AbanteCart has a feature to create and manage multiple stores within one single installation. AbanteCart multi-store allows you to install and run completely different themes, extensions, and content, depending on the selected store and manage multiple shops from the same back office. This means you could have two stores selling entirely different products or having two totally different target audiences all managed within one installation.
- one back-end to manage all stores
- use different templates on each store
- display different products/categories on each storefront
- display different blocks, banners... layout
- localize each store by setting a different default language, currency.
- setting different shipping and payment methods.
To create a multi-store you DON’T NEED to install a cart again or anything do with files.
Before deciding to enable the multistore determine how do you want customers to visit the second store based on the following options: one level below the primary domain, different domains or each store will have its own subdomain.
The easiest approach will be one level below the primary domain (Using subfolders: https://example.com/cars/).In order to create multiple online stores with this approach you do not need to perform domain setup. Please skip the Domain configuration step in this case.
1. Domain configuration: setup additional domain (addon domain) or the sub-domain in your hosting provider admin panel
2. AbanteCart configuration: set up the second store in the admin panel.
