Catalogs, Categories, and Products

A Salesforce B2C Commerce storefront implementation requires product data. This data is stored in a catalog that's organized by categories. For example, a merchant uses Men's, Women's, and Children's categories to organize products on their storefront.

You must create catalogs before you can configure categories or product data. You can configure product data to include variations, descriptions, images, video, pricing, and inventory.

In Business Manager, you can enter product data manually or you can import the data in an XML file and edit the data. Most customers import product data from their Product Information Management system or other system of record, and then enhance it in Business Manager.

Inventory and availability data are managed automatically using a feed or web service in combination with mechanisms in your storefront that record when products are sold. You can edit inventory lists and records in Business Manager.

You can create and manage prices in Business Manager using price books. You can also mass import price book data that you don't need to manage in Business Manager.

You can configure recommended other products that display when the shopper views a specific product.
