NOTICE: The Vault – eCommerce is migrating to a new streamlined data model that will help you save time by focusing on Canadian-specific attributes and featuring fewer attributes not relevant to the Canadian market.
For additional information, please read The Vault – eCommerce Data Model Migration FAQ.

The Vault - eCommerce

The Vault – eCommerce is a secure storage tool for all of your eCommerce images and data.

A vital element of the ECCnet eCommerce Content solution, data providers (such as manufacturers, brand owners and distributors) can use The Vault – eCommerce to access all of their eCommerce images and data in one central location.

Data providers can also add top-up information such as extra marketing claims or romance copy to their products in The Vault – eCommerce.

The Vault – eCommerce ensures data excellence by giving data providers the ability to certify their eCommerce data. This ensures data recipients (such as retailers) have access to the most up-to-date and accurate product information.
