Shops concepts

Current version: 10.2

A Commerce shop, as it relates to the Commerce Engine, represents a collection of policies and configurations that are applied to one or more online storefronts or physical brick-and-mortar stores. Configurations include, for example, branding experience, geographic location, and franchise.

A shop can specify a particular environment that provides a collection of policies including location and method of entity storage.

A Commerce shop has been developed as a hybrid between:

  • details specified in Sitecore XC as part of bootstrap, and

  • details specified in the Commerce Control Panel

The following figure shows an example structure of the shops configuration of the Commerce Control Panel:
