The Store Address page lets you configure the physical address for your store. This address is used as the primary "From" location when calculating shipping rates unless drop shipping is used, and it will also be shown in some instances, such as in your e-mail receipts and shipping notifications.
The following prerequisites will be necessary to accomplish the goals of this article:
- Have access to your Hotcakes store administration
There are no prerequisites to follow along with this article.
Store's Address Settings
Click the Settings menu item and then click Store’s Address.
When you arrive on this view, you'll likely already see an address that you previously entered, such as when you initially used the getting started wizard to configure the store.
You'll find that these address fields work the same as any other address input view in the administration area. Again, this address is used for shipping rate estimates and is shown to your customers, so it should be your primary warehouse location, which may or may not match your store's headquarters address. If you have multiple store locations, you may want to take advantage of the drop shipper features.
