Now those who don’t know what is nopCommerce? For them, it’s an open source eCommerce software solution which is built on ASP.net & has strong PHP base as well. Also nopCommerce provides fully customizable shopping cart facility & helps store owners with more advantage and facility than any other eCommerce software available.
Nowadays e-commerce business involves buying and selling of goods and services which requires transmission of funds or data, over an electronic network, primarily on the Internet. And all these transactions occur either B2B, B2C, C2C or C2B businesses. Thus the platforms for ecommerce needed to be single as well as unified. Accounting, POS, inventory and order management, marketing, merchandising, customer service and financials on a cloud-based platform all should be unified on an ecommerce platform.
