This is where you configure your general Store Settings and merchant settings for payment processing.
Store Administrator: This is the contact person who is 'in charge' of the store. All inquiries will be routed to this person. This list will show you the administrators of your site. You can setup new administrators within the system > Settings > Users area.
Order Notification Email Addresses: Enter the email addresses that should receive email notifications when an order has been placed. If you enter multiple email addresses, separate each by a comma.
Low Inventory Notification: Set the number here so that our system will notify the store administrator when any product's inventory level falls below this number. This is only available on products that use inventory.
Store Notification Sender: Email notifications throughout the store area including email receipts to the customer are sent through our third party mail sending service. However, you can set the Display Name and reply-to Email address here.
Store Display Settings
Store Page Title - Enter the title of your store page(s) that will be displayed in the title bar and tabs of your visitor's browsers. This generates the 'Title' meta tag for the store page.
Store Template - Just like you can associate a template for each page on your site, you can associate a template for your store page(s) here.
Product Detail Image Thumbnail Size: This is the default setting for images displayed when viewing the product's details. Generally, these are larger than the list view thumbmail size.
Product List Image Thumbnail Size: This is the default setting for images displayed when viewing a list of products. Generally, these are smaller than the Product Detail Image Thumbnail Size.
Continue Shopping Page: This allows you to select the page to return the buyer to once the buyer is in their cart. If you leave the drop down choice that is blank, the customer will return to the previous product viewed. If you select a particular page, when they choose to click continue shopping, they will be routed to the page you choose.
Order Receipt Header: This allows you to enter custom text (or html) that will be included in the email receipt that is sent to the customer. This is great for company contact information or special notes or messages.
Order Receipt Footer: This allows you to enter custom text (or html) that will be included in the email receipt that is sent to the customer. This is great for company contact information or a company slogan or tagline.
Third Party Order Message: Include a message here to third parties that will be included in store order notifications such as fulfillment employees.
Allow Checkout - Enable this option so that your store will be enabled and ready for customers to check out on your site. If you do not turn this option on your store will function as an online catalog allowing visitors to navigate your store's products, but would not see any add to cart and checkout functions.
Hide All Product Prices - If you are wanting to hide the prices for products throughout your site, enable this option.
Allow Product Inquiries - this allows your visitors to ask questions about your products. The questions will be emailed to the Store Contact person you set below. The questions will also be stored so that you can access them within the Store > Activity > Inquiries section of the system.
Allow Product Comments - this allows your website visitors to post comments about this product so that other visitors can read these comments when viewing your products. This can be moderated within the Store > Activity > Comments section of the system.
Disable Comment SPAM Blocker - this option is on by default which adds a simple math question to the product comment entry screen. While it is highly suggested to leave this turned on to prevent SPAM bots from posting comments on your products, you can turn this off here.
Allow Send to Friend - this allows customers to enter a from and to email address with a brief message to help tell someone else about your product.
Allow Wishlists - this allows your website visitors to create and maintain wishlists stored with their profile on your site. These can be viewed in the Store > Activity > Wishlists section of the system.
Allow Giftnotes - This option allows the customer to enter text during the checkout process that will be included with their order.
Allow Tax Exempt Numbers - This allows you to accept tax exempt orders within your store. See the Tax Rate information below for a more detailed description of this process.
Enable Shipping Quotes - This option allows customers to request a shipping quote of their cart contents during the cart review process.
Show Previous and Next Links - This option allows links to be displayed at the bottom of product information to allow users to navigate forward or backwards to products. This is useful when a dynamic submenu may not meet the navigation needs of the end user.
Limits and Delays
Daily Product Limit - This specifies how many total items that are still to be shipped added to how many items are to be picked up on a specific day. So if the limit is 100 and there are 95 items (meaning individual items) in shipping orders yet to be shipped (status of: Pending or In Transaction) and 2 items to be picked up today, then the total of items for the day would be 97. That would leave 3 items left to be either shipped for the day or chosen to be picked up on the date. If the limit is reached, a warning message appears to the end user and the order cannot be processed. If the limit is not set (or is set to 0), then there will be no daily limit on items to be ordered.
Pick Up Delay - This specifies how many business days to allow between an order and the day that order can be picked up. Currently this only counts business days (days a location is open).
Enabling the option for 'Allow Auth.NET Checkout' turns on the integration settings for your store and the merchant account that will accept and process the payment. Clicking the 'Manage site payment gateway settings' link given will route you to your admin area > Settings > Merchant settings to work with your payment gateway information. That area will be where you enter your Auth.net payment gateway info. You'll want to enter your 'Transaction ID' and 'Key' into our system and select which major credit cards you'll accept.
For more information on your Authorize.net account and integration settings, see the following article: Authorize.Net
"Bill Me" Payments
Allow "Bill Me" Payment Method - No credit card is charged. You will receive an email with the customers information and will then need to handle finalizing the order manually.
Members Only? - If certain member profiles should only be granted access to checkout manually, select this option and then click on the 'Set Manual Checkout Permissions' link. You will be displayed your groups from your main People tab and will select the groups / profiles that should be allowed manual checkout permissions.
