    A commerce suite is a packaged solution to develop an eCommerce site easily and quickly e.g. SAP Hybris, Oracle Commerce, IBM Websphere Commerce Server, Demandware, Magento etc. are commerce suites. Developing an eCommerce site using plain Java/J2EE or .Net or PHP etc. is like constructing a house from scratch (buying a plot, getting the architecture done, building the foundation, building the structure, working on interior/exterior decoration, laying out pipeline/conduits for gas/water/phone/data/cable connection etc.) whereas developing an eCommerce site using a commerce suite is like buying a pre-built house from a group housing developer and customizing the interior/exterior as per your specific requirements and getting it integrated with gas connection, phone connection, water connection, data/cable connection etc. You can imagine the amount of time you save as well as you become free from all concerns/worries of a bad design/architecture etc.

    An accelerator is a reference/sample store provided by a commerce suite and it serves 2 main purposes:

    a. For demonstrating the feature/capabilities of the commerce suite

    b. It is used as a template by developers/architects to create similar stores

    SAP Hybris provides many accelerators like Apparel & Electronics stores for B2C, Power Tools store for B2B, Financial Services store for insurance business, Telco accelerator, Grocery accelerator and Travel accelerator etc.
