(Beta) Adobe Commerce connection

Overview

IMPORTANT

The Adobe Commerce connector is in beta and only available to a select number of customers.

The Adobe Commerce destination connector lets you select one or more Real-Time CDP segments to activate to your Adobe Commerce account to deliver a dynamic personalized experience for your shoppers. Within Adobe Commerce, you can then select those Real-Time CDP segments to personalize unique offers in the cart such as ‘buy 2 get 1 free,’. You also can display hero banners and modify product pricing through promotional offers, all customized to Adobe Real-Time CDP segments.

Prerequisites

This extension is available in the destinations catalog for select beta customers who have purchased Real-Time CDP Prime or Ultimate and Adobe Commerce.

Beta customers should have access to:

In Experience Platform, create the following:

  • Schema. The schema you create represents the data you plan to ingest from Adobe Commerce. Learn more about how to create a schema that contains Commerce-specific field groups.
  • Dataset. A dataset is a storage and management construct for a collection of data. You need to create this dataset from the schema you created above.
  • Datastream. ID that allows data to flow from Adobe Experience Platform to other Adobe DX products. This ID must be associated to a specific website within your specific Adobe Commerce instance. When you create this datastream, specify the XDM schema you created above.

After you complete the prerequisites, connect to the Commerce destination.
