SuiteCommerce Advanced: A dynamic NetSuite ecommerce solution
SuiteCommerce Advanced is NetSuite’s most robust omnichannel ecommerce solution which provides access to the source code for complete control and fully responsive, pixel-perfect design. Its out-of-the-box features are unmatched as it empowers companies with integrated email, social, web, in-store campaigns, searchandising, and much more. It also natively integrates with NetSuite ERP, CRM, and its complete business management suite and modules.
With manual upgrades, built-in CDN, single-page architecture for fast performance, and seamless integration capabilities, SuiteCommerce Advanced is the perfect ecommerce solution to help take your company to the next level.
- Access to the source code for pixel-perfect design and unlimited layout control
- Fully responsive themes optimized for all devices
- Helps customers quickly find what they are looking for — Elasticsearch, searchandising, fuzzy matching, etc.
- Faster loading and better performance with Single-page architecture, CDN Edge Caching and auto file minification
- Advanced marketing features — upsell, cross-sell, faceted navigation, dynamic merchandising, etc.
- Manual upgrades with security patches already applied
SuiteCommerce is the newest NetSuite ecommerce solution as it was introduced in 2018 during SuiteWorld. It boasts many of the same features as SuiteCommerce Advanced, but it’s more restrictive and paired down.
SuiteCommerce possesses easy usability with drag-and-drop features in the back end, responsive design, SEO capabilities, and more. Companies receive access to the Commerce Extension Framework for pre-built extensions and themes for a wide variety of customization and design options.
The primary differences are the lack of access to the source code, and the version updates being automatic instead of manual. This is still a solid entry-level ecommerce solution.
- Responsive design enabled for the entire web store
- Slightly less expensive compared to SuiteCommerce Advanced
- HTTPS support across the entire site
- One domain across shopping and check out
- Similar search features to SuiteCommerce Advanced — Elasticsearch, fuzzy matching, type-ahead recommendations, etc.

Site Builder is NetSuite’s most limited ecommerce solution that is actually no longer available to be purchased by new customers and will be phased out over the coming months. It includes everything needed to start selling online, including prebuilt website templates, gateway functionality, shopping cart, and a few other features.
Site Builder was a solid entry-level NetSuite ecommerce solution, and it can easily be upgraded to SuiteCommerce Advanced or SuiteCommerce.
