    Catalog Details

    Name

    Identifies the shared catalog throughout the Admin, and in the customer account(s) where it is available. Changing the name of a shared catalog, also changes the name of the corresponding customer group.

    The catalog name should be descriptive and no more than 32 characters in length. You cannot have two shared catalogs with the same name. Maximum characters: 32

    Type

    Changing the catalog type from “Custom” to “Public” converts the existing public catalog to a custom catalog. Any companies associated with the original public catalog are reassigned to the replacement. A public catalog cannot be converted to a custom catalog.

    Custom

    Identifies a catalog with custom pricing that is available only to specific companies.

    Public

    Identifies the shared catalog that is available to all guest visitors and to logged-in customers who are not associated with a company. A “default” pubic shared catalog is created when Magento B2B is installed, but must be configured by the administrator. Only one public shared catalog can exist at a time.

    Customer Tax Class

    Determines the tax class that is used for purchases made from the catalog. The options include all available tax classes.
