Share your thoughts and get the chance to win a smartwatch
Digital business is moving fast and the market is constantly changing. For this reason, we would like to get to know the market better to operate most sufficiently. To do this, we would like to get some insights into how Ucommerce is used and how you see us. We have put together a short survey and your opinion will be greatly appreciated.
To thank you for spending a couple of minutes filling out the survey, we will draw a random winner among the respondents who will get a smartwatch - the latest generation, of course.

On the 3rd of June, we released Ucommerce 9.1. The top changes and features of this new version include:
- Compatibility with Sitefinity 11 and 12
- Compatibility with Sitecore 9.0, 9.1, and 9.2
- Compatibility with Umbraco Cloud
- Ability to edit product and variant prices
- Ability to place products in categories
- Various improvements of both BOLT and KONDO
- And we fixed a bug that prevented going live with V9. With 9.1., you are good to go.
Some of our partners have already started to build commerce solutions on V9, and, if you haven’t already, you can also download the new version by clicking below.
Even though we are very excited about the improvements made to the platform, we do not just rest on our laurels, but we are continuously striving to improve the core platform. Actually, the dev team entered a new sprint, and in the next release, Ucommerce V9.2, you can, among other things, look forward to Ucommerce compatibility with Sitefinity 13 and Sitecore 9.3.
If you want to dive into what has happened since we released V9, the biggest release since V1, and what is yet to come, take a look at the V9: Release Update blog post.
A Ucommerce and Sitecore solution for Southampton F.C.
The Premier League club, Southampton F.C., needed an extensive revamp of its online retail store to allow fans worldwide to browse and purchase merchandise and, specifically, since mobile traffic represents the majority of the traffic to the store, it needed to be optimized for mobile conversion.
With a solution built on Ucommerce 7.18 and Sitecore and integrated with Southampton’s back-office, the retail store has been designed to maximize fan spend, streamline the buyer journey, and create best in class customer experience. More specifically, the solution entails optimization for mobile conversion, removal of any potential barriers and drop-off points, implementation of easily configurable marketing features, and a brand new UI that enhances product presentation.
If you would like to dive further into the challenges they faced and the solution provided, then take a look at the blog post we dedicated to the matter. Delete Agency did an impeccable job!
