Making sure it's easy for your visitors to shop from your catalog is pivotal! So make sure it's set up exactly right and start adding it to your Flipbooks.
Setting up the configuration is done from the module, so you can easily apply it on Account- Folder- or Flipbook-level after.
To start configuring the Shop, simply navigate to the settings from Modules:
From here, you can add new configurations or edit existing ones:
You also have to option to copy an existing configuration:
Why would you want to do that, you ask? Well, imagine a use case of having two markets on the same account, they both have the same checkout function, only the currency and language is different. Instead of creating a new one, simply copy the existing one and edit the copy.
Creating a configuration
Let's go ahead and create a new configuration. To start, simply click Create new Shop configuration.
- Name your configuration, this has no effect on the Shop, it's simply for you to keep track of your different configurations. Suggested naming could be what Market it's for and/or what Checkout option it is.
- Decides the naming of the basket inside your Flipbook:

Allows sharing the contents of the cart via SMS.
Allow adding custom items
This allows your visitors to add custom items to the shopping cart. Where they can fill out the fields such as the items name, quantity etc.
Enabling the Shop
So, you've created your first Shop configuration, time to get it on your Flipbook! The general idea behind the Shop Module is one configuration to rule them all! In other words, not to create one for every Flipbook.
Consider adding the configuration on folder level to make use of inherited settings. Read up on that here:
Now that you know everything about Inherited Settings, let's go ahead and add a configuration to a folder:
Simply go to the settings of a Folder, then under Modules go to Shop configuration to enable it and choose which configuration. This will in turn enable this configuration on the Flipbooks in the folder, and the shop is ready to go!
