Site Information

Introduction

The Site Information tab from your System drop down essentially determines whether you are a Content only website or an eCommerce website. It is important to fill out this information for two reasons:

                   1.  To gather company contact information to be used on your Contact Page, website header and/or website footer

                   2.  To determine the address of origin for selected calculated shipping options.
