Site Management Tools

When this feature is enabled, the Site Management Tools administrator interface is enabled on your SuiteCommerce or SuiteCommerce Advanced site. This feature lets you manage content, add landing pages, and enhance existing pages on your SCA site.

To enable this feature, either the SuiteCommerce or SuiteCommerce Advanced feature must also be enabled. For more information about Site Management Tools, see Site Management Tools Overview.

Asynchronous afterSubmit Sales Order Processing

When this feature is enabled, afterSubmit user events are triggered asynchronously when a sales order is created during web store checkout.

When an afterSubmit user event runs in asynchronous mode, the next page is loaded during the period of time the afterSubmit user event is still processing. Web store Sales Orders process afterSubmit scripts in the background.

This is a global setting. This setting causes all afterSubmit user events and workflows triggered by web store checkout to run asynchronously.

Asynchronous afterSubmit Customer Processing

Check this box if you want afterSubmit user events to be triggered asynchronously when a sales order is created during web store checkout.

Web Site Duplicate Email Management

Check this box if you want to prevent shoppers from creating new customer accounts when they have already signed up for an account on your website.

Commerce Categories

Enable commerce categories. Commerce categories let you create a hierarchical structure of categories and subcategories for organizing your items. For more information about commerce categories, see Commerce Categories.

Commerce Search Analytics

When this feature is enabled, Commerce Search Analytics generates two standard workbooks to show the top searches in your website and top searches that returned zero items in the search results. For more information, see Search Analytics.


Host HTML Files

Upload your HTML website to your NetSuite File Cabinet. You can then publish your website as a tab as your Home page or in conjunction with the NetSuite Shopping cart and Checkout tabs.

Use NetSuite smart tags in the HTML of your website to pull information directly from your account to display in your website.

External Catalog Site (WSDK)

Use the shopping cart and checkout pages with your Web catalog or Web store. If you check this, you must also check Allow Online Ordering, Use Sales Orders, Operate a Web Site and Operate a Web Store.

Document Publishing

Publish links to your Microsoft® Word, PowerPoint, and other document files in your File Cabinet to your intranet or website. When you click this link from your site, the document opens in a separate window for viewing.

Enabling Document Publishing adds a Publishing subtab to the records of all files in your File Cabinet.

If you do not check this box, you can only publish images from your File Cabinet to your intranet or website.
