Sitecore® Commerce Connect

Seamlessly integrate third-party commerce solutions and those from Sitecore with the Sitecore® Experience Platform™ to gain the benefits of context marketing before, during, and after purchase.

Consistent commerce integration

Commerce Connect is an integration layer between a front-end web shop solution and a back-end e-commerce system. Used by Sitecore partners, developers, and Sitecore Experience Platform (XP) customers, Commerce Connect delivers built-in engagement for commerce and allows a choice of third-party commerce solutions for which Commerce Connect connectors have been created for the back-end system.

Commerce Connect consists of two components: Connect Core Framework contains the abstract service layers and performs engagement activities—such as tracking page events and goals, acting on conditional rendering rules, and following up on engagement automation plans, actions, and conditions.

The second component, Connect Connectors, hook into pipelines and integrate with external commerce systems. These connectors are not a part of the core framework, but are needed since Connect cannot run as a standalone system. Developers can use Connect Connectors to integrate Sitecore XP with one or more commerce systems.

Healio integrates conference registration with content
Prior to the launch of The Wyanoke Group’s Healio.com, users had to register for Wyanoke conferences and education courses on separate websites. Sitecore Gold Implementation Partner Arke integrated Commerce Connect into the Healio environment, exposing orders and products to Sitecore. As such, an individual’s conference and education purchases can be tagged, searched, and treated like any other piece of content.
