Merchant Integration

The Shopware Enterprise Merchant Integration allows you to implement a distribution network in which merchants and suppliers can be connected and integrated into an existing system landscape. So the online shops of an unlimited number of commercial merchants can be connected to and integrated with a master shop by means of Shopware’s middleware technology. You can also make pre-configured shops available for merchants. The Merchant Integration thus automates numerous work processes within large and complex distribution networks and helps you efficiently handle product distribution.

  • Own distribution network through connected merchants
  • Highly scalable system landscape with rental shops
  • Product range control based on individual supplier assignment
  • Considerable time savings owing to a high automation potential

B2B Suite

The often complex requirements for representing B2B functions in eCommerce require a high degree of individuality and integration with traditional business processes, and the B2B Suite was designed and developed with this precise task in mind. You can therefore expand the standard Shopware Enterprise functionality with the B2B Suite using a comprehensive and very powerful B2B framework, which ensures a seamless integration of the B2B Suite into existing workflows and processes.

  • Powerful B2B framework with an extensive feature set
  • High degree of integration through the framework approach
  • Tight control of rights and roles, budgeting and approval processes
  • Targeted customer approach through a customer-specific price function

The B2B Suite provides a comprehensive set of features, including rights and role management, approval processes, budgeting and quick ordering. As a framework, the B2B Suite can be adapted to individual customer requirements and also provides some of these functions in the form of a Shopware plugin as part of a reference implementation. These and other features make the Shopware B2B Suite a high-quality framework that can be used to professionally implement individual and complex requirements for your B2B business.

Self-administration function for corporate customers
Especially in larger companies, it’s often that case that more than one employee is authorised to purchase goods. Every employee might have access to a specific quota and be assigned additional special rights and roles. Complex hierarchies of this nature can be easily implemented with the B2B Suite and configured for each customer.
Rights and roles
The comprehensive rights and roles management feature gives customers the option of specifying and restricting the rights of their own employees with a high degree of precision. In this way, individuals can be sorted according to their roles. A common example includes the “Admin” role, who has all rights, and the "HR manager" role, who is allowed to create and edit the records of new employees. It’s also very easy to create roles that set responsibility for budgets.

Due to the hierarchical organisation of roles, responsibilities within the company can be clearly differentiated. For example, it can be defined that an employee can only manage employees who are their subordinate.
Approval process
An approval process regulates the amount of money an individual can use when placing an order. Should they have a fixed amount, they are allowed to purchase freely until their budget has been exceeded. Should they go over, the order will be sent to their superior for approval, who must then check the order and has the option of editing it or leaving a comment. This process can be further refined by limiting it to products, categories or prices.
Field service employees
The field service functionality makes it possible to define employees who have access to multiple customer accounts. Employees can then log into the frontend as one of their assigned customers, wherein they can place orders and access other relevant functions. Of course, all guidelines, quotas and budgets defined by the customer still apply.

This function is therefore an important tool for integrating existing sales structures into the B2B Suite and facilitating customer-specific consultation and sales.
Customer-specific prices
Prices and conditions tailored to specific customers are the rule, especially in the B2B segment. Accordingly, the B2B Suite offers interfaces that allow individual prices to be entered per debtor. These interfaces also allow project-specific connections to be made to enterprise resource management systems or other price databases. Live price queries can also be integrated on request.
Offer requests
Next to individual prices, it’s also very common to create unique offers in B2B. To meet this requirement, we integrated a request function into the B2B Suite, which gives customers the possibility of sending an entire shopping cart to the shop owner with an offer request. The shop owner can then review the request and respond directly via the backend. The shop owner has the option of granting a discount, altering the amount or leaving a comment on the order. The customer can add the adjustments to their shopping cart and replace the order. A purchase agreement only comes into effect following the approval of both parties.

Enterprise Marketplace

Similar to those found in city centres, you can build your own marketplace where online shops are linked to various retailers. Here your shops are able to distribute the products of your connected retailers through one central B2C online shop.

  • Customised marketplace solution with connected suppliers
  • Enhanced brand awareness due to a high degree of customisation
  • Flexible fee control through data provision
  • Constantly updated data due to automatic product updates

Shopware’s middleware technology receives the product data from all connected shops, which is them imported into your marketplace. The connected retailers do not necessarily need a Shopware shop, as product data can also be provided via a CSV file. A real-time update in the central global store’s checkout process ensures that product data, including stock and prices, are always up-to-date and orders from retail items are automatically forwarded to the respective ERP or shop.

Pricing Engine

The demands of complex eCommerce projects often go beyond the scope of fixed pricing structures. When it comes to effectively segmenting target customer groups, offering multiple price points is a must for any scaling business. Pricing Engine – the latest addition to the Enterprise Accelerators – flexibly manages even the most intricate pricing models.

  • Centrally manage your pricing models
  • Highly configurable and flexible
  • Extremely powerful with millions of prices
  • Uniform gross prices possible for all lists

The full suite of features made available by the Pricing Engine make it a powerful tool for managing complex pricing models in your online shop.
