Tell me More About the SAP Commerce Cloud Connector

With the SAP Connector you can add Bynder images to products in the Backoffice of your SAP Commerce Cloud environment and to your content in SmartEdit. By searching through your Asset Bank and/or collections you can find the assets you're looking for and directly add them. The integration uses the Bynder reference URLs, which ensures that your SAP product imagery always reflects the latest version available in your Bynder DAM.

To avoid security issues at all times the connector respects the user permissions from your Bynder portal. This way, you don't have to worry about users seeing and adding content they normally don't have access to.

The SAP Commerce Cloud connector has been developed and is updated by our partner Loop.
