Multiple Stores Back End Functions

Here is my scenario : I will have 4 ecommerce stores but I have not set any of them up with ecwid yet, or added the online store feature.

One store will be my main domain www.greatvintagejewelry.com - and that is the back end I want to use for all payment transactions. Im not using any payment processor : I want to use Paypal and Stripe, already have accounts with both.

My new domains will be separate stores but the inventory is part of greatvintagejewelry.com

In order for my payment back end to be running on www.greatvintagejewelry.com, do I have to set this site up first, or add the store front to this site ?

My problem is this. That site is a really big site : about 2000 products.

I want to set up one of my new sites first, like AntiqueVintageEarrings.com but I want the payment setup in ecwid to be the same as GreatVintageJewelry.com

Confused LOL !

Hi confused
I have just set up 2 of my stores and you will need to set up your site first then you can set up the online store in the "systems set up", this would then be the payment gateway for your other stores.
With that number of products you would be better to import them to your new product page.
Go to online store >Catalog > products > import products.
Hope this helps

Thanks Peter ~ Yes, I can see what you say is the logical way. Didnt want to do it that way, but it might circumvent unforeseen issues...

Hi,

When you add the Online Store to your account, it can be used on all of your sites.  On the back end, it is one store and currently it is only possible to have one store per Yola account.

You can designate the main store URL in the General settings.  Once you have added your store, you can set up categories, and display separate categories on each of your sites.

This way, you can offer different products on each of your sites while maintaining a single database of products.

Take a look at this tutorial for more information:

Jen- thanks - I understand it's all one back end and in essence it's like having multiple storefronts with one shopping cart. I don't think I have to set up the one big storefront first and I can setup the Sub - storefronts first, and just set up the payment means to my existing accounts. But right now, I'm trying to get an answer to my other post about the background on the Morada Ridge site.

Please just look at my site on android or tablet.... I think some spacing issues are breaking the code causing the background to look to small
