eCommerce on DotNetNuke is now fast, flexible and free with the award-winning NB_Store module suite. This VB.Net project supports multiple languages and tax levels. It features display templates, management roles, product attributes, stock control, image processing and much more!

Assistance with code, feedback, donations, documentation, and support are required in order to make any free open source product viable and successful for all. Please join up at Codeplex and offer your support.

We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of NB_Store version 2.1.7 - Download Now

Development since version 2.1.0 has focused on three areas:

  1. Greater flexibility for those who want to build their own unique store
  2. More powerful and useful by default for those who want a working store immediately
  3. Sponsored developments for those who have had special requirements

NB_Store is a unique module suite in that it exposes so much of its configuration as templates. This has allowed DNN site builders to tailor the store entirely to their own requirements. The new release builds on this flexibility with many additional tokens and templates, and in particular, conditional content display tokens.

Such great flexibility can be a barrier for those without the skill or desire to create their own configuration, and to resolve this, we have created a set of templates, providing both an example of what is possible, and also a complete and fully functional store straight out of the box.

NB Store also has a growing list of features that are the direct result of sponsored community requests. This additional development option has seen NB Store implemented in some highly specialised ecommerce scenarios.

Hi Sandeep,
Have you read the section "Importing CSV file formats" in the documentation.html that's installed with NB_Store.....BackOffice>Admin>Help.

I've never used Catalook so I've never tried importing from it, but unless you re-format the XML or do a mapping of the CSV it's not going to work.
