NopCommerce is a free open source ecommerce solution developed using ASP.NET MVC 4.0 that uses an MS SQL Server to store information. Russian developer Andrei Yaroslavl first started working on the project in 2008 and one year later its company was founded and expanded to a company of two. Later that same year, Microsoft recognized nopCommerce as important and included it to Microsoft Web platform Installer. The nopCommerce features introduced by the first version were pretty basic and focused on the essential components of any ecommerce solution. Some examples of initial nopCommerce features include order processing, attributes, plugins, discounts and tax and shipping support.
As an ecommerce solution, nopCommerce is amongst the top providers, with a market share of 2.0% and with nearly 2 million downloads worldwide. NopCommerce is available for download free of charge, but an extra fee has to be paid for white-labeling. Starting with 2014, the documentation also became available for download free of charge. The software has an active community of developers actively working on improving nopCommerce features and providing support to those in need.
