Overview

The Site Information tab determines whether your website is an ecommerce website or based only on content. It is important to fill out this information for two reasons:

  1. To gather company contact information to be used on your Contact Page, website header and website footer.
  2. To determine the address of origin for calculated shipping options.

    ๐Ÿ”ŽNote: To complete your Site Information tab, you will need to have Owner or Manager-level access to the back-end of your Web Shop Manager website. You will also need to know the physical address of your business and the contact information that you want made publicly available. Most website owners prefer to have a generic email address such as Info@ or Sales@ as their public email address.

    Viewing the Site Information tab

    In Web Shop Manager,  hover over System and click Configuration.
