Forwarding data between 2 applications

Hi experts,

Is that possible to forward data between 2 different E-commerce applications (B2C to B2C, or between B2C to B2B)?

For example when the customer has made a request (for a product), but we found it's an incorrect request for that application (webshop), but can be handled in another webshop, we want to redirect that customer to the 2nd webshop with all the request-related data customer has sent in from the first webshop.

Please advise on how to do that?

Thanks!

    Hello Dave,

    In theory, the request-context remains only with that application. To share the data between applications, you have to externalize the data. If both the applications run in the same domain, cookies can be used.

    If you are running these two in SAP portal, you can leverage the SSO option to transfer the user (hence customer / consumer) information. But no one normally implement B2C through SAP Portal..!!

    Starting from User management, catalog browsing, log on process, pricing, availability etc. B2B and B2C differ in many technical and business aspects. So, before trying to find the availability of a technical solution, please layout your scenario in greater detail, start to finish, step by step navigation expected... You will soon find that you have many more questions that remain unanswered..
