The CMS functionality of a specialized e-commerce platform is often limited and costly to extend. With the Commerce Connector Pack, you connect your e-commerce solution to Magnolia CMS to fulfill your needs with powerful templating while retaining the strong cataloging features offered by your e-commerce solution. Magnolia also communicates shopping cart and order information with your e-commerce solution over a REST API. Magnolia provides out-of-the-box connectors to the following third-party solutions:
- Magento Commerce
- commercetools Commerce Platform
- Salesforce Commerce Cloud
- SAP Commerce Cloud (formerly Hybris)
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.
