You can make a quick configuration of your store in the Wizard Installation section. All configuration items in this section will be distributed into the corresponding modules in the Configuration section. It also means, that once one form in this Wizard Installation section is updated, the same item in the related module under the Configuration section will do simultaneously, vice versa.
When you enter the administration panel for the first time or you have not configured the Wizard Installation before, the window of Wizard Installation will present automatically to suggest doing configurations with it.
Without further ado, look at the steps in which you can set up basic information for your store easily.
- Store Configuration
Forms in this step may also be found under the admin>Configuration>Configuration>My Store section. Refer to the My Store for more details.
Set a zone of the country for the store. It is necessary to enter because it will be used in tax or shipping cost.
Tax Decimal Places
Pad the tax value this amount of decimal places.
Invoice Start Number
Set the initial number for the invoice.
Store Address and Phone
These information will present in the invoice and packaging slip.
- E-Mail Options
Forms in this step may also be found under the admin>Configuration>Configuration>E-Mail Options section. Refer to the Email Options for more details.
The store email address for receiving information which will receive any emails set through the website. This should be a single email address only.
The emails in the "From" field of any emails which have been sent show which website the emails come from. This should be a single email address only.
Send Extra Order Emails To
Through the email address orders will be received. Here several email addresses could be set for backups. If the store owner's email is not in this listing the store owner will not be notified of an order. Whereas the 'E-Mail Address' above is for only one entry, this is how to effectively add addresses to that function.
E-Mail Transport Method
If SMTP is selected, the fields of SMTP Host, SMTP Port, SMTP Username and SMTP Password are required. If sendmail, these above fields are not editable. More information, go to Email Options.
Set to True to send emails to the customer when they register or checkout after purchase and set to False to disable the sending of emails to customers.
Forms in this step may also be found under the admin>Configuration>Configuration>Shipping/Packaging section. Refer to the Shipping/Packaging for more details.
Country of Original
The country of origin to be used in shipping quotes.
Postal code of the store to be used in shipping quotes.
Enter the Maximum Package Weight you will ship
Carriers have a maximum weight limit for a single package.
Package Tare Weight
This is the weight of your shipping box and packing material.This overhead weight is added to the weight of the products when computing postage.
Larger Packages-Percentage Increase
This is the minimum portion of packing material for a large order. Setting this to 10 means packing a large order increases its weight by 10%.
The system estimates the weight of the packing material as whichever is larger: the fixed Tare weight, or the percentage of the product weight.
For example, set Tare weight=0.25 and Percentage=10. Then a 1-kilogram package gets 1.25 kilograms worth of postage (the fixed Tare weight is larger). And 100 kilograms of product gets 110 kilograms worth of postage (the variable percentage is larger).
Default Shipping Unit
The unit of weight to be used for shipping is set as Grams, Kilograms, Ounces, or Pounds.
Note: Wizard Installation should be configured completely; otherwise the Wizard Installation will present next time to suggest setting for it. Should you run into errors, reboot this section.
