nopCommerce

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.

PrestaShop

Being a self-hosted solution, it is well suited for people who have a minimum of technical and coding knowledge. If you have no technical skills, you may need to go with other options that are hosted. Also, if you are not willing to invest in customizations and add-ons, PrestaShop would not be the best option to go with.

Pros

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.

PrestaShop

  • Administration panel is easy and essential
  • Product configuration is ready to go and product page comes with lots of information
  • It doesn't require huge server resources

Cons

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
Brad Ranks | TrustRadius Reviewer

PrestaShop

  • Documentation and support needs to be updated and expanded. There's a lack of books, and the only support aside from the forum is official prestashop support, which is not cheap. The system is too massive to have such little support.
  • Too many things can go wrong with too little explanation as to why. Too much time is wasted trying to figure out why prestashop isn't working as intended because of this. Seems that most of the questions online are people fumbling around with vague issues and errors and no explanation.
  • Code should either be organized more intuitively, or there should be more help outlining what is going on during runtime for debug purposes. Why is there not a built in way to display the tpl that is being loaded in each section? I tried figuring out how to do it myself using the documentation but gave up. Instead I have to swim through the entire code to figure out how to do it myself. Should not be this complicated.
  • Too many things can go wrong when transferring or copying the website, which essentially breaks everything. Again, too little help and messages explaining why things don't work. Internet search shows that this is a common issue.

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

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.

In the past I have used Magento, which is a very popular platform, but personally it didn't sit well with me because of the complexity of the back-end and how inconvenient it was for developers. Shopify is more for a quick setup and hands-off approach. It's good for those who want a simple install with minimal involvement.

Return on Investment

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.
