Creating a Popup Storefront

Overview

This article provides information on Creating a Popup Storefront.

There are two ways to create a Popup Storefront:

  • If you want to start from scratch, you can create a new Popup Storefront.
  • If you already have a Popup Storefront that you want to use as a starting point, you can create a copy of an existing Popup Storefront. The settings and products assigned to the existing Popup Storefront are duplicated in the copy, potentially saving you the time of configuring those things manually.

To Create a New Popup Storefront from Scratch

  1. Select the Storefronts menu at the top of the dashboard, and then select the Popup Storefronts tab.
  2. Click the CREATE POPUP STOREFRONT button on the right-hand side of the page.


     
  3. The Create Popup Storefront popup window appears. In the Company Sub-Directory Storefront ID field, enter an ID for your new Popup Storefront. The ID you enter becomes part of the Storefront's URL. For example, if you wanted to create a unique Storefront for a holiday promotion, you might enter holiday.


     
  4. Click the CREATE button at the lower right-hand corner of the popup window. Your new Popup Storefront appears in the list of Storefronts.


     

To Copy an Existing Popup Storefront

  1. Select the Storefronts menu at the top of the dashboard, and then select the Popup Storefronts tab.


     
  2. Click the MORE button below the Storefront you want to copy, and then select Copy.


     
  3. The Copy popup window appears. In the To New Storefront URL field, enter an ID for your new Popup Storefront. The ID you enter becomes part of the Storefront's URL. For example, if you wanted to create a unique Storefront for a holiday promotion, you might enter holiday.



     

     Caution

    Do not click the drop-down selector in the To Existing Storefront field and select an existing Storefront unless you want to replace an existing Storefront completely.
  4. Click the FINISH button at the lower right-hand corner of the popup window. Your new Popup Storefront will appear in the list of Storefronts.



     

     Important

    If you plan to use Store Builder Library to display product details such as prices, icons, and descriptions on your web pages, be sure to add the desired products to your Popup Storefront using the PRODUCTS command. For more information, please see Getting Started with Store Builder Library.
