Microsoft Commerce Server is a Microsoft product for building e-commerce systems. It uses Microsoft .NET technology.

The latest release of the product is Commerce Server 2009. It was launched at the National Retail Federation (NRF) in New York in January 2009, with its official launch at the MIX09 event in Las Vegas in March 2009.

With its inaugural release in 2000, Commerce Server replaced Microsoft Site Server, expanding on the functionality of it and establishing a focus on e-commerce functionality (rather than concerning itself with document management or content metadata). It helps create e-commerce solutions and Web sites with high-performance, familiar tools that simplify setup, management, and administration tasks.

Microsoft Commerce Server 2009 provides a comprehensive solution for many business scenarios, including:
  • Business-to-consumer (B2C) sales of tangible or digital goods or online service delivery.
    Business-to-business (B2B) scenarios, such as e-procurement and trading communities.
    B2X scenarios, combining Business to Consumer (B2C) and Business to Business (B2B).
    Self service portals using catalogs, profiles, or content targeting for personalized information delivery.
