How to configure your store with AbanteCart settings

AbanteCart allows granular access to a wide range of settings for your store. To view and edit your store settings in the AbanteCart dashboard, head to System > Settings > All Settings via the sidebar.

AbanteCart Settings

You can navigate between various setting categories (All, Store Details, General, Checkout, Appearance, Mail, IM, API and System) using the sidebar or tabs at the top of the screen.

Setting Categories

Alternatively, use the filters to find settings for a particular store (if you have a multi-store configuration) or a settings group (e.g. Appearance). You can even locate a specific setting by its key.

Editing settings

Use the Edit button adjacent to a setting to modify its value.

If you decide that you wish to add a new store to your portfolio, you can do so using the Plus icon at the top left of the screen, or by selecting System > Create New Store from the sidebar.

There are several advantages available for users setting up multiple stores:

  • You can theme each store differently to build relevant brands for the type of products that are being sold.
  • Set products to appear on specific stores from one administration interface.
  • Localize each store by setting a different default language, currency and tax class.
  • Set up default customer groups for specific stores – allowing you to have stores set up for retail or wholesale customers.
