Pro Episerver Commerce

Creating powerful eCommerce solutions.

About the Book

This book is for experienced .NET developers who want to start working with Episerver Commerce, or Episerver Commerce developers who want to deepen their knowledge. I aim to provide a depth view of internal implementation of Commerce, how things work, why things are the way they are, how you can use API:s to create working eCommerce solutions, and ultimately, how to use the knowledge in the book to make those solutions better.

The draft is completed, however the book can be revised here and there to improve the content, and/or to update with the latest changes in Episerver Commerce. Topics discussed in the book:

Part 1: Catalog System

Part 1.1 Important concepts.

Part 2: Inventories and Prices

Part 3: The order system - selling is what (really) matters

Part 4: Events - Listen and react

Part 5: Search

Part 6: Promotions - Everybody loves discounts.

Part 7: Business Foundation

Part 8: Extending the system

Chapter 1 can be read/downloaded for free.
