MethodFactory’s Sitecore Commerce Accelerator is the foundation for our B2B and B2B eCommerce implementations. We developed the Sitecore Commerce Accelerator to integrate with the Sitecore Web Accelerator for Web Content Management. It includes all of the traditional web content management and marketing automation functionality that we would put in place for standard public facing web, available for merchandisers and marketers to take full advantage of, including search, responsive design, and modern responsive page templates.
If your focus is on a product catalog, or an eCommerce site that you want to upgrade or re-platform, Sitecore Commerce Accelerator extends and enhances Sitecore’s eCommerce platform, providing your customers with a friction-free, and intuitive shopping experience, and you with the tools you need to deliver that experience time and time again. The Sitecore Commerce Accelerator includes:
- Product Catalog – browse, search, filter
- Shopping Cart
- Checkout, Security & Payment, Shipping
- My Account
The Sitecore Commerce Accelerator has different multi-use product presentation components, which can be assembled on to a page to allow marketers build a page for displaying one or multiple products based on criteria that they can set, like: on sale, or close-out, or brand filtered. The products can be displayed as a carousel, grid or any number of presentation formats. Other product detail features and functions include:
- Product images: can include multiple images, exploding images (zoom over), 360 degree images, badge overlays (sale item, new item, etc.), the ability to manage the product variants like color, price, size and have the corresponding images display
