Salesforce Commerce Cloud Brief Overview

Salesforce Commerce Cloud is a cloud-based eCommerce software appropriate for B2B, B2C, and B2BC transactions. It is a component of Salesforce 360 integrated CRM, which powers the eCommerce store with a variety of Salesforce apps. It is a scalable platform that allows you to implement eCommerce tactics of your choice.

Salesforce Commerce Cloud allows you to manage several stores from a single platform. Its order management system can handle hundreds of SKUs and large order quantities. Plus, the built-in Einstein AI allows you to develop insights to drive income, such as repeat customers or personalized offers.

Salesforce’s AppExchange provides more choices for third-party extensions. The marketplace includes additional eCommerce-specific features such as AI-powered product suggestions, visual setup, and eCommerce tax computations.
