Course information

Course Summary

B2B Commerce Organization is a spend permission and tracking feature included with SAP Commerce Cloud. This powerful feature enables a purchasing administrator to set up their organization and give their individual buyers permission to make purchases on the company’s behalf. All purchases are subject to spending limits and approvals and tracked using cost centers and budgets. The entire feature is a self-service for the customer. Commerce Organization is based on creating units that represent the customer’s organization. The seller can then link the customer’s organization to other features of SAP Commerce Cloud, such as Sales Org and custom catalogs.

In this course, you’ll learn how the B2B Commerce Organization feature in SAP Commerce Cloud is presented in a Spartacus-based storefront. The course will provide you with an overview of the concepts of Commerce Organization and then go into detail about how to set up units, users, cost centers, budgets, shipping addresses, and spending limits in a Spartacus-based application. The course will conclude with demonstrations of how purchasing is affected by B2B Commerce Organization, and how all the parts fit together to make it easier for customers to allow buyers to make purchases as needed, while letting buyer administrators control and track spending.
