Earlier this year, the two companies announced a technical partnership to develop a WCM-driven eCommerce platform. Over the past few months, both organizations collaborated to merge shopping cart capabilities with a flexible and powerful WCM. The plug-in wraps eCommerce functionality within the WCM templates, providing a common UI experience as a shopper moves from information-heavy pages to transactional pages. The plug-in also allows organizations to offer commenting functions, product rating and cross-sell features on any transactional page – all out of the box.

Included with the plug-in is the dotCMS eCommerce Accelerator – pre-built templates, structures and applications that leverage dotCMS’ and KonaKart’s insights into eCommerce and content presentation.  The Accelerator offers enterprises a running start for building an integrated open source WCM/eCommerce web presence.  A live example of the ecommerce Accelerator can be found here -

“The lines between a great web experience and a transaction are quickly vanishing,” stated Will Ezell, CTO of dotCMS. “The integration between our two products allows our customers and prospects to deliver an uninterrupted experience for their site visitors, and in so doing increase their conversion rates.”

The eCommerce plug-in and Accelerator works with dotCMS and above, and with KonaKart 5.0.0.x and above.
