Creating a Web Storefront

Last modified December 13, 2016

There are two ways to create a Web Storefront:

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

To create a new Web Storefront from scratch

  1. Select the Storefronts menu at the top of the dashboard. The Web Storefronts tab will be selected by default.
  2. Click the CREATE WEB STOREFRONT button on the right-hand side of the page.

  3. The Create Web Storefront popup window will appear. In the Company Sub-Directory Storefront ID field, enter an ID for your new Web Storefront (with no spaces). 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.

To copy an existing Web Storefront

  1. Select the Storefronts menu at the top of the dashboard. The Web Storefronts tab will be selected by default.
  2. Click the MORE button below the Storefront you want to copy, and then select Copy.

  3. The Copy popup window will appear. In the To New Storefront URL field, enter an ID for your new Web Storefront (with no spaces). 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.

    Warning

    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.
