Why rebuild something that has already been created?

 

There are two options, SuiteCommerce Standard (SCS) and SuiteCommerce Advanced (SCA). Here is a useful article that explains the difference. In summary, the main difference is access to source code.

The SuiteCommerce implementation can be done for as low as $15,000 but it is more likely to be around $30,000 with some larger implementations reaching $60,000+. Large implementations tend to have additional customization's your business may decide as highly important prior to Go-Live. SuiteCommerce Advanced (SCA) implementations tend to be on the higher end because SCA customers tend to like more customization.

FAQ

Magento vs SuiteCommerce

Magento is one of the most popular ecommerce solutions by holding a significant portion of the market share. However, SuiteCommerce has been on the rise since Magento 2.0. User experience is one of the most distinct areas that the two divide. Magento tends to be less consistent when integrating with different solutions. SuiteCommerce uses a single page application that loads all the javascript right away so navigating between areas of the store is faster for the user.

 

Since SuiteCommerce was built on an ERP system, accounting practices and data processing were always part of the solution. Magento will require more third-party extensions and development support to match SuiteCommerce with regards to accounting. When comparing scalability, both solutions provide a similar benefit and are able to grow well with your business. It's good to know that they both have solutions capable of scalability. Since the latest updates to SuiteCommerce configuration, extension manager, and website setup, the implementation time of SuiteCommerce has been drastically reduced and can be accomplished within a few weeks for a basic implementation. Magento does have competive subscription pricing, but the IT development costs may exceed that of SuiteCommerce.

Overall, if you are using NetSuite as an ERP platform, then SuiteCommerce is a no brainer...

Shopify vs SuiteCommerce

Shopify has been a growing ecommerce platform over the last few years and has targeted smaller ecommerce businesses. They are a stand alone ecommerce platform that have a strong user base with a clean intuitive structure. Since Shopify doesn't have direct access to NetSuite in the same way that SuiteCommerce does, it is not as easy to scale. Managing the sales data in larger volumes is critical when scaling your company. Your customers may need special data that you need to display after new business processes or product lines are implemented. Connectors are designed for standard business data transfer, but when your business grows, it needs a more flexible approach that SuiteCommerce provides more quickly. You could use a custom integration that would allow for more flexibility.

If you are a new startup with revenue under $1 million then Shopify is the clear choice simply due to pricing. You probably don't have NetSuite yet either which would make SuiteCommerce unavailable. If you are a company that is planning to have NetSuite, then SuiteCommerce makes a lot of sense to implement. Typically, companies start to actively look at NetSuite and SuiteCommerce when they reach approximately $8-10 million in annual revenue.

 

Shopify has other options for larger businesses like Shopify Plus, but SuiteCommerce Advanced beats its features going head to head with a B2B website. Both products are a solid choice for B2C ecommerce solutions and have their unique pros and cons. 

Shopify tends to have a larger volume of developers because there are more active websites using its system at the moment. It makes sense that they have a larger market share since only NetSuite users have access to SuiteCommerce. When you have a larger pool of developers available, you can probably find developers for a little less per hour. However, you will still need someone knowledgeable in NetSuite to perform integrations, scripts to manage data, and support Shopify data. Even though there are a lot of Shopify developers, there are a select few (even less than SuiteCommerce) that also have the necessary expertise in NetSuite.

When trying to decide which option is best for you, it is more important to build out your requirements for the ecommerce website and try to anticipate your growth needs. This will help make the comparison easier. Then you can dive into the specific functionality as it relates to your business. If you have already done this, then feel free to contact our team for a demo of the native SuiteCommerce features. 

SuiteCommerce Standard vs SuiteCommerce Advanced (SCA)

There is one main distinction between SuiteCommerce Advanced and SuiteCommerce standard...access to the source code. SuiteCommerce Standard still has the ability to write extensions that can create nearly all of the customizations that you may require. For companies that spend more resources on development teams (>$200,000), it is likely they will want to get SuiteCommerce Advanced (SCA). There are also some SuiteApps that are exclusive to SuiteCommerce Advanced because they work by manipulating the source code. 

SuiteCommerce standard is approximately 30%-50% less expensive than SuiteCommerce Advanced making it a more affordable option if this is your first ecommerce website or if you are a smaller business. Theme changes and functionality modifications can still be developed in SuiteCommerce Standard.

 

Switching from SuiteCommerce Standard to SuiteCommerce Advanced is not super difficult to do since it can use the same source code, extensions, theme, and other NetSuite ERP customizations. You may run into more issues switching from SuiteCommerce Advanced to SuiteCommerce Standard if a customization was performed that required a change to the source code. There is still work involved because it is likely migrating from a different SuiteCommerce version.

SCA is not a managed bundle which means that you need to migrate to the latest versions yourself. But this can be a good thing if you are a company that makes a lot of customization. You can be sure that an update by NetSuite doesn't break any of your customizations. SuiteCommerce Standard is a managed bundle that updates automatically, but there are risks to customization's breaking when there are automatic updates. You will typically have access to new SuiteCommerce updates in sandbox prior to the release date that will allow you to be proactive in ensuring any customization is not impacted.
