Add it to your site
- Get in touch and request access for your site
- Once you've received confirmation, in the control menu, go to Apps > Shop
- Enable the shop, enter your initial settings, and save your changes
- You will be led through creating your first categories (optional) and products. (You can also come back to this process later by going to Apps > Shop > Products in the control menu.)
- When you've finished adding products, ensure at least one category and at least one product are set to show on the site (in the list views, click "Offline" to toggle to "Live").
- Add your payment and shipping methods
- In the control menu, go to Pages > "Page ordering" button, and drag your shop category pages to where you want them to appear in your main menu.
When the shop app is enabled, a dedicated quick access panel is added to your dashboard. The panel displays:
- A tally of new orders; click to view the full order list
- Number of items with available stock below the "par" level; click to view the full item list
- "At a glance" report of your sales figures (more in-depth reporting coming soon)
- Quick access buttons to jump straight to managing orders or products
- A checklist covering anything you have yet to do to get your shop fully operational
