Integrate and use your e-commerce content
The Commerce Connector Pack enables you to pull your catalogs of products and categories from your existing e-commerce solution into Magnolia with minimal configuration required. You can then use the out-of-the-box templating function to create templates and render your e-commerce content on your website.
The Commerce Connector Pack provides an E-commerce app so that editors and marketers can display the content retrieved .
Catalogs, categories and their products are searchable in Magnolia using the Find bar.
REST API shopping cart feature
Magnolia acts as a bridge between the cart feature on your e-commerce website and the integrated e-commerce solution.
When a customer adds a product to their cart online or proceeds to checkout, Magnolia communicates that information to your source e-commerce platform so that your stock is updated, orders sent and so on.
Magnolia manages both guest carts and authenticated carts. A full REST API is provided to handle interaction between the cart, Magnolia and your e-commerce solution.
The REST API also allows you to get data on product and categories, making it suitable for headless implementations.
