Service Glossary

  • Business – the parent of a store or set of stores. The basic use of a business is to manage common sets of users, catalogs, and other services for the stores associated with the business.
  • Business Admin – a role that manages business settings, creates and manages stores, and enables microservice(s) for a business.
  • Customer– a business consumer or buyer on the Business’ B2B storefront.
  • Product – a good, service, or idea that has a combination of tangible and intangible attributes and can have multiple variants which are referred to as stock keeping units (SKUs). In Infosys Equinox Commerce, the consumer/buyer evaluates a product (for example, a men’s dress shoe available in black and brown and in sizes from 10 to 15), but actually purchases a SKU associated with the product (for example, a black colored version of the dress shoe in size 12) rather than the product itself.
  • Stock Keeping Unit (SKU) – a particular variant of a product which is available for purchase by a consumer/buyer.
  • Store – represents a specific physical location or online store of a business.
  • Storefront – a consumer-facing website that presents products, content, and promotions across multiple channels such as desktop, tablet, and mobile.
  • Subscription – collects a recurring payment in exchange for recurring product deliveries or on-going service.
  • Subscription Admin –  manages subscription requests.
