Customize a landing page

  • Updated

A custom landing page is a feature that allows Configured Commerce Administrators to assign a specific URL to a customer. This URL displays a personalized welcome message, product suggestions, or relevant news to the user after they log in to the commerce site. Custom Landing Pages provide customers and their users with a tailored site experience, providing them with immediate access to products that may interest them, or simply making them feel welcome when they visit the site.

When a customer's users access the commerce site and sign in, they automatically are redirected to the specified Custom Landing Page. If no Custom Landing Page is specified, the user is redirected to the authenticated Home Page.

While Personas and Custom Landing Pages serve similar functions, Custom Landing Pages are more reliable. As Personas are designated to users upon each login, and may change based on multiple factors, the Custom Landing Pages function is recommended for customers that require special webpages.
