This section describes how to define markets in Episerver Commerce.

Browsing markets

Go to Commerce Manager > Market Management > Markets and expand the markets. The market overview displays existing markets with their languages, currencies and status (active or not).

The Default Market defines the language and currency used as fallback for markets that are not specified.

Creating or editing a market

  1. Go to Commerce Manager > Market Management > Markets. The markets list appears.
  2. Select Create New > New Market, or select an existing market in the list. The Market Overview tab appears.
    • Market ID. Enter an identifier for the market.
    • Market Name. Enter the name that is displayed in the markets list.
    • Market Description. Enter notes about the market.
    • Is Active. Yes to activate; No to deactivate.
    • Countries. For each country you want, select the country and click Add.

    A website can exist in many languages. By defining market languages, you provide the possibility to read content in a desired language for a selected market; Selecting English as preferred language does not automatically mean that a visitor belongs to the US or UK markets. You can provide content in English for a Swedish market, for non-Swedish speaking visitors located in Sweden.
