Personalizing your Storefront
You can customize your B2B storefront to reflect your brand, mission and values, branding strategy, and commercial policy. So let’s see how you can make your B2B Wave eCommerce platform your own.
Editing your B2B Store’s Basic Info
To add and manage the primary information your customers can see on your storefront, such as your logo, company description, language options, country, and timezone, follow these steps:
Step 1. Go to Settings >Profile and click the “Basic Info” tab.
Step 2. Enter the necessary information in the appropriate fields.
Specifically, here you need to specify the following:
|Company name||Add here your company’s name|
|Enter your company’s email (e.g., email@example.com)|
|Language||Select your preferred language from the relevant drop-down menu. Remember that the option you select here will reflect on the email notifications you receive through B2B Wave, such as new order confirmations|
|Company description|| Type a short description of your company. This description will appear in the “About” section at the footer of your storefront
|Minimum order value||Set the minimum value required for an order, if applicable. By doing so, customers cannot confirm their order if its value is lower than the minimum one you have specified here|
|Country/Timezone||Select the appropriate country and time zone from the drop-down menu|
|Currency||Choose your currency from the drop-down menu|
|Logo|| Drag and drop or click on the box to upload your company logo
|Email signature|| Type the text you want to use in all your email communications through B2B Wave. Remember that you can adjust your text using the available formatting options
|Public products|| Check this option to allow visitors to view products on your Home page without viewing their prices. Site visitors must log in to access the rest of your store, product pages, and pricing information
|Public pages|| Check this box to make your storefront public; this means that customers and unregistered users can browse your B2B portal normally. However, visitors can only view product prices if they log in or register for your store
NOTE: If you check both the “Public product” and “Public pages” options, site visitors can browse your site and view your product offering. If you leave both boxes unchecked, visitors will only see your login page
|Out of stock products status||Select from the drop-down menu you want to display on your storefront when a product runs out of stock (e.g., Pre-order, Sold Out, Not Available)|
Step 3. Click “Save” to store the changes you have made.
Customizing your B2B Store’s Appearance
Once you add your basic info to your B2B Wave account, you can customize your storefront’s appearance to align with your company branding. To do so, complete these steps:

| Primary color
|| Choose the color of the navigation bar, various buttons, sidebar hover, and more
| Primary font
|| Select the font of the header and the text throughout your site from the drop-down menu
|Favicon|| Click to upload a custom favicon for your storefront. The favicon will appear on the address bar of your browser when accessing the site or next to the site name in a user's list of bookmarks.
