The e-Commerce Menu

Overview

In this area you'll find information about all those settings or screens available from the "e-Commerce" menu on the menu bar, aka: the Slingbar.  This menu contains all the commands needed to setup and maintain your site as an e-commerce store.

NOTE: The e-Commerce menu is only visible if e-Commerce or one of the e-Commerce modules (e-Commerce Store Front, Online Donations, or Online Event Registration) is activated

NOTE!
