Development and module installation needed

Connect with the Commerce Connector Pack

The main focus of the Commerce Connector Pack is to connect magnolia cms to any type of PIM or commerce system that offers APIs. The central feature is to pick product or catalog information from these external systems and integrate it into magnolia-based components like carousels and teasers. Everything is done through magnolia's user interface, so you don't need to switch application contexts.

The module will offer you the option to choose any type of product information from Pimcore and display it however you like inside Magnolia. You can integrate it through a custom connector module, which could be integrated through Magnolia directly or an implementation partner of your choice. An alternative is to use the predefined connector mentioned below.
