eCommerce Website Using Power Apps Portal

We are just completing implementing an ERP Solution using Dynamics 365 FO for Finance and Supply Chain. The users use Dynamics 365 Field Service to perform sales on field.

 

The next step is to create a B2C eCommerce Website. The website will use D365 FinOps data e.g. products, pricing etc and D365 Field Service for product sales,service and delivery.

 

My question are below:

  1. Can we build a B2C eCommerce Website with Power Apps Portals. 
  2. Are there any eCommerce websites created using Power Apps Portals.
  3. Should we use Power Apps Portal or Dynamics 365 Commerce or some other product for the eCommerce Website.

Re: eCommerce Website Using Power Apps Portal

Hi @SyedArh ,

For your first question, the answer is YES. You could create a PowerApps Portal based on your D365 F&O data. Currently, in PowerApps Portal, it mainly use Common Data Service as its underlying data source. There is no direct way to connect D365 F&O data to PowerApps Portal.

But the D365 Finance and Operations entities could be configured as available virtual entities in Common Data Service, so you use D365 F&O data in a PowerApps Portal.

Please check and see if the following blog could help in your scenario:

For your second question, currently, there is no public eCommerce websites created using PowerApps Portal has been released.

 

For your third question, I think PowerApps Portal and Dynamics 365 Commerce are both OK, it would depend on your detail scenario. The Dynamics 365 Commerce provide more powerful comprehensive omnichannel commerce across e-Commerce, in-store, and call center than PowerApps Portal. But the cost you spent in Dynamics 365 Commerce would be higher than PowerApps Portal.

More details about Dynamics 365 Commerce, please check the following article:

Re: eCommerce Website Using Power Apps Portal

Hi, if you already have D365 Finance, I guess you are better off with D365 Commerce https://dynamics.microsoft.com/en-ie/commerce/overview/

I don't have much information on the above technology, so can't really tell anything about licensing or any technical aspect

 

Power Apps Portals have directly integration with D365 CE, so in case you would be using that, it would be a great fit

You can still integrate it with your D365 Finance I guess, but I would think it is a lot of work

Re: eCommerce Website Using Power Apps Portal

We plan to use FO for Products and Pricing and use CE for Scheduling a service for a customer.

 

Given we will use both FO and CE which technology will be best suited for creating a eCommerce Website.

Hi @SyedArh ,

Regarding your scenario, I think the Dynamics F&O would be better. Please check the following blog for more details:
