    From version 4.2 its also possible to install nopCommerce on Linux. I would give it 5 stars if it was also possible to use ProgreSQL or something else. On Linux you can use SQL Server, but if you want it for free you need SQL Server Express. That will be sufficent when your Website is not to big. After that you can Scale up.

    Great and concise article.

    Please, would you mind sharing more details about this ?
    “…However, it is not a 100% free eCommerce solution. You’ll have to pay for web hosting, themes, add-ons, and an SSL certificate..”

    If I download this solution and host it on my own servers and use default theme. Do I have to pay anything?

    Regards

      Hi Juan,

      Thanks for your question! I’ll try to clarify.

      When I say that no eCommerce solution is 100% free, I mean that there are always expenses related to running an online store. Very often our readers are looking for a super-cheap solution or one that costs absolutely $0 to operate. Most of the time, that simply isn’t possible. Every business comes with its expenses, and with open-source software those expenses typically include hosting, security, and add-ons.

      However, if you’re planning on hosting the cart on your own servers and sticking with a free theme, you’re one step ahead cost-wise. You’ll just have to make sure that your hosting is secure and your site is PCI-compliant. This often means purchasing an SSL certificate for about $50–$150/yr.

      In addition, depending on your shopping cart’s functionality and your business’s needs, you may need to purchase add-ons or integrate third-party software. For example, you might need an add-on to include videos on your product pages. Or, you might want to integrate Quickbooks with your shopping cart to simplify your accounting. Both of these additions will come with their own expenses.

      I hope that clears things up a bit! Thanks again for your comment!

      Liz
