    nopCommerce

    nopCommerce is an ideal solution for businesses that want to tailor the customer journey for discovering and purchasing products. The nopCommerce solution is designed to adapt to you, not the other way around. The platform works best when you partner with a solution provider like ourselves. It also works well if you have a team of in-house .NET developers. A one-person shop will likely find less value in a platform like this if they're looking to spin up a small ecommerce site with just a few button clicks.

    Squarespace

    I have a gorgeous website that I made myself, thanks to Squarespace. I'm able to integrate marketing emails, SEO, analytics, online carts, pretty much instantly. If you want to get started fast, it's really great. I think if you want to customize square space and you're having trouble, it would be most helpful to hire a square space designer. That's what I would have done in retrospect.

    Pros

    nopCommerce

    • As I came from Microsoft .Net technical experience with more than 15 years in IT industry, the nopCommerce .Net based open sourced framework is the best eCommerce framework in terms of architectural perspective - such as incorporating with Entity Framework code first approach, Domain Driven Architecture, using ASP.Net MVC, Unit Testing, ...etc.
    • When my client asked for an eCommerce portal, the whole team was struggling from designing a database to identifying the requirements. nopCommerce has everything we need. All the industrial standard eCommerce features are included. It saves hours of database design, application design and also the client's requirements are easily fit into nopCommerce's features.
    • The cost of nopCommerce- the last time we paid was a $200 one time cost for using the production site. It was ridiculously cost effective. As it is opened source, the whole community is supporting and constantly making this framework better and better.
    • I set up a web site within a week using nopCommerce to sell my own products online. It was so easy to use, deploy, and set up.
    Christopher Thant | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Squarespace

    • Stupid simple to use. I know very creative people who cannot code and this is probably the easiest ever platform for them!
    • Pretty website templates and great functionality with showing off portfolios.
    • They've already figured out what are the problems that non-coding people have when creating websites and they've figured out a simple solution for all of it.
    Isabel Sam | TrustRadius Reviewer

    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

    Squarespace

    • As a wine company it would really love it if Squarespace had an easy plugin for wine club subscriptions.
    • Squarespace would be awesome if it could automatically take your photos that you upload on the site and optimize them for the web and for the website.
    • I do wish we could have more than two contributors for the basic website costs.

    It's simple to use for someone who is really good with computers as well as those who are not. I've been using my personal squarespace for years and have also helped clients build a starting page which they are later able to manage theirselves.

    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.

    Help is available directly from the back end and uses full sentence searching to find answers to questions others may have asked before. With a ton of articles and support questions documents, it is very likely that your question has been answered. If not each page has the ability to open a direct email to support. Each case has a number and can be followed. Responses are often quick and have links and directions clearly stated

    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 offers you more flexibility where it comes to customization and scaling your application. The customization and extension is easy as well as the theme and plugin structure adds a large value to the overall system.The API's introduced by nopCommerce makes it more efficient when it comes to integrations and developing a mobile application on top of your eCommerce platform.The customer owns 100% of the source code without any extra fee.
    Atul Rungta | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Squarespace

    Overall, as a designer, it makes perfect sense for small to large businesses to use a site such as SquareSpace. Costs are relatively reasonable with the ability to go in and do custom code.
    The issue is certain aspects of it, depending on the plan, you can't do. So, if you want to do API to the site, you need to use the top-tier program to do so. Even at custom code, you won't have access to the API section.
    As well, like all templates and themes, everybody is using the same style too.

    Return on Investment

    nopCommerce

    • It has been our sole platform for developing online stores for the last 9 years and our business have been growing year to year.
    • The disadvantage of nopCommerce is that it is not as well known as other competitors, which makes it more difficult to sell.
    Eduardo Adame | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Squarespace

    • The key positive impact on my overall business objectives is how simple Squarespace sites are to implement new information. Whenever our services change, we can quickly update pages or even change how the website flows, in a very short window of time. This allows me to get back to more urgent work sooner.
    • Our Squarespace site for Club Swim Show helped present our web series to potential partners; Club Swim Show went on to partner with a popular swimming magazine and reach a larger audience through that magazine's hosting thanks to the professional design of our original website.
    • Squarespace does not bring in customers to my storefront, which is fine for me, since I sell things infrequently and it is not my main business, but might work against someone who is expecting a Shopify or Etsy level connection with buyer markets.
