The Merchants section in Back Office is mostly used by Spryker Admins. In a B2B environment, the business partnership between a buyer (company/business unit) and a seller (merchant) is often based on a range of agreements. So you should consider the Merchant and Merchant Relation sections as a contract between the seller and buyer. Standardized flow of actions for a Spryker Admin Merchants - Spryker Admin

Merchant Relations - Spryker Admin

This is how the Spryker Admin sets up the merchant and merchant relations according to the contract conditions.


For a common B2B solution it should be only one merchant in the system, as two and more merchants are required only for B2B Marketplaces.

*** The **Merchants** section in the Back Office is designed to set up the contract conditions.

The Merchant Relations section is tight to the Company Account > Companies and Company Units sections as when you create the relation, you select the company and the respective business unit based on the contract.

In order to have a correct set, you should:

  • Have a company setup done in the Company Account section. This company is the one with which the contract is signed. (See articles in the Company Account section.)
  • Create a merchant
  • Set up a merchant relation.
