Markets help you target merchandising and create more personalized user experiences. For example, you can create a 20% off promotion for Independence Day in Canada. Only products in the Canadian market are eligible.
A single site can have multiple markets, each with its own product catalog, language, currency, and promotions. The market determines which products and prices a customer sees on the website. When creating a market, you can define a geographic entity (such as region, a country, or a group of countries).
Because developers implement markets during site creation, each implementation can be different. Some sites let the visitor select a market on the storefront. Others use URLs for different markets, such as yoursite.uk and yoursite.de. A site can also use a visitor's IP address to determine the appropriate market for their location.
