I think WebSphere Commerce is well suited for customers looking to sell products online that need robustness and scalability as a priority. It provides a complete order cycle out of the box, or you can integrate with your existing order fulfillment. Online shopping models like digital subscriptions or a marketplace are not well suited as it requires a lot of customization

This plugin is great for a growing business that needs to move away from taking orders manually, but is also fully functional and comprehensive for businesses with larger wholesale revenue streams

Pros
IBM
  • Websphere commerce provides efficient contract based pricing. Contract based pricing greatly helps in handling prices for different business
  • Catalog filtering is one other strength of websphere commerce, as it helps to filter the show only those products that the customer is entitled to
  • Extended site model is one other strength of WCS as it greatly helps in having multiple e-commerce sites for different demographics, for branding etc

Cons
IBM
  • The e-Marketing spots contain content associated with marketing activities to target customer segment - needs some improvement. The algorithm to set up the priority of each of the Web Activity with in eMarketing spot is little bit confusing.
  • The catalog load can be simplified.
  • WebSphere Commerce is a huge application - someone needs to spend at least 5-6 years to learn about the whole application.

  • Product Table for admins to update wholesale, cost and retail pricing on 1 screen. Would be more efficient and not having to open each product to update pricing.
  • Product table to show percentage discount to wholesale users next to the price
  • Product table column to show profit the wholesale user could make if MSRP price is set or sold at retail price.
  • Product table to show more modern add to cart popup
  • Product table to allow more customisation, like font size, font style
  • Product table to allow to style add to cart button, like rounded edges, wire button, etc.
  • Allow users to select product table background color
  • Registration Form fields, please add the delivery address fields and checkbox to use physical address as delivery address
  • Registration form, also allows user to change the text the end-user sees of the standard field names like STATE, not all countries have states, but have also have Provinces.
  • Checkout screen, the users can manipulate and change the minimum order requirements after entering the checkout screen. No validation happening here?

IBM Digital Commerce was a lot more customizable and had a good engine for us to make enhancements. We were not locked down to certain integrations and we were able to utilize a lot of the features outside of the box vs using a prescribed set of features and functionality that other tools would force us to use

I've tried several wholesale plugins and always cancelled my subscription and gotten our money back. This is the first wholesale plugin we've stuck with. It's so easy and functional

Return on Investment
IBM
  • For our clients in the apparel industry, the flexibility that WCS provides to scale up really helped their online business to grow tremendously.
  • Our client in the restaurant industry can't quite leverage what WCS has to offer though as it doesn't really fit their shopping model.
  • Another positive impact is that it allows our clients to streamline their commerce system in interacting with their backend.
