Store Directory Overview
Our ShopKit clients know the value of displaying all of their stores, restaurants, and retail partners in one easy location. Buyers can find the location they need based on the categories, areas, and contact information you make available to them.
Find what you Need
When you add a new store, you can feature these items with each retail partner individually:
- Name and description
- Contact information including mappable location
- Facebook and Twitter integration (Instagram included for app users only)
- Associated images and logos
- Categories and Areas
Easily rearrange the Stores you set up by dragging and dropping them in the new order. You can select "edit" to adjust the details of the Stores you set up, or outright delete them.
Are you getting nervous because you have hundreds of stores and don't want to set them all up individually? Don't fret, we have an import option in our settings.
Sort your Stores into different Categories. Give each category a name, description, and an image. When you add your Stores, you can apply one or more categories to each store. You can rearrange the order of the categories any time with the drag and drop method.
On the public facing side, these categories are filterable, so your shoppers can find the stores, restaurants, and retail partners with ease.
You can create Areas to further sort your stores by location. This is especially useful for clients who want to display their retail partners throughout a particular city or large building. The "Areas" could be varying neighborhoods or cities, or they could be different Levels within a mall.
Within the Settings section, you can configure different options that will make your store setup process even easier.
Integrate your Store Directory with our Locator Map using Google Maps. There is an API key you first have to set up with Google, which you feed into your overall site settings. There are some details instructions available when you are ready to set this up.
You can also choose to display the map in the Store view. This may help your shoppers locate the individual stores even quicker.
Default hours are a quick and easy way to set up hours for your individual locations. If you have multiple shops that follow the same 9-5 schedule, set those hours up under default hours. Then when you go into the individual store you set up, you can select to populate those store's hours using the default hours you previously set up in the settings section with a click of a button, rather than typing it all in again.
If you have dozens or hundreds of locations to set up, the thought of doing them all individually might be daunting. Instead, use our Import Stores functionality. There is a CSV document you download with examples of how you can set up the data. When your store information is saved in the CSV document, you can upload it into the settings section.
