Merchandising Rules are defined in your NetSuite account. SuiteCommerce SMT enables you to place merchandising zone content on a page by dragging it from the side panel and dropping it in a pre-defined area on the page. The scope of the area where you place the merchandising zone determines when it is displayed.

  • If the scope of the area is all pages, then the merchandising zone displays on any page that contains that area.

  • If the scope of the area is page type, then the merchandising zone displays on any page of that type.

  • If the scope of the area is this page, then the merchandising zone displays only on the page to which you add it.

For more information on creating merchandising rules, see Product Merchandising.

Merchandising Zone Template File

The formatting of the merchandising zone content and the information that is displayed is defined by the merchandising zone template file. For more information on the merchandising zone template file, see Merchandising Zone Template.
