nopCommerce was started as most of existing open source projects. I decided to open my own online store two years ago (August 2008). But I had not enough money to purchase a good eCommerce software (> $5,000), so I decided to write my own eCommerce application (in-house application). But after three months of development I decided to release it as an open source shopping cart. Then Ben ('nopCommerce team | retroviz' forum username) joined nopCommerce team and did a lot of contribution to the project (thanks, Ben, and thanks to all other contributors). On August 2009 I decided to leaved my full-time job (software developer) to continue nopCommerce development and hired two guys for customization services. This is a short history =))

Thanks for this info.

May I ask where the name "nop" comes from? In Holland it means "almost nothing" i.e. "I bought this cd almost for nothing. Very cheap.." :)
