Learn about NetSuite SuiteCommerce Advanced

by Caleb Schmitz in , July 14th, 2021

If you are new to the NetSuite space, you may not have heard much about SuiteCommerce Advanced and how it can transform your business into an ecommerce machine. NetSuite ecommerce is a common search topic because your ERP drives your ecommerce experience. As you grow your business data infrastructure, you will eventually decide to open up new channels of business. This might include integrating your product data to Amazon, eBay, Walmart, Sears, Etsy, or other online marketplaces. At some point, you will recognize that each of these platforms are eating into your margins and your loyal customers are willing to take the extra minute to shop directly on your own website. Since you don't have to pay for each product to be sold on another platform, you can increase your margins. In addition, you can create a dedicated customer portal to use for both B2B and B2C ecommerce users. Some companies have found that SuiteCommerce Advanced is ideal for a portal and use it solely for that too.

Customer Portal for NetSuite Ecommerce

Some companies in the Wholesale and Distribution space don't even use the shopping aspect of a SuiteCommerce website and decide to use SuiteCommerce entirely for its high-performance customer portal. The customer portal can be customized for nearly any possible scenario. SuiteMarkets created a Custom Records extension that allows for NetSuite custom records to display in "My Account." This feature is extremely useful for many companies that are looking to display customer-specific information that is unique to their business or vertical. Some companies want to give their customers the ability to modify an existing order that hasn't been shipping directly from their account. This is ideal for wholesale companies shipping by the truck load to different locations. You might want to reach out to a NetSuite consultant to help you determine if this options works for your company.
