B2B scenarios usually require contract support. Contracts are purchasing agreements between merchants and business customers. Generally, they provide a frame for a defined set of catalogs and products, including corresponding price lists and promotions.

With respect to contracts, the B2X edition of Intershop Commerce Management by default allows for defining target revenues based on specific price lists. Basically, these price lists define special prices for certain products and thus, implicitly define the set of products included with the contract. In the storefront, the customers' users then benefit from the reduced prices according to their contract conditions.

Tip: Additional contract-related functionality can be implemented on a project-specific base.
