NRO vs. Shopify


What is NRO, and how is it different from Shopify?  I see you have an integration with CounterPoint.  What does it do?  Thank you for your help.



Thank you for your interest in Modern Retail and our CounterPoint Integrator.  I would be happy to talk to you about the differences between NCR Retail Online (NRO) and Shopify.

In a nutshell, NRO is NCR’s e-commerce solution, which is really a modified version of Magento.  My understanding is you can only implement an NRO website by working with NCR directly. 

Shopify is a popular hosted e-commerce solution and can be connected to CounterPoint using our Integrator.  In fact, our Integrator can connect CounterPoint to the following e-commerce platforms:  Bigcommerce, Shopify, WooCommerce and Magento.
