SuiteCommerce InStore – Setting up a custom discount

SuiteCommerce InStore (SCIS) allows for a true omnichannel experience with the NetSuite platform, especially when bundled with SuiteCommerce Advanced (SCA), an Ecommerce platform. Getting the hang of setting up common customer service and in-store operations scenarios may stump even an experienced NetSuite administrator, because at times it requires a modified approach to making the best of the base functionality of the platform.

This installment of the Tips & Tricks will show you how to configure an easy-to-apply custom discount option in SCIS.
