Please note that supporting a group is different from joining
a group. Supporters must also enroll if they wish to participate.

 Decentralized e-commerce and storefront apps will more easily share and
syndicate their products rather than relying on single and proprietary
APIs from hosts to operate a storefront. By structuring portable
commerce data stores, protocols, and semantics, this group seeks to
enable marketplaces to be built more eaily and made more easily

 This group's efforts will complement existing activities such as Web
Payments, Linked Data, and DID, to deliver a search, browse, configure,
checkout, and payment workflow for physical and digital products with
mostly existing web technologies. 

 At a higher-level, it would be potentially beneficial to include
support for an aggregate query language, (such as SPARQL) to enable
applications to query a known network of compatible applications for
product information to better support web resource-to-web resource
indexing and listing of products, increasing visibility without the need
for central search engines. This would potentially utilize HTTP methods
to register product catalogs in other web apps or request product
catalogs from other web apps, enabling products to be purchased outside
of the scope of the original commerce site, creating an aggregate
marketing power across the web rather than depending on singular,
monolithic e-commerce platforms. 

Thank you,
