Audience level:

This talk shows you how to run multiple shops on one instance of OFBiz.


It can be useful to run multiple stores, even if they are selling related products (specialized stores) or if you are a distributor and want to offer your customers individual own stores (white labeling). Having only one system, which runs all of your stores can save you a lot of money. This presentation will show you, how to do this with OFBiz and what you have to think about.

Outline: 1.) What are the business needs in running multiple stores? 2.) Introduction to the part of the data model needed: WebSites, ProductStores and Catalogs 3.) One approach of white label shops: using themes. 4.) Prospects: what you have to think about and what has to be done individually.
