Overview of Store

In this article, we will discuss the hierarchy of your Store.

NOTE: In order for a Product to be viewed on the Store, it must be assigned to a Collection. That Collection must be associated to the Catalog assigned to the Store.

  1. Admin Panel - The Admin Panel is the backend setup to your Ecommerce website. This is where you will define what is available to the customer on each Store. You will create online versions of your product lines. You will define pricing available to each Store where the product is used. All setup is independent of your Control setup.
  2. Store (Previously called Storefronts)- A Store is an Ecommerce website containing a Catalog populated with Collections and Products. These Stores can be general for all customers (i.e. Public) or dedicated to one customer (i.e. Private). For a Private Store, your staff will most commonly assign login information to customers so you can control access and who receives this pricing.
  3. Catalogs - Each Store will display one Catalog at a time. A Catalog is a grouping of Collections. Collection Associations within a Catalog determine the hierarchy of product groupings that are seen on the Store.
  4. Collections (Previously called Categories)- A Collection is a grouping of Products. Collections will appear on the navigation bar as either parent or child groupings. The hierarchy is based on Collection Associations on the Catalog level. A Collection will only be visible if it contains at least one active Product.
  5. Products - Products are the merchandised items available for purchase on your Store. Each Product can include an image (static or customizable), product attributes, descriptions, and Add-Ons (if applicable).
  6. Add-Ons - Add-Ons are used to gather additional (or variable) information for configuring Products. Add-Ons can be configured as checkboxes, drop-downs, radio buttons, or text boxes. Some examples would be shirt size, color options, installation kits, etc.
