sure if you can help me, the ecommerce modules you mentioned are not very matured. I don't want to do any experiment as I am running short of time, so if you can help me in integrating nopCommerce with Orchard.

Especially if you are out of time, you should not attempt to integrate nop with Orchard. That approach is almost guaranteed to fail unless you keep both separated for all practical purposes.

What would be the best way to have Orchard as CMS and Nop Commerce as a cart?

Again, I think the best way is not to. You should pick one or the other, unless you like pain, or you're willing to keep them in completely separate applications.

Completely agree.

If you want to see how much to work

Orchard more dynamic (its own types over dynamic) - Nop - more classical
Orchard use NHibernate , Nop - Entity (different migration)
Orchard use Autofac over constructors , nop - more explicit factory
Orchard use explicit templates with dynamic filenames (shapes) , Nop - static , embeded to dll
and so on

THERE IS NOT UNIVERSAL MVC SOLUTION ( CMS + eCommerce) AT THE MOMENT !

If commerce more important for you, use Nop + CMS plugin
If CMS --------------------------------, use Orchard + Commerce module

@BertrandLeRoy Do you recommend Magelia with Orchard?
our key points are
1- Developer Productivity
2- Extensibility
3- Multi-Tenancy
4- Multi-Tier architecture

Thank you in advance
