Tailor Your Shop Design

You have used the Set-up Assistant to specify your shop’s basic design and to enter important data for identifying your shop. Ultimately, nothing more is required to impart an appealing design to your shop. There are, of course, many more ways of customising your shop in accordance with your personal needs. We have therefore provided you with appropriate design elements.

Below is an overview of the standard elements on a shop’s home page with additional information about them and how you can access them in the administration (see table):
