Companies using Sitecore Experience Commerce for their ecommerce solution continue to benefit greatly from the plugin architecture available. Our team at XCentium continues to create new innovative plugins, extending the functionality and ease of use of Sitecore Experience Commerce for business users.

In a recent project, I tackled the task of integrating OWIN (Open Web Interface for .NET) claims-based identity with an on-premise Active Directory. In this blog post, I will look into basic details of how to work with AD (Active Directory) Domain Services in a .NET application.

Los Angeles, CA, May 7, 2019 — XCentium, an award-winning digital consultancy, announced today that they have created and launched a Subscription plugin that enables Sitecore Experience Commerce clients to sell subscriptions to their customers. XCentium is proud to be the first Sitecore partner to enable this capability on the Sitecore Experience Commerce™ platform.
With the Subscription Box Industry booming, it is more important than ever for companies is to be able to leverage their ecommerce solution to claim their share of this $2.6 Billion dollar industry. While the additional constant revenue source is appealing to companies, what is ultimately important is to stay relevant by delivering an engaging customer experience, in the channel customers want to be reached. Recognizing this, our XCentium team, led by Director, Kautilya Prasad, decided to create a Subscription Plugin for Sitecore Experience Commerce.
A seamless checkout process is an important aspect of B2B Commerce. We want the process to be as quick and painless as possible. Any delays will make users think twice about finalizing the order. One way to enhance the process is to preload address books for users at the time of site launch. Most users do not want to retype their Bill To and Ship To addresses at checkout, if that information has already been provided and stored in the system. A simple preloaded address book is a quick win and provides a great user experience in the first step of the checkout process. Below are steps to mass preload address books using existing data in your system.
