Store Management and Store Finder

Using Intershop Commerce Management, organizations can manage subsidiary "physical" stores. This feature supports the special shipping method "Pick Up in Store", intended to serve models in which orders are fulfilled via subsidiary stores.

If customers chose the in-store pick-up, they can select their store upon checkout using a store finder wizard. The store finder wizard as shipped with the reference storefront exposes various data entry fields to narrow down the range of stores, including country, ZIP/postal code, city, and state/province.

The stores offered through the store finder wizard are created and managed by the channel order manager in Intershop Commerce Management. In Intershop Commerce Management, stores can be created manually or imported from an XML data source.
