This document is intended to provide instructions on how to implement the integration
between Oracle Commerce Cloud and Oracle CPQ Cloud.
Oracle Commerce Cloud is an eCommerce solution designed specifically to run in
the Oracle Cloud. The service provides you with a range of powerful tools to build a
flexible, feature-rich storefront for your shoppers.
Activities you can perform with Oracle Commerce Cloud include the following:
• Customize the design and layout of your storefront pages and preview your
• Display your store content in different languages
• Create or import catalog items
• Manage inventory
• Offer promotions
• Manage shopper accounts
• Allow shoppers to set up wish lists
• View reports about your store
• Test the visual elements of your store to determine which design shoppers prefer
• Develop custom features for your store through the Oracle Commerce Cloud web
Oracle CPQ Cloud is the only cloud solution to support the complete quote-to-cash
process - from shopper inquiry to order fulfillment. It guides users to optimal product
options and configurations from simple to complex, automatically applying discounts
and relevant up-sell and cross-sell opportunities.
Integrating these solutions brings together the capabilities of Oracle Commerce Cloud
and Oracle CPQ Cloud to provide a unified solution that enables businesses to offer
shoppers a method of interacting meaningfully with the business during the purchasing
process, and to provide agents with the means to be flexible with shoppers, improving
their contact experience and maximizing shopper satisfaction.
The integration of Oracle Commerce Cloud and Oracle CPQ Cloud targets support for
the following shopper commerce activity:
• Product configuration: The shopper or agent can configure any product that has
been identified as configurable in the product catalog.
• Shopper quote request: The shopper can request a quote for an order.
• Agent quote request: An agent dealing with a shopper contact can request a
quote for a discount on behalf of the shopper.
• Asset Based Ordering - Asset based ordering (ABO) allows you to sell tangible
assets or subscription services delivered over a period of time; for example mobile
phone call and data plans, television and broadband packages, cloud storage
service, music streaming service, etc.
This document provides instructions on how to set up an integration between Oracle
Commerce Cloud and Oracle CPQ Cloud so that relevant Commerce Cloud
information is automatically passed to CPQ Cloud, ensuring that the decision process
has all the required information and increasing the speed at which a reply is delivered
to the shopper or agent.
This document describes the setup tasks that must be performed in Oracle Commerce
Cloud and Oracle Integration Cloud in order to use this integration flow. There are
additional setup tasks that must be performed in Oracle CPQ Cloud so that the
integration works as expected. Full information about these tasks that must be
performed in CPQ Cloud can be found in the Integrating Oracle Commerce Cloud and
CPQ Cloud article on My Oracle Support.
