nopCommerce Tips: Using nopCommerce in Catalog Mode

nopCommerce is a tremendous e-commerce solution; robust and multi-functional, capable of handling thousands of products. However, there are some providers who prefer not to have live transactions on their site, but simply provide information about the products they sell in brick-and-mortar locations. For these people, nopCommerce provides a “catalog” mode – let’s see how that works.

As usual; log into nopCommerce as an administrator, and access the nopCommerce Administration section.  Navigate to “Configuration”>”Access Control List”; here you’ll see options for the default roles, as well as any custom roles you may have created.

If you don’t want anyone to be able to make purchases online, uncheck all boxes for the entire row. Learn More
