Enabling and Disabling Shops
To enable your shop and begin adding items to your storefront, navigate to Inventory > Shop
- Select the facility the shop should be created for, meaning the available quantities will be tracked from this license and displayed in your shop listings
- Select the Enabled checkbox to enable the shop for that facility, and it Submits
- To disable your shop at any point, uncheck that box and hit Submit
Additional required shop settings can be managed on this page:
- Shop Name - This is the name you want to be displayed at the top of your shop (see below)
- Password - This password will be provided to your customers who will access and have the ability to place orders from your shop. The same shop password will be used by all customers and internal users and can be changed at any point.
Note: Password must contain a minimum of 8 characters.
- Shop URL - Customize the URL provided to your customers to access your shop. Generally, this is the same name as your Shop Name. This field will default to: https://app.canix.com/shop/ Here, you will add text to create your own Shop URL
- To copy the shop URL, select the copy icon to the left of this field.
Adding Items to Shops
Items can be added to shops after the shop is enabled. Ensure you’re in the facility in Canix that has the shop enabled to begin adding items to your shop.
To select which items should appear in your shop, navigate to Admin > Facility Data > Items
- Select an item name
- Select Create Shop Listing at the bottom of your Item pop up (may need to scroll down to view)
- Add a display name for the name that should be listed in the shop (Can be the same as your Canix item name, or different if a more public-facing naming convention is used)
- Add a description for your customers to view when ordering products. This has no limit on amount of text and could include test results or pricing.
- You have the option to create the item for your shop but disable it from being visible in your shop. You can enable items being visible in your shop later.
