    Catalog Rules

    If your store requires multiple catalogs, add catalog rules to control when a catalog is displayed. A catalog rule contains a catalog plus the criteria under which to display the catalog.

    You cannot create catalog rules for organization catalogs.

    You can use catalog rules to schedule a catalog to appear during a particular period, such as on a specific date or during summer. The catalog might offer different pricing during this period. The pricing depends on the associated pricebook.

    The following scenarios provides a few examples for using catalog rules:

    • Multiple geographical regions. Display different catalogs in different regions with suitable pricing or combine product hierarchies from two different regions to display in a third region.
    • Multiple channels. Display different catalogs based on how a shopper accesses your store, such as through a mobile app or a web storefront.
    • Direct to business versus direct to customers. Offer different products and prices for business customers versus retail customers.
    • Preferred accounts. Offer special pricing to a group of users while displaying a standard price catalog to other users.
    • Preferred customers. Offer special pricing to preferred customers while displaying a standard price catalog to all other shoppers.
    • Reward programs. Enable reward programs where catalog prices drop after a certain spending level is reached.
    • Product sales. Offer sale items for a limited time.
    • Standard pricing. Display a default catalog to the shoppers who do not meet the criteria of any of the other catalog rules.

    You can define a catalog rule with the any of following criteria:

    • Accounts. List the accounts that should see a catalog. When a user has logged in with the acccount, they see the configured catalog.
    • Customers. List the customers that should see a catalog. When the customer is logged in, they see the configured catalog.
    • Channel. Specify a shopper experience, such as web storefront or mobile app. Set up the channel to retrieve the catalog from the catalog rule that matches that channel.
    • Other tags. Create your own user-defined tags. For example, you might want to tag by regions or you might want to distinguish between business and consumer customers.

    If a catalog rule has no criteria defined, it is the default catalog rule.
