Create a Kit Item - On-The-Fly

Kit items are a special items in NetSuite that can contain many member items and have their own special price. They can contain any type of item as members. Think of the times where you wanted to use kit items but just couldn't guess what items in a kit would sell, or there are just too many choices. We can help by allowing them to build a kit on-the-fly and add it to their cart for purchase.

For instance, a first aid kit manufacturer wanted their customers to create, purchase and reorder parts of a custom kit that they created from a list of hundreds of items, with various selection criteria. An industrial manufacturer wanted to have their customers select options from a list of items and service items based on a questionnaire selection criteria. Matrix options were out of the question as there could be over a trillion possibilities. Our scripts and techniques for creating kit items on-the-fly were useful in both cases and actually where the only possible way to deliver those items.

Have a need you just can't make work with the normal NetSuite item options. Have us allow your users and sales staff to easily create custom kit items. There will be nothing like it in your industry. Compete with Amazon by creating custom kits! Read below to find out more information and to see examples. Then give us a call to discuss your needs. From USA call: 302.304.8404.

Installation Process

Every installation is different so we need to start with a conversation about your needs. The idea is to determine how best to allow your customers to select items that they can include into their unique kit.

We also will have to decide what displays if the user clicks on the link back to the item from within the shopping cart. We can send them to a special items detail page, back to the original starting point with their elements pre-filled, or our unique & very custom page that displays all the elements of the kit for reordering the whole or parts.

Once that is all worked out, it's just a matter of coding.

On Your Website

Kit creating can happen on an item detail page, or though a series of item list pages. Pricing can be calculated based on the logged-in user's price level, and/or a kit discount applied. The user can create a display name for the kit and even custom item fields can be filled in. Once the thumbnail image, kit price, & members are selected, our special code creates the kit item.

Cart and Checkout Process

Each kit item created only needs to have a unique "itemid", other elements like the display name can be used again. We usually base the itemid off of the customer ID (if login is required) or on a standard kititem (if one is being reconfigured). Scripts that run before the kit item is created determine a unique itemid for the kit being created.

Once we create the kit item we can add it right to the user's cart where they can then immediately checkout. On the sales order, the item appears as a single item, just like a manually created kit. The price is set when the kit is created.

A workflow can be set up to tell your sales staff of this special item and saved searches can be run to find and erase kits no longer needed.

See It In Action

MFASCO Make a Kit -

Uses a very customized set of questions, rules, filtered item lists, and more rules to come up with a custom first aid kit. Nothing else like it in the first aid kit industry! Everyone needs a first aid kit. Create your own at:

MFASCO kit reordering -

So their users can keep coming back to refill their unique kit, we came up with a way to display all the kit elements to be added to the cart. Even for guest users. Logged in users can see all their kits in a list. See it in action at:

BF Books Custom Literature Pack -

Often users want to purchase a full Literature Pack but already own one of the books from the pack. This new page allows them to remove items from the standard pack (the number based on a custom item field), and see a new discount applied. On the backend, a custom item option lists what was removed so the order processing team only needs to remove from a standard pack, not create an entirely new one. See it in action at:

Industrial Pumps -

Currently under development. Industrial pump systems can have so many different configurations that there could be trillions of kits. Who knew. Our customized kit item creation tool will allow their customers, AND their sales team, to create just the configuration they need quickly. Right from an item detail page. Nothing like it in their industry.

NetSuite Advanced Cart, Checkout and Customer Center

NetSuite SiteBuilder has a basic cart and checkout turned on by default. There are limited customization possibilities and it is not responsive, so it is a good idea to upgrade. Fortunately, NetSuite offers a free download of the same cart /checkout / customer center that SCA uses, though modified for use with SiteBuilder. If you want your handheld users to more easily checkout and view your customer center, have us install & customize the latest SCA for SiteBuilder. Give us a call.

NetSuite has spent years developing and improving upon their latest cart / checkout / customer center. For SiteBuilder, they offer it as a free bundle. The current version is excellent with all sizes of screens –- from desktops to mobile handhelds -- and is designed to allow for easier updating in the future.

It is controlled via hundreds of modules of text, JavaScript files, and server pages. All text is customizable via an external file. Item cells are modifiable and can be added to with standard or custom item record fields. The checkout can be organized into multi-page or single-page checkout. It is near feature parity with SCA, is responsive, has more customization options; but it needs a few hours to install, add to your site, & customize to your exact needs. Give us a call.

We've spent years adding features to NetSuite's cart and checkout, and this latest setup allows us to add even more. For instance, if you have custom images for your matrix child items for the color of that item, we can show that color on the cart AND the checkout. No one else offers this feature! Give us a call.

*Responsive Cells: We create responsive item list cells completely differently than anyone else. The cells expand horizontally until an additional cell can be added. It is graceful and barely noticeable. Our cells also expand vertically, meaning you can have different amounts of information in each cell, yet ALL the cells in any given row are all the same height. Finally, our method encourages two cells per row on handhelds in portrait mode, instead of everyone else's single cell per row. Makes shopping easier. And best of all they still use normal NetSuite SiteBuilder templates and layouts. Check them out; our responsive item list cells are fantastic!

**Unique Filtering/Facets Our filters work on the item list or category list level. Items displayed can be filtered by any custom item field, or by price range. Unlike every other filtering system you've seen, our system updates content immediately, without additional server requests. Every category is maintained the standard NetSuite method you currently use: it's just now you have filters/facets. Totally responsive – working great on handhelds! All data stays internal to NetSuite so your business data is secure and under your control - always - with NO EXTRA MONTHLY FEES. (All the data is pre-rendered via daily scripts.) In handheld mode the filters display like a typical 'hamburger' navigation.

***Item Suggestion / Typeahead Search Immediately displayed dropdown of item suggestions or type-ahead search phrases on your normal NetSuite global search. NO EXTRA MONTHLY FEES.


We can make NetSuite SiteBuilder websites be fully responsive, yet be internal to NetSuite using the normal layouts and templates.



We can customize your NetSuite SiteBuilder templates to add ANYTHING you can need. Unique, effective and easy to maintain.
