Adobe Commerce Connection adobe-commerce

Overview overview

The Adobe Commerce destination connector lets you select one or more Real-Time CDP audiences 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 audiences to personalize unique offers in the cart such as ‘buy 2 get 1 free,’. You can also display hero banners and modify product pricing through promotional offers, all customized to Adobe Real-Time CDP audiences.
