Here is what they have to say:

commercetools is the best partner for our Multi Channel strategy. The SPHERE.IO platform uses latest technologies and gives us as a retailer the flexibility we need.

One of our goals was to approach new international markets whenever we want. With commercetools we were able to start several international online shops in the nick of time. The shops are operated through one central platform, while the country-specific data for products, currencies and taxes is adaptable. That saved us a huge amount of time.

Andreas Bernt-Bärtl
Senior eMarketing Manager, Brita

commercetools offers an innovative and secure solution that is the foundation of a strong partnership, where both parties profit from each other's success.

Thomas Aigner
e-commerce Manager, Airfield

We decided on SPHERE.IO because we were looking for an e-commerce platform with API and PIM on which we could implement a high-quality e-commerce marketplace independently. SPHERE.IO offers our partner shops a user-friendly merchant center and all interfaces necessary for connecting their existing systems.
