Step 1 of 5
Confirm your default B2B Settings
Customize the way your B2B Store works by going to B2B eCommerce > Settings. This page is always available to change the Order Management, Pricing, Tax and Shipping settings for your B2B Store.
Stock Location Fallback
By setting up your Stock Location Fallback, you're making sure that your B2B catalog is never empty. In some cases, your B2B customers may not have a default stock location assigned to them. When such customers log in to your B2B store, they will see products from the Stock Location Fallback.
Price List Fallback
By setting up Price List Fallback, you're making sure that your B2B is never empty. When customers without a default price list log in to your B2B store, they will see products and prices from the Price List Fallback.
