Why Should Your NetSuite Store become a Google Trusted Store?

The most noticeable benefit to being a trusted store is the addition of a floating badge that is displayed in the bottom right corner of every page on your site. Here is an example:

When a user clicks on the badge, a medium-sized window will appear with customer service and shipping related stats, like this one: Continue reading “Guide: Get the Google Trusted Store Badge for Your NetSuite SuiteCommerce Site” »

Install Google’s Newest Analytics for Your SuiteCommerce Advanced or Site Builder Website

Why Install Universal Analytics?

  • Better user identification across multiple devices – get closer to tracking users, not just visits.
  • For the first time, you can now track off-line conversions with the measurement protocol – trackable lifetime value in your web analytics!
  • All future analytics innovations will rollout to universal analytics.
  • Custom variables become custom dimensions, and are easier to implement and more powerful.
  • Set your own campaign and session timeout values
  • It can run alongside your existing analytics – it can be very helpful to have six months or more to compare between systems, as no two systems will ever match exactly in their reporting.

Prerequisites for This Guide

Please see my note about issues with the auto linker in NetSuite.
This guide is written for NetSuite SuiteCommerce Advanced and Site Builder websites. It assumes that you use the NetSuite checkout domain (checkout.netsuite.com or similar) as well as the default checkout process. If you have a custom checkout domain or use the reference cart/checkout or SSP checkout, you will need a different solution.

Set up a New Analytics Property

The new user interface has a three level hierarchy to your Google analytics account – Account, Property, and View. Multiple views can be configured for a single property, which allows you to interpret the same data in multiple ways.

A Step by Step Guide

One of the features I like about the NetSuite SuiteCommerce web store is the related item functionality. Not only can you hand pick related items to display on product pages, but you can also allow NetSuite to automatically generate recommendations based on sales history. NetSuite includes four sample related item layouts, but they don’t handle varying sized images very well and tend to take up a lot of space, so I developed an alternative layout that solves some of those problems.

A Better Related Item Layout

Here’s what you can expect from the new layout:

A Quick Guide to Customizing NetSuite Reports

The 404 Report

One feature lacking in most hosted analytics systems like Google analytics is a 404 report – i.e. a list of URLs that a user or search engine tried to access, but the page was not available. If you have a NetSuite Site Builder site (now call SuiteCommerce Site Builder), NetSuite provides a built-in report that you can customize just for this purpose.

By Joining the SuiteCloud Developer Network

I’ve been using NetSuite for about nine years, and have long wished to have a simple test account that I could do anything I wanted in. As far as I know, here are the major ways that one can get a test or sandbox account with NetSuite:

  • Sandbox Account – Companies with a NetSuite account can pay extra to have access to a sandbox version, where they take a snapshot of your current database and copy it to a test server (on demand, usually takes a few days to a week). This can be a great way to test out incremental modifications to your existing set up, and can give you a chance to see if it conflicts with other customizations.
  • Become a NetSuite solution provider – This is a program for companies that sell and implement NetSuite for their customers. It costs $5,000 a year, and comes with unlimited testdrive accounts. It also has minimums for NetSuite sales, so it’s not for everyone.
  • Take a NetSuite training class – I have taken a few in person and online training classes from NetSuite, and as part of the class, we were given access to our own test drive account to follow along the training in. My account was deactivated after a few months, but it was useful while I had access.
    And finally, my favorite:
  • Join the SuiteCloud developer network – Spend a minute to fill out a quick form (click join at the bottom of the page), and in a day or two you will have access to your own test drive account that doesn’t expire (unless you stop using it), along with access to the SuiteCloud user group, which is similar to the main NetSuite user group, but separate.
