Self Service Enabledselected in Staff View. Each merchandise product shows a name, short description (including HTML content), retail price, if users are logged in as members, the member price, and a product image. For any Merchandise product, users can click to see more information.
The Merchandise products on the page are shown in groups of ten, so users see a count at the top of the page showing how many products are being shown out of the total number of products, and once users get to the bottom of the page, they can click to see the next group of ten products.
Users can search for Merchandise products in the store by entering complete words which are searched within the name, description, and short description of Merchandise products.
If users have selected a category and then search for a word, the search is performed within the entire store, and not within the category.
In order to be shown, Categories must have
Self Service Enabled selected, and are shown to users based on the
Display Order for the Category. Within a category, Merchandise products are shown based on the
Display Order with featured products in the category showing first followed by all other products in the category.
Categories and filters can both be applied at the same to help users find products. A message is displayed if no matching products are found.
By default, the Store page shows all Merchandise products and can be configured to include a filter to show just products that are featured in Community Hub.
If your org has a large number of merchandise products, we recommend adding just a few fields containing a small amount of data to the field set used on the card, as too much field data, like a long product description, can exceed Salesforce limits. Additionally, we recommend setting the "Featured" filter as the default.
You can configure Community Hub to show featured Merchandise products on the page by default, rather than the list of all Merchandise products.
Finally, you can add additional custom filters to the page to help users shop easily in your Community Hub store. You can even configure a custom filter to be shown on the page by default.
When making a custom query for a Community Hub store filter:
SELECTstatement must include
Short Description, and
Web Product Image URL. Example:
Name, nu__ShortDescription__c, nu__WebProductImageURL__c.
WHEREclause must look for merchandise products with
Self Service Enabledis set to
RecordType = Merchandise AND SelfServiceEnabled__c = True
Categories and filters can both be applied at the same time to help users find products. A message is displayed if no matching products are found.

Adding Items to the Cart When Not Logged In
If users try to add items to the cart when they are not logged in, they will be automatically taken to the Welcome page where they can either log in with an existing account or create a new account in order to proceed.
If the user has an existing account and decides to log in, they will automatically be brought back to the store page to continue shopping and will then be able to add items to their cart. Once logged in, members will see product pricing specific to their member type along with the retail price. If they are not a member, only retail pricing is shown.
If the user creates an account, they will also be brought back to the product page after account creation is complete. From here users can continue shopping and will have the ability to add merchandise products to their cart.
