Defining markets

This section describes how to define markets in EPiServer Commerce.

Browsing markets

To browse existing markets, go to Market Management in Commerce Manager, and expand Markets in the left menu.

The market overview displays existing markets with their languages, currencies and status (active or not).

The Default Market will define the language and currency to be used as fallback for markets that have not been specified.

Creating a market

Do the following to create a new market definition:

  1. Go to Market Management, select Markets in the left menu, then click Create New and New Market.
  2. Enter data for the market. Add the Market ID, display Market Name and Market Description. Select Yes in the Is Active field to make the market available. Add Countries, Languages and Currencies for the markets. Ensure to add a default language and currency as fallback.

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

  3. Save the market by clicking OK.

Editing an existing market

Go to Market Management, select Markets in the left menu to display the list of existing markets. Click the name of the market you want to update to open the Market Edit dialog. Make the changes and click OK to save.

Deleting a market

To browse markets, go to Market Management and expand Markets in the left menu. Select the check box next to the market you want to delete, select More Actions and Delete Selected. Confirm the deletion by clicking OK.
