Below is a reference of the individual settings located in your Store Settings page. This page can be accessed by going to Settings >General >Store Settings.

This article contains the following sections:
The Store Tab is the default tab that will be selected when first navigating to the page. It will contain the following settings:
- Store Information
Here's where you'll configure general information about your store. Your settings here are:
- Store Name
The name of your store or business. It will be used as the main title tag for all browser tabs as well as inserted dynamically in all store generated emails. Furthermore, if no logo is present on the store, the Store Name will be used on the store's global header.
- Store Slogan
(optional) Here you can enter a slogan or catchphrase for your store. It will also be used for the main title tag on browser tabs. As with the Store Name, if no logo is present on the store, the slogan will appear below the store name on the store's global header.
- Store Logo
This field will allow you to upload and select an image for the store's logo. The logo will appear on the global header of each page and will also be used for HTML emails coming from the store. Note that - if a logo is specified - the Store Name and Store Slogan information will not be seen on the global header, but will still be used for the titles (on tabs) as well as emails.
- Manage Domain & Store Url
This button will take you to the Domain Settings page which will allow you to manage the domain's settings and DNS records.
Managing DNS Records will only be available if your domain is pointed to 3dcart's name servers.
- Merchant Information
Here's where you'll enter the store's Company Information including street address and phone contact information.
- Company Name, Address and Phone numbers
This information will appear on your invoices and emails generated by the store. The contact information entered here will also appear on your store's "Contact Us" page.
Alternate Phone and Fax will not appear on pages by default. However, they can be added by editing the templates to include the [phone2] and [fax] variable tags respectively.
The email entered in this field will be used as the FROM email for the various notifications (password reminders, CRM ticket notices, etc) sent to you and your customers from the store. Ideally, this email address should be something @yourdomain since it will be seen as your store's main email address when messages are received and to also avoid SPF conflicts.

- Invoice Logo
This section of the Store tab will also contain an area for your store's invoice logo which will allow you to specify the version of your store's logo that will appear on invoice emails and pages.
- Invoice Terms
Information entered here will appear on the store's generated invoices
- Regional Settings
This section will allow you to control regional settings of your store. Your settings are:
- Store Time Zone (GMT/UTC)
This is the time zone you will be specifying on your store's order timestamps. When viewing your actual order invoices, the time stamps will reflect this time zone specification. Please click here for more information.
- Currency Symbol
Use this field to specify the desired currency symbol for your store. (i.e. $, £, or ¥)
- Decimal places on price
This new feature will allow you to designate how many decimal places your product prices will contain. This can be useful if your products are small products that have fractional values ($0.045) but must be ordered in bulk.
- Currency Code
Use this drop-down menu to select the standard 3 letter currency code that will be used for your online payment gateway. For example:
- USD - US Dollar
- CAD - Canadian Dollar
- EUR - Euro
The Display Options tab will contains settings that control certain display aspects of your store's products. Your settings here are as follows:
