Fully automatic installation/integration in Contao

Ready To Go

Fully automatic installation

Thanks to the MERCONIS installer, MERCONIS is immediately ready for use and pre-configured – even within an already existing website! Spare yourself the trouble of a lengthy manual installation and configuration of modules, pages etc. And what’s more, MERCONIS immediately provides you with a complete website including  a mobile ready template, demo products etc.
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. MERCONIS uses the Contao framework.

Ready-made themes


Including responsive templates – shop “out of the box”

Select a MERCONIS theme during the automatic installation of MERCONIS. This provides you with a fully “responsive” (mobile ready) online shop „out of the box“ by the click of a button – pre-configured and prepared with demo data for you! Of course, the themes can always be modified or you can use your own theme or themes of a third-party provider.

Convenience for shop visitors


Product filters

MERCONIS offers you a powerful and flexible product filter which you can use easily but also switch off, if required. You can configure the product filter the flexible and convenient way in the backend and easily define all available attributes. The filter will then take care of the rest and always offer suitable filter possibilities fully-automatically.


MERCONIS immediately provides you with a flexible product search. While shop customers still type in search words, they already get the results - live! Therefore, an external search server is not required to offer this functionality in the shop. With MERCONIS the product search is immediately active after the fully-automatic installation.

MERCONIS Quickview

With MERCONIS Quickview shop visitors can view product details or order products without having to leave the product overview or the search results list. Additionally, Quickview offers the possibility to display product details in an overlay.


A MERCONIS shop automatically provides shop visitors with a „Memory list“.

My orders

Additionally, (registered/logged-on) shop visitors can at any time view all purchases made in the past along with the corresponding order status.

Fully customizable & flexible

Flex Content

Any further contents (Flex Contents)

You can easily enrich products with any additional product information/field. Via Flex Contents you can even add an entire HTML code for a product which will then be displayed the product-specific way in the template. This is the strongest product-related flexibility you can imagine!
Bedingte Ausgabe

Conditional output of items/content elements

MERCONIS extends Contao at some points. You can, for example, have an item/content element displayed depending on whether the shopping cart is filled or empty or whether the shop visitor is in a product overview or in a product detail view.

Various display of products and cross-sellers

MERCONIS allows you to flexibly define how products and cross-sellers are displayed and it is possible to make completely different settings, for example, for categories or individual products. This enables you to easily realize specific forms of display that are, for example,  based on the respective category.


Of course, MERCONIS is template-based. If required, you can adapt all templates to your requirements. This allows you to realize even extreme forms of customization.

Customizable check-out

The check-out process can be adapted to your requirements.


MERCONIS provides you with a large number of hooks that allow you to have individual functions carried out at certain points in the system. This is a good way to realize even the most special solutions!

Wild cards/insert tags

MERCONIS offers you a multitude of wild cards/insert tags which you can use for additional flexibility.




With MERCONIS you can easily define a large number of individual cross-sellers and configure them according to various criteria. You can, for example, have “similar products”, best-sellers or accessories etc. displayed. A large number of cross-sellers is part of MERCONIS by default and they are automatically implemented in the MERCONIS templates.



Configurators for products

All products can be equipped with almost any configurator which shop visitors can then use the product-related way. Configurators enable you to make products configurable. The selection and entries of shop visitors will have a direct impact on the products, e.g. by changing their price or appearance. The easiest example would be to create a Contao form and use it as a configurator. But even elaborate Javascript configurators work in perfect harmony with MERCONIS.

News system & automatic PDF generation (e.g. for invoices)


Flexible and comfortable news and message management system

The news system integrated in MERCONIS is highly flexible but still amazingly easy to use and to configure. You can define any news type you like and the conditions subject to which (e.g. after shipping) and how (manually, automatically) these are supposed to be sent. The common news types have been pre-defined for you.

Generating and sending PDFs (e.g. PDF invoices)

With the news and message management system integrated in MERCONIS you can not only send static files but also generate and send along any dynamic PDF file. You can, for example, send PDF invoices which MERCONIS has already prepared for you.

Add-ons included



Use IsNavtabs and display any type of content in an index-card-like style. The shop customers can switch between the tabs. Additionally use various cross-fade effects and autoplay! IsNavTabs enables you to display an enormous amount of different information in the most confined of spaces.


IsSlides makes it possible to conveniently display products (new products, "similar" products etc.) and any other content in a treadmill-like "continuous display unit" through which the shop customers can flick in both directions. Cross-sellers use IsSlides by default.


Offer your shop customers the possibility to enlarge your product images! Thanks to IsZoom this happens automatically and is easy to configure. Besides shop products you can also enlarge any other image of the website with this add-on.


With IsUnfold you can offer your shop customers the possibility to easily open (unfold) and close (fold) elements of your website. Product filter and cross-sellers use IsUnfold by default.

Backend and frontend languages



The entire backend has been translated into German and English and can be extended by further languages, if required. To this end, MERCONIS also uses the language variables that are used in Contao by default. Please note that MERCONIS comes along with ready-made demo data (=frontend) in German and English.

Integrated language changer

The language changer integrated in MERCONIS makes sure that in a multilingual operation mode in the frontend the change from one language to the other will automatically open the correct page.
