1. Introduction

The Topic covers setting up a store, adding two products, and adding the Store and the Cart to the main menu.

Important Note: Do not edit any of the Store pages - it will break your site. These pages are set up automatically and are special pages that contain a special layout and a special functionality. No need to do anything to them. In fact, editing them will break them. Do not open the pages up in the Builder. Changing the layout will break things and you will have to start over! Read the simple and brief instructions below and in about 10-20 minutes you will have a store set up.
