Magento Open Source

Magento Open Source is well suited for small or medium-sized businesses who don't have a lot of money or time to start their online store. If our web design client can select a specific pre-made template beforehand, and they do not want a ton of complex or extremely specific functionalities, then we suggest Magento Open Source to the client. If the client is a large retailer wanting very specific features, then OpenCart or complete custom code might be a better choice.

If you're looking for a small or medium size eCommerce portal, nopCommerce is the best framework. 1. Cost = open sourced framework. You will just simply bypass the application design and development process, but you will have to code to do whatever you want to do for your business needs. It will save you a lot of time and money.2. Technical Architecture = It was created with the best application design and architecture. If you are not into eCommerce, but want to understand EntityFrame code first and domain architecture, Dependency Injection,..etc, nopCommerce is the one.3. I'm sure your business users will ask for the features that are already included with nopCommerce.

Pros

Magento Open Source

  • Magento 2 CE has a very robust document workflow which mirrors most mid-large ERP systems. There's a "papertrail" which mimics your business processes, and each part of the process is exposed to the API which makes for some great integration potential.
  • Magento 2 CE is also great for tracking customer history, saves a record for each and allows you to understand customer interests better.
  • Magento 2 CE is highly expandable, with a full marketplace of free and premium modules that should accomplish some pretty niche sales or service goals.

nopCommerce

  • Excellent modular architecture, which makes it very easy to customize for different kinds of needs.
  • It is open source, free and is constantly updated to keep it up to the latest technologies.
  • The latest version in ASP.NET Core runs in Windows and Linux with excellent performance (Google Page Speed of 100/100).
  • It has a very active community which helps to enhance the solution, develop extensions and themes and helps other users.
  • It is full of features including Multi-Store, Multi-Vendor, and Multi-Warehouse.

Cons

Magento Open Source

  • Not the simplest of solutions to use or maintain from an end-user perspective
  • Other platforms are better with regards to SEO in our experience
  • Fairly sluggish and slow compared to other platforms without the correct server specification and performance optimization work.
David Bryan | TrustRadius Reviewer

nopCommerce

  • More community templates would be great.
  • Some of the pricing can be a bit tricky, especially configured items... there is a likelihood of mispriced items with the current structure

It's the dominant force in the SMB open source market. With the continued support of eBay/PayPal, Magento will continue to evolve and should be a market leader for some time.

I have asked numerous questions and the team treats my random questions as if they are critical to the continued success of their product. They really take each users' questions to heart and strive to solve them. I cannot commend them enough on how fast they respond to questions as well as the follow-through given to things thay may or may not even be a part of their platform.

Go for a plugin based development if you would like to extend nopCommerce. This approach will make it easier for you to upgrade the software.

Alternatives Considered

Magento Open Source

Magento is hands down better than any hosted platform (i.e., BC), but only if you have a good development team. Hosted platforms are very limiting as to what you can accomplish "outside the box." Magento is much better than WooCommerce in its user friendliness and its feature set.
Lynn Thames | TrustRadius Reviewer

nopCommerce

nopCommerce is more powerful than other products. It is also a stable and reliable solution, but performance can be an issue. This is a secure e-commerce platform, scalable and flexible and has a management module to manage the store, products, customers, orders, etc. Also, it is easy to extend functionalities through plugins or code customization.

Return on Investment

Magento Open Source

  • It definitely let us start with a decent store and scale from 0 to 15,000 products without many performance issues. But that comes with a cost: we were unable to change the design of the checkout, SEO was poor, and adding banners or more store-related things was very time consuming.
  • Debugging is hard and you will break your head with some errors that break your store, and you don't know how to solve them. This was one of the reasons why we left it.
Santiago Valdés | TrustRadius Reviewer

nopCommerce

  • It saved development cost and time for our development team who don't have eCommerce experience. It saved us six months worth of designing and implementing the eCommerce application. No need to mention that our management team and business users were so happy about it.
  • Because of well architectural design, it was so easy to maintain the whole application and include add-on new features from time to time. Making changes and deployment can be done just within a few hours was absolutely phenomenal. It was the trust that technical team gain from management team to make the whole business process running smooth and so every one can sleep sound at night.
  • As our online eCommerce site, http://www.luxegourmets.com has been running more than two years now using nopCommerce, business users are looking to expand and integrate with third party tools. Without further investing and looking for solutions, we have all the tools and add-on features are already provided by the framework.
