NetSuite B2B Ecommerce Benefits
NetSuite B2B Ecommerce Features
Choose from a selection of prebuilt, mobile-optimized themes to provide the site design that best reflects your brand. Make it easy for shoppers to find, learn about and buy your products with a host of features, including alternative images, product comparisons, saved shopping carts and creation of lists.
Powerful site search, combined with faceted navigation, ensures shoppers locate the products they need quickly and easily. Intelligent product recommendations based on predictive algorithms enable merchants to present the most relevant upsells, cross-sells and related items for each shopper.
Provide the tools to easily purchase online, including routine, repeat and bulk ordering capabilities. Marry the supply side with the buy side through integration with vendors, distributors and manufacturing entities, all within the NetSuite platform. Online orders automatically convert to invoices with workflow management of approval, fulfillment and billing. With SuiteCommerce, you can:
- Allow buyers to request a quote, check the status and once a company representative approves, convert the quote to an online sales order.
- Easily reorder items from past purchases.
- Create curated online catalogs tailored to different segments of shoppers based on factors like geographic region, previous transaction history or account type and status.
Automate and expedite your billing process by giving buyers the ability to review and manage payments online. Give business accounts their own negotiated prices, terms and credit limits, and offer payment methods like invoice billing and ACH processing. Customers can view invoices and make full or partial payments against single or multiple invoices.
Account Management and Support
Help business buyers be more efficient by providing direct access to review account balances, deposits and credit memos. Enable self-service returns management so shoppers can initiate an online return authorization. Improve engagement and client satisfaction by enabling customers to submit queries directly to your support desk. Give customers complete access to their order histories and allow them to easily reorder items from past purchases.
Limit your wholesale catalog’s exposure to approved buyers. Qualify new wholesale account requests by setting up automated checkpoints to hold new registrations until final approval is granted by a reviewer.
Business users can leverage easy-to-use, drag-and-drop site management tools to add landing pages, enhance existing pages, manage content and commerce categories and subcategories and assign items to categories. Work on changes to your site and then schedule the changes to go live on your timeline or publish them immediately. All revisions are tracked and auditable.
Cart and Checkout
A persistent cart and streamlined checkout allow shoppers to complete their orders with ease as a guest or registered user. Offer customers credit card, promotional code and gift card payment options. The entire shopping experience is secure, with HTTPS support, integration with common payment gateways for real-time credit card processing with PCI DSS compliance and multilevel fraud protection.
Reporting and Analytics
Help drive sales and optimize website performance with ecommerce dashboards, predefined reports and key performance indicators. Monitor in real time every aspect of your website, including online traffic, lead generation, page load times, web orders, average items per order, wholesale account registrations and back-in-stock requests. Gain insights into individual shopper activity like date of last visit, acquisition source, items browsed and cart additions to utilize in sales and marketing activities.
Intelligent Item Recommendations
Leverage data on customer purchase history and buying patterns to increase average order size and order frequency. NetSuite Intelligent Item Recommendations uses AI to provide personalized product recommendations. Recommendations are configurable to prioritize aggregate buying behavior such as “people who bought X also bought Y,” recently added items, items the shopper has likely not seen before, and items similar to one another. These recommendations are presented when entering a sales order in NetSuite and also on a customer facing NetSuite ecommerce solution.
