You could say that the more customized and complex ones are paid. Here you can check out some of the most popular free apps.
What is SuiteCommerce?
Now we dive into the eCommerce world. SuiteCommerce is basically NetSuite’s native eCommerce platform. This means it’s a platform that you won’t have to integrate into NetSuite yourself since it’s already integrated. This is quite beneficial to business owners since it means less time and money will be spent in the process of creating an eCommerce business.
However, keep in mind that you can use other eCommerce platforms like Shopify or BigCommerce while still using NetSuite ERP. There are plenty of integrations in the market that can connect NetSuite to other platforms and they work just fine!

We’ve also taken the time to compare Suitecommerce and SCA to other popular eCommerce platforms like Shopify or BigCommerce. Check those out too to make sure you’re making the right choice.
