Learn all about setting up a nopCommerce project in Part 1!
I’ve been using nopCommerce for my e-commerce clients since their 1.4 release. To say that it’s progressed significantly since then (version 2.5 as of this writing) is an understatement of epic proportions. The improvements in functionality and usability have been amazing, and it just keeps getting better. One of the most significant additions to nopCommerce has been the introduction of plugins and widgets.

With free and premium plugins/widgets available, as well as the ability to select custom themes, you’ll find that customizing nopCommerce is amazingly painless.
Let’s start with the best way to find plugins, widgets and themes for nopCommerce; the nopCommerce.com website.

For this instance, we’ll choose 2.5, the version we’re currently working with. Learn More
