Create a Micro Store / Changing Micro Store Settings


Note: Theme modification involves any change to the default values in the HTML or CSS of any theme or widget. Support can direct you to the correct page to make changes or to reset the widget, page HTML or CSS to its default value. This will undo any customization that may be in place. Before you create or modify a theme using HTML and CSS it is suggested to have a backup handy.

While theme modification is outside what support is allowed to assist with, if you need assistance with making modification to the theme, our implementation department is available to make these modification at an hour rate. If the service is ever needed please let us know and we will get that process started for you. Or check out our new Theme Store to find a theme that suits your needs.

To begin creating your microstore, navigate to Settings > Microstores.

Once in the Microstore settings, click on Microstore list.

For the next step, click on new in the upper, right corner.


Now you will see the “Micro Store Editor”. This is where you can setup your microstore, you can supply names, colors, logos and much more. The Micro Store Editor also gives you the option to set cookies, require login to view the store and even set activation and expiration dates.

Now that you have created a microstore, it is time to select which products will be available in that store. To do this, you will need to set your active catalog for that microstore. Simply put, an active catalog determines which categories are active for each specific store. The path for the active catalog is Settings > Catalog > Active Catalog.

This article will guide you through the steps of setting your active catalog.
Once your microstore’s active catalog is setup, your customers need a way to navigate to the microstore. To do this, you can add a widget to your homepage, navigation or footer. For this tutorial, I have chosen to add my micro store selector widget to my header. 
Now, when you view your site, you will see the newly added microstore selector in the header.
