Commerce Web Stores

 

 

Use NetSuite to setup and modify URL Components for facets. You can use the URL Definition page to set up URL Components for facets. The interface in NetSuite lets you try different URL Components on your site, while maintaining a list of aliases that were used in the past. The supported URL configuration looks similar to www.mywebstore.com/kitchen/plastic-spatulas.

Note

When you use the URL Component Alias feature in Commerce web stores, some configuration is required to fully integrate facet URL aliases. Modify the configuration to use the same facet values you set on the URL Components for Facets in NetSuite. For detailed information on customizing these values, see Select and Configure Facet Fields.
