Default Customer The SYSPRO Customer used for all B2C Accounts. Pricing for B2C Accounts is based on this user's settings in SYSPRO. Pricing yielded by the Default Customer is also used as the Default Price (often referred to as "List Price") for Customers with different pricing. Visibility of Items is based on the View List for the Customer Class linked to the Default Customer.
Registration

The section that determines how users are able to register for an Account.

The Registration type provides three options for registration: "Allow B2B and B2C Registration," "Allow Only B2B Registration," or "Allow Only B2C Registration."

When allowing B2B registrations, visitors are able to link their Account with a Customer already On-File. The other options in this section determine which data must be entered by the visitor during B2B registration in order to complete this linking action. These B2B verification fields use SYSPRO Customer data and consist of: 

  • Customer Number
  • Customer's On-File Phone
  • Customer's Contact On-File
  • Customer's Userfield1
  • Customer's Salespersion3
  • Customer's BuyingGroup5

All fields except for the Customer Number are optional.

Closing a browser automatically terminates a session even if it occurs before the Session Timeout.
