About the Home Page
The Quick Shopping Cart® Home Page gives you an overview of your store's performance and easy access to the most-used features.
When you first set up Quick Shopping Cart, you need to configure several aspects of your store. These areas display as buttons along the top of the screen. Click a button to edit the settings it represents.
Note: Once you publish your store, the buttons disappear and you can access those areas through the menu system.
After you have set up the initial storefront options, the Home Page gives you a centralized location to help you manage your storefront. The following sections explain the options available on the Home Page.
