Creating a Popup Storefront

Last modified December 13, 2016

There are two ways to create a Popup Storefront:

  • If you want to start from scratch, you can create a new Popup Storefront.
  • If you already have an existing Popup Storefront that you want to use as a starting point, you can copy an existing Popup Storefront. The settings and products assigned to the existing Popup Storefront will be duplicated in the new one, potentially saving you the time of configuring those things a second time.

To create a new Popup Storefront from scratch

  1. Select the Storefronts menu at the top of the dashboard, and then select the Popup Storefronts tab.
  2. Click the CREATE POPUP STOREFRONT button on the right-hand side of the page.

    The Storefronts menu with the Popup Storefronts tab selected
     
  3. The Create Popup Storefront popup window will appear. In the Company Sub-Directory Storefront ID field, enter an ID for your new Popup Storefront. This will become part of the Storefront's URL. For example, if you wanted to create a special Storefront for a holiday promotion, you might enter holiday.

  4. Click the CREATE button at the lower right-hand corner of the popup window. Your new Popup Storefront will appear in the list of Storefronts.

    Caution: Do not click the drop-down selector in the To Existing Storefront field and select an existing Storefront unless you want to completely replace an existing Storefront.
