Store Settings

From your dashboard, click on the store tab and then go to settings to manage the basic properties of your store.

Store Name and Address

In the first section, you enter basic information about your store. 

Store Name and Address
 

The store name, store owner, and email address can appear on invoices and email notifications to your customers.

(The country dropdown is populated with only those countries that have already been enabled for your store. For new stores, only the United States and Canada appear here. If your country doesn't appear, you need to turn on that country by visiting the shipping settings section. You can read about how to do this in the shipping section of this handbook.)

General Settings

You can change the currency, invoice message, and inventory behavior from the general settings section.

General Settings

Currency

The you choose specifies what currency your products are denominated in. You can choose any of the following currencies for your store:

  • United States Dollar
  • Canadian Dollar
  • Euro
  • British Pound
  • Japanese Yen
  • Australian Dollar
  • New Zealand Dollar
  • Swiss Franc
  • Hong Kong Dollar
  • Singapore Dollar
  • Swedish Krona
  • Danish Krone
  • Polish Zloty
  • Norwegian Krone
  • Hungarian Forint
  • Czech Koruna
  • Israeli New Shekel
  • Mexican Peso
  • Philippine Peso
  • New Taiwan Dollar
  • Thai Baht

All products shown on your site will be displayed in that currency. Your customers can pay with whatever currencies they normally use, and PayPal or 2Checkout will automatically convert the total into your currency. (For example, if you charge 50 Euro for a product, a customer in the United States will still be able to pay in US Dollars, at an up-to-date rate.)

Note: changing your currency doesn't change the price values automatically, just the currency in which they're denominated. So if you have a product costing 100 USD and change your currency to JPY, that product will now cost 100 JPY. You'll want to make adjustments appropriately.

Thank You Notice

When your customer purchases products on your site, she will be sent an invoice via email. You can customize the notice that appears at the bottom of the invoice by changing it here.

When Sold Out

If you track stock for some or all of your products, you can specify what happens when that product sells out:

  • If you choose Show product in store as Sold Out, then the item will remain visible on your site, but customers will not be able to purchase it. Instead of an "add to cart" button, they'll see the words Sold Out.
  • If you choose Do not display product, then the item will automatically be hidden when the final unit is sold.
  • Move to sold section adds a sold gallery to your page. Find out more on how to sue sold galleries here.

Of course, you can always manually hide or show a product using the visible column in your products list.

Is there a way to edit the number of products shown on the main page of my shop?  Currently my shop only shows 6 products before spilling over to the next page.  I'd like to show more products per page.  Thanks.
