E-commerce website settings

You can configure the Kentico E-commerce Solution settings that determine the behavior of your on-line store in the Settings application in the E-commerce category.

Alternatively, you can configure your on-line store settings in the Store configuration application in the Store settings section.

The system doesn't allow you to configure payment gateways settings from this location.

To configure your on-line store settings, take the following steps:

  1. Open the Settings application.
  2. Select the E-commerce category from the settings tree.

  3. Select a site using the Site drop-down list.
                                         

    • You can select a specific site, for example E-commerce Site, to configure settings only for this site.
    • You can select (global) to configure global settings for your whole on-line store.

      You can configure global settings for your on-line store also in the Multistore configuration application in the Store settings section.

                                                    

  4. Configure your on-line store as required.

    Separate sites inherit the system's global settings if Inherit from global settings next to corresponding site‑specific settings is selected.
