.
