Monox is more of a CMS system out of the box with social networking features.

IT has a great admin panel and ability to be fully customized by building custom web parts and a custom portal.

There is currently no pre-built e-commerce version that I am aware of however, you could extend it to be such thru custom code and custom web parts development.

You will need to program your own payment gateways, and gallery's and price options, etc.. MonoX would simply supply you with the basic framework to start and a basic user registration system with the ability to extend.

The MonoX administration and web parts system would give you a nice start if you where to program something from scratch.

But.. if you are looking for a already built full flagged e-commerce solution then MonoX is not for you.

Custom modules are esentially standard ASCX controls / Web parts (very similar technology is used in SharePoint, but MonoX does not have its heavy footprint). MonoX infrastructure frees you from worrying about the basic tasks (authentication, authorization, Web part configuration, Web part communication...) and brings some rather advanced stuff (personalization, various providers, caching, optimization, ...). It also comes with dozens of parts that are ready to use in your projects.

There are no e-commerce functionality built in it at the moment, but we will gradually publish some of the modules that were built for our custom projects. We have also used various integration strategies to use MonoX with other ASP.NET e-commerce packages (nopCommerce was our primary choice).

Denis,

Any update on this ? extending monox for ecommerce feature ? like nopcommerce ?

Also nopcommerce moved from webforms to MVC, how it is going to work if this feature is still on your roadmap for monox because monox is webforms based ?

We are aware that nopcommerce has switched to MVC, but it will not make too many changes, as third-party application integration scenarios are usually based on a "loose" approach via membership and role providers. We are working on our own ecommerce infrastructure in a majority of custom projects; we may be able to publish some of this infrastructure next year, but I cannot give any specific dates at this  point.
