nopCommerce is a self-hosted, open source ecommerce platform, founded in Russia and originally launched in 2008. Unlike most open source ecommerce platforms which are written in PHP, nopCommerce was created with ASP.Net (written in C#) which is a Microsoft specific development framework. Since its initial release, it's been downloaded over 3 million times and currently powers over 60,000 live stores according to their website. There's over 1,500 integrations (plugins and themes) available and it's certainly seems to be the dominant open source ecommerce platform in the ASP.net space.
nopCommerce does have an order export option built in, but strangely there's no option to export orders as a CSV file, so slightly more work is involved to export your orders than you might expect. Firstly, visit Sales then Orders in your nopCommerce admin panel and click the green Export button. You'll then need to click Export to Excel. This doesn't download a CSV file, but a formatted Excel file (complete with hidden rows, colour formatting and so on). Once you've opened this file, you'll then need to unhide all the hidden rows and then delete all rows without a value in the OrderId column, before saving the file as a CSV file ready for import into RFM Calc. For our comprehensive video guide on how to export nopCommerce orders as an Excel file and how to convert this into a workable order CSV file, please see the video guide below:
