After you complete the steps outlined in the Getting Started section, you can now view your site on your development domain. At this point, this is only a basic site. You still need to complete more tasks before you are ready to go live, but you now have a working development site to test and view your changes.

Navigate to the development domain defined in your Web Site Setup record. If the site does not display, check that your domain set up correctly. See Domains.

The SuiteCommerce Storefront topics offer many options for your site, from search preferences to marketing features and site analytics. We recommend browsing through the various set up options to see what is best for your site. However, consider the following principle topics as the most important of your next steps:

  • Web Store Items – details how to set up products, including item set up for SuiteCommerce, product images, product lists, etc.

  • Web Store Transactions – details how to set up payments, shipping, and checkout.

  • Themes & Extensions – details how to install and activate themes to change the look and feel of your site or extensions to add functionality.

  • Item Record Settings – details how to make items that are set up in NetSuite available to site visitors for viewing and purchasing on your web store.

Site Management Tools

If Site Management Tools are provisioned for your site, you can use these tools to perform several important website management related tasks, including:

  • Manage content (HTML, text, images, and merchandising zones)

  • Add landing pages and enhance existing pages

  • Customize Sass and enable skins for themes

  • Manage commerce categories and subcategories

  • Assign items to categories

The Site Management Tools user interface lets you manage and preview content in real-time using an unpublished version of your site. You drag and drop new content, edit or remove existing content, and rearrange content by dragging it from one location to another. See the help topic Site Management Tools Overview to learn more about SMT, including the types of content you can manage, how to set it up, and how to use it.
