Already proven partnership

With an established track record of successful marketplace implementations, this official partnership expands upon the work commercetools and Mirakl have already done to improve and create innovative commerce experiences for shared customers, such as NBCUniversal. The media conglomerate was looking to test and trial new digital revenue streams after learning visitors of its multiple media sites wanted to buy products related to their favorite NBCUniversal movies and shows. 

This partnership between Mirakl and commercetools, a true pioneer and leader in headless commerce, offers retail and B2B leaders the microservice-oriented, cloud-native and API-driven technologies that they need to make the most of the marketplace opportunity. We are thrilled to partner with commercetools to empower enterprises with a truly scalable solution that accelerates eCommerce agility and growth.

As the commerce core, commercetools provides cart functionality while Mirakl connects existing marketplaces that sell its products, developing the foundation for NBCUniversal Checkout.
