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.
