How to Set up Basic Settings for Your Store

The first thing to do when setting up your Online Store in Sitebeat is to configure your Basic Settings. These settings include the following:

  • Store Information - Basic legal information of your Store which will appear on invoices sent to your customers, such as Store Name, Email, Contact Number, Product Type, and Business Address.
  • Regional Settings - Display formats on your Store for the following: Time Zone, Unit System, Default Currency, and Pricing Display Format.
  • Sales Channels - Additional sales channels/marketplaces to increase sales and drive more traffic to your Store.
  • Payments - Payment methods and payment providers that can be used for your online store. Enable as many as you can accommodate and you’re good to go.
  • Shipping - Shipping information of your Store such as Shipping Origin and available Shipping Options.
  • Taxes - Tax calculations (where applicable) on your Online Store based on Shipping Zone and Tax Rates set.
  • Notifications - Email Settings, including Email Logo, for your Store Notifications.

Note: The Store option is only available for the Sitebeat eCommerce plan and will not appear on all other Sitebeat plans. If you want to set up an Online Store with complete SSL protection as well as easy setup and monitoring of Products and Orders, you will need to upgrade your current Sitebeat plan or purchase a new Sitebeat eCommerce plan.
