    I wish to use e-commerce widgets eg (orders list , checkout , products) to load and save to a MicrosoftNav database
    without (if possible) having 2 databases (eg orders in nav + orders in Sitefinity) to be kept in Sync
    I want the widgets to load and save only to Microsoft NAV
    are there any ways of doing this and what is the simplest way?

    Hello Martin,

     Technically it is possible but not an easy task to achieve. You would have to write your own custom products provider.

    You can find info about custom providers here.

    You would have to inherit from CatalogDataProviderBase and then override GetProducts to call your custom database.

    Here's a registration video.
