Features

Acquia Commerce Manager provides a connector to your commerce solution, and has the following features out-of-the-box:

  • Categories and products synchronization
    Acquia Commerce Manager stores categories in a hierarchical taxonomy, and stores products as SKU entities for every possible SKU, with nodes for the displayable products. Use Drupal to build the expected features—such as a navigation menu, product listing pages, products search, and product detail pages. These features can then integrate with your commerce solution for product details including initial price, final price, and configurable options, such as size or color, cross-sell, textual fields, and media galleries.
  • Cart management
    Acquia Commerce Manager provides a cart mechanism for products, including a customizable Add to cart option for single or multiple products on a webpage, as well as a cart summary for your website header, content summary, and support for promotional codes. It also synchronizes with your commerce solution, allowing for persistent carts if your user’s shopping experience is interrupted.
  • Checkout flow
    Acquia Commerce Manager provides a default checkout workflow you can customize to suit the needs of your organization.
  • User management
    You can use the commerce solution as a customer repository and even as authentication backend. Drupal stores a local copy of the user, and pushes it to the commerce solution after every update.
