Bauer Media

Adobe Commerce Cloud Platform


Through five generations of family-owned historical success, Bauer Media has now become one of the biggest privately-owned media organisations in the world. Bauer Media UK is now the No. 1 UK Publisher, as well as the No. 1 Digital Commercial Audio broadcaster. Their multi-platform network of brands reaches 25 million individuals, providing world-class content to each and every consumer across a multitude of channels.

Bauer’s UK magazine division, Bauer Publishing UK, is the UK’s biggest-selling magazine publisher. Their original publications from the beginning still hold a firm spot in their diverse portfolio, with recent publications such as Closer, Grazia, Empire, Heat, Modern Mojo, Gardens and more providing a wealth of choice for their passionate audiences.

Bauer Publishing UK’s magazines are subscribed to directly through their 2003-launched website – The site boasts over 80 of Bauer Media UK’s magazines, and offers both subscriptions and single-issue sales in both print and digital formats. The site isn’t just limited to their vast UK customer base either – Greatmagazines is optimised for international visitors too, providing pricing for their publications in five different currencies. They’re also one of the first UK subscription services to provide recurring PayPal payment options for subscriptions in order to provide consumers with complete peace of mind.

Bauer needed an Adobe Commerce (Magento) partner for ongoing support and application development for Bauer’s Adobe Commerce Cloud platform. The partner needed to be skilled in ecommerce subscription generally and in Adobe Cloud Commerce specifically with a skilled team able to provide a range of development skills, support, integration, design and user experience (UX) expertise.
