As the Internet evolves and
consumer expectations grow, simple shopping cart sites have difficulties
retaining customers. Online shoppers require more robust shopping
portals and solutions that can help them shop smartly by recommending
complimentary products that match their profile, or by offering
additional services and community-enhancing features.

WebSphere Commerce Professional Edition supports the Consumer
Direct business model.
Consumer Direct supports commerce transactions
involving products, services, or information between businesses
and consumers. The business can be a retailer, a manufacturer
who sells their goods directly to consumers through their
own retail outlet, or any other business that sells goods or
provides services directly to consumers. For example, a business
that sells to consumers directly through a catalog would be considered
a consumer direct business. Organizations that are not traditionally
considered businesses, such as governments, can also be considered
consumer direct sellers. Governments may provide goods and
services directly to citizens (government customers).
IBM WebSphere Commerce Professional Edition provides enhancements
over previous versions and supports the enterprise capabilities
listed in this document.
