Navigate the menu


The day-to-day administration of your store takes place in the back office. This interface and its many pages will soon hold no secrets for you, thanks in particular to the menu on the left-hand side of the page.



This menu is organized into different sections. It has been designed to put the pages most useful to merchants at the top, to facilitate day-to-day navigation.

If required, the vertical panel can be reduced to show only the icons for each menu entry, simply by clicking on "<< " at the top right of the panel.
