commercetools is a cutting-edge, cloud-based e-commerce platform that is used by many e-commerce businesses worldwide. Through its powerful APIs and microservice architecture, commercetools provide the basic building blocks for the new digital commerce properties. Being headless, commercetools allows you to improve brand value by delivering an engaging experience for your customers across any touchpoint.

commercetools Experience Extension

Contentstack’s Experience Extensions offer many ways to integrate commercetools and other third-party applications directly into the CMS. With the commercetools Experience Extension, you can search and fetch products from commercetools and display them in a field in your content type.

Using a Contentstack Custom Field, you can integrate the commercetools extension into your content type which will enable you to pick and choose the products via commercetools’ APIs. This Experience Extension allows content managers to select a product as the input value for that field.

Contentstack and commercetools Integration Use Cases

Contentstack’s commercetools Experience Extension opens up many possibilities. Here are some real-world use case examples:

Publish Product Data on Multiple Platforms

Simplified Product Listing

Managing product listing can be a difficult task, especially if your catalog contains numerous products. Using this extension, you can fetch a list of products directly from commercetools — including all relevant product details — and add it to your content type.
