Marketing System Web Parts
You use the Marketing System Web Parts to display advertisements on the site pages, enable your shoppers to add reviews and ratings for products, and provide store location information to the shopper.
We do not recommend using NTLM authentication in the extended zone your shoppers will use because some of the Default site functionality that requires a shopper log in will not function correctly when logging in under NTLM. This includes functions such as registration, profile management, login and logout, to name a few. This occurs because of a synchronization limitation of profile information between the Windows account, Commerce Server 2009, and SharePoint. However, primary browsing, shopping, and checkout functions are not affected.
