Marketplace domain modelEdit on GitHub
This document describes the key domain objects that make a Spryker Shop a Marketplace.
The following diagram demonstrates the core aggregates of the domain model of the Spryker Marketplace. The Marketplace is an add-on to your Spryker B2C or B2B project. It extends the existing Domain with Merchant and ProductOffer to enable sophisticated business models for your Marketplace application.
This model is intentionally simplified. Learn more about the core domain objects in Marketplace Merchant feature walkthrough and Product Offer feature walkthrough.
Merchant is a core Marketplace domain object.
Merchant represents an entity of a third-party seller on a shop. In other setups, such as “big-box retail”, a
Merchant can represent a branch of a chain of stores.
Merchants use Merchant Portal to manage their profile, catalog, and sales.

Merchant entity, see Marketplace Merchant feature walkthrough.
Product is a B2C/B2B e-commerce domain object.
