I’ve been developing a few websites with storefronts. I used Nopcommerce three years ago, and it was impressive in many ways, but its poorly-defined technical support steered me elsewhere.
The “drag and drop” SquareSpace templates allow a developer to quickly place a rudimentary SquareSpace site into production, but I don’t recommend it for sites of more than about twenty pages or a business with complex product inventory or special payment processing needs. One could quickly roll-out a good-looking modest SquareSpace e-commerce site without writing one line of code. Just don’t expect to easily expand this simple site into a large complex site, and your payment processing options are limited. Unlike Volusion, SquareSpace does not seem to offer 24/7 tech support via telephone — only via email.
One beauty of both Volusion and SquareSpace is that you don’t need to host them. Just pay a modest monthly hosting fee and let them keep your site on-line. An attractive alternative to both is BigCommerce, but I have no personal experience with it.
