Enterprise E-Commerce with Magento

Magento is an open source application for e-commerce services. It was developed by the US-American e-commerce specialist Varien Inc. and initially published on March 31st, 2008.
Magento brings a modern architecture, high flexibility, maintainability and enhancability as well as a huge list of built-in features to the e-commerce market.

Integrating Magento into TYPO3

You have a running TYPO3 and separate to that an Magento-Installation? You want to combine them into one Frontend? You are sick of searching a good Shopmodule for TYPO3?

TYPO3 + Magento = Typogento is a solution based on combination of two Plugins/Extensions for TYPO3 and Magento.

What is Typogento?

TypoGento is a middleware service that connects the content management system TYPO3 (version 4.2+) and the e-commerce application Magento. This enables companies and organisations to seemlessly include feature-rich shopping possibilities into their web site. It was initially developed by the German web development agency Flagbit.

Because both of the integrated products are open source projects the middleware is for free as well.

Take a video tour through both the frontend and the backend to get a feel for Magento’s customizable, feature-rich storefront and the flexible Administrative Panel.
