API Enterprise eCommerce platform perfect for Digital Goods and Services

What do you like best?

Elastic Path is a great commerce solution for those promoting digital codes and services. I love EP's Coretex API technology. It allows you to deliver consistent, real-time transactional data to everyone of your customer channels beyond desktop/mobile from the largest digital billboards and kiosks to the tiniest wearables including Google Glass. EP seamlessly integrates into CMS / marketing platforms such as Adobe Experience Manager and OpenText CEM. I also enjoy the advanced bundling, live authoring personalized mechandising, and product information management features that come ready to use out of the box. EP's subscription billing option is second to none.

What do you dislike?

EP is a great solution, although it's price point is not targeted toward SMB. There no SMB options.

Recommendations to others considering the product

When selecting Elastic Path, I would consider:

- Do you sell digital goods or services?

- Are you looking for an Omni-Channel Solution that has the ability to connect above and beyond into digital magazines, mobile and web applications, advertisements, kiosks, wearable technology and more

- Do you have a need to service commerce customers with a recurring billing solution>

- Do you require personalization, advanced bundling?

- Do you require advanced product information management?

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Elastic Path's API Coretex solution allowed for the platform to embed commerce in spaces that a traditional "built-in" CMS would not allow for -- meaning access to newer and digital channels that have never been accessible. Definitely a future proofed model. EP's subscription engine has made reoccurring billing a breeze.

Difficult to customize and requires lots of it

What do you like best?

Some of their consultants were superb.

What do you dislike?

Almost all customers will have to customize the application but it really isn't built for extensions so everything is difficult and it takes much longer than expected to get everything done. You are always afraid that you are breaking some important portion of the system even with simple customizations.

Many of the out of the box features don't work when you have millions of page views or products.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Think long and hard before going with this option. There are likely better choices.
