Make a Lightning Store


Nimble AMS introduces the ability to create a state-of-the-art e-commerce store using Lightning Web Components for an improved user experience and more flexibility on how associations can sell their products.

Built using new Lightning Web Component (LWC) technology Nimble AMS customers are now able to use the power of Community Builder to easily design an experience for members to find, configure and purchase products. 

The user experience has been improved to take more advantage of desktop screen space to show more products, while still preserving the mobile and tablet experiences.

And new capabilities allow selling other product types through the store interface with custom DataSources. Contact your Customer Success representative for more information.
