This information refers to SuiteCommerce or the 2019.2 release of SuiteCommerce Advanced or later. Do not enable Personalized Catalog Views if your site is using a SuiteCommerce Advanced release prior to 19.2.
The Personalized Catalog Views (PCV) feature enables you to provide different customers with access to different items. You can divide your customers into groups and provide each group with access to a tailored selection of catalog items. This is useful in many scenarios, particularly for B2B websites. For example:
Businesses can grant VIP customers exclusive access to specific catalog items
Retailers that are licensed to sell certain products in limited geographies can prevent customers in other geographic locations from seeing those items
Manufacturers that require customers to be certified to purchase certain items can ensure only certified customers have access to those items
PCV uses NetSuite records, such as Customer Groups, Commerce Categories, and Item Collections as well as the Customer Segment Manager tool to help you personalize your catalogs for your customers.
See the following topics for more information about PCV:
