Recently, a co-worker pinged me asking about the best way to handle transforms in a Sitecore 9+ PaaS environment. My response: "Transforms are the devil, and there are often zero reasons why you need them in a new Sitecore environment." Sitecore, of course, gives us rules-based configurations out of the box, which give us a lot of control over applying different configurations for different roles and environments, but what about modifications to the web.config? In my experience, most changes to the web.config are "one-time" changes that you can make (and document) as soon as an environment is provisioned. This includes managing assembly binding redirects, which is often something that changes each time you add a new NuGet reference to your project. Read on to learn how you can externalize your assembly binding redirects, instead of having to maintain a copy of the web.config file and/or transforms.
In early 2019, our team met to consider which new Sitecore Experience Commerce innovations would be both technically feasible and valuable to companies. I am honored to share our recent contributions that have been spearheaded by several ecommerce visionaries on our XCentium team including Amrit Raj (Founder and Partner), Kautilya Prasad (Director), Balaji Thirumeninathan (Senior Project Manager) and Srikanth Kondapally (Architect).
This post is a quick a "getting started" guide to help new Sitecore Commerce developers to create and run their first Commerce Engine solution.
Many online shops allow for the use of coupons and promotion codes.
Some Sitecore Experience Commerce shops even allow the customer to use a promo code and pay for the order at a later date.
But what happens if the promotion is set to expire before the customer pays the balance on the order?
In this case, it would be satisfying for the customer to be alerted that the promo will be expiring soon, and if payment isn’t received by the expiration date, the promo will be removed from the order.

Having worked with clients on Sitecore projects for several years, I appreciate Sitecore’s commitment to continually elevating and extending their platform. Their desire to be continually the market leader as a Digital Experience Platform (DXP) and in the Web Content Management System (WCM) space pays dividends for martech teams using their platform. In Sitecore’s most recent release of Sitecore 9.2, there is a lot for customers and implementation partners alike to be excited about, including the announcement of the Sitecore Content Management Platform (CMP). In this article, I will unpack several of the highlights of Sitecore’s release and how I see them being beneficial for customers.
