Below is a reference of the individual settings located in your Store Settings page. This page can be accessed using Settings > General > Store Settings.
When viewing the Store Settings page, you will see the page sorted into individual tabs at the top. These headings will then contain their individual configuration settings.
The Store Tab is the default tab that will be selected when first navigating to the page. It will contain the following settings:
Here's where you'll configure general information about your store. Your settings here are:
The name of your store or business. It will be used as the main title tag for all browser tabs as well as inserted dynamically in all store generated emails. Furthermore, if no logo is present on the store, the Store Name will be used on the store's global header.
(optional) Here you can enter a slogan or catchphrase for your store. It will also be used for the main title tag on browser tabs. As with the Store Name, if no logo is present on the store, the slogan will appear below the store name on the store's global header.
This field will allow you to upload and select an image for the store's logo. The logo will appear on the global header of each page and will also be used for HTML emails coming from the store. Note that - if a logo is specified - the Store Name and Store Slogan information will not be seen on the global header, but will still be used for the titles (on tabs) as well as emails.
Manage Domain & Store Url
This button will take you to the Domain Settings page, which will allow you to manage the domain's settings and DNS records.
Here's where you'll enter the store's Company Information including street address and phone contact information.
Company Name, Address and Phone numbers
This information will appear on your invoices and emails generated by the store. The contact information entered here will also appear on your store's "Contact Us" page.
The email entered in this field will be used as the FROM email for the various notifications (password reminders, CRM ticket notices, etc) sent to you and your customers from the store. Ideally, this email address should be something @yourdomain since it will be seen as your store's main email address when messages are received and to also avoid SPF conflicts. Click here for more information.
This section of the Store tab will also contain an area for your store's invoice logo which will allow you to specify the version of your store's logo that will appear on invoice emails and pages.
Information entered here will appear on the store's generated invoices.
