Features & benefits with MERCONIS for Contao

Fully automatic installation/integration in Contao

Ready To Go

Your Contao store is easy to install

Your Contao store is installed and preconfigured in no time thanks to the integrated installer. A tedious manual installation and setup of modules, special pages etc. is no longer necessary within Contao. Even more: During installation, Merconis is set up fully automatically as a complete store incl. mobile-compatible theme, demo products, etc.. You can therefore start directly with your individual customizations.
Integration in Contao

Fully integrated in Contao

Due to the direct integration into Contao, MERCONIS is no "foreign body" but a harmonious component that integrates itself perfectly and smoothly into Contao thus leading to a standardized operation. You don’t need two systems because everything has been united under the same roof!

Products & variants


Variant management

You would like to offer products in different variants and the prices of your variants depend on various parameters? No problem if you use MERCONIS! The "VariantCreator" which is included in the MERCONIS PRODUCT MANAGER (MPM) enables you to easily generate product variants by the click of a button. Or simply use our MERCONIS product configurators!

Configurators for products

All of your products can be equipped with almost any configurator which your customers can then use in a product-related way. Configurators enable you to make products configurable. The selection and entries of your shop visitors will have a direct impact on the products, e.g. by changing their price or appearance.
Flex Content

Any further contents (Flex Contents)

You can easily enrich your products with any additional product information/field. With MERCONIS you are not confined to just text and one or two pictures in your product descriptions. No, quite the reverse! If you like, you can enrich your product description by a video or a PDF document and so on - just as you like!

Product presentation with appealing gallery

Your product images (of course in unlimited number) are automatically displayed in a slider gallery with zoom function. By the way, images can also be assigned directly to a product fully automatically if desired. For this, the image file names only have to contain the article number! A function that saves a lot of time in practice.

Product management with the MERCONIS PRODUCT MANAGER (MPM)!

Thanks to the innovative and very comfortable MERCONIS PRODUCT MANAGER, even large numbers of products can be edited the clear and easy way. You will enjoy this! Of course, product management can also be carried out the conventional way online or via import from your inventory management system.

Management of goods in stock & delivery times


Management of goods in stock

No matter if you already run a merchandise management system in your company or not, the management of goods in stock helps you to keep track of things. Perfect management of goods in stock is also a basic condition for reliable delivery times. MERCONIS informs you automatically when a minimum stock is reached.

Flexible delivery times

If required, MERCONIS can not only display that a product is “in stock” but automatically display information like, for example, "Delivery by Wednesday at the very latest" or show symbols like traffic lights (green/yellow/red), color bars etc. This makes it easy for you to comply with legal regulations concerning the indication of delivery times.

Convenience for your customers


Product filters

Even more convenience for your customers with regard to product search thanks to the powerful product filters of MERCONIS that can be set up very easily!


Merconis includes a flexible front-end product search. While store visitors are still entering search terms, they receive live search results. It is therefore not necessary to connect an external search server solution to use this functionality in the webshop.


Also offer your visitors the popular "watch list". A function that your customers will be happy to use.
