How do I curate the products customers see when first they visit my store?
You can curate your store home, which is the first thing customers see when they visit your store, by accessing your store’s merchandising tools. To do so, log in with your artist account, visit your artist dashboard, and click “Manage My Store” under the “My Store” dropdown button.
Your store home contains all of your products available for sale on Minted. You can feature up to 12 products at the top of your store. The rest of your products will be shown at the bottom of your store home under “Other Products.”
You can also change the title of your “Featured Products” to something more descriptive. For example, Rachel from Alethea and Ruth chose to feature products inspired by “Painterly Brush Strokes.”
How do I add new products to my store?
When you self-launch products or the Minted Production team launches products to Minted.com, products will be automatically added to your store. In some situations, it may take up to a week for products to appear in your store, so please be patient. However, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if it takes any longer than a week after the product launches.
Since you can actively curate your store and choose the order in which products are displayed, you may want to change your store settings so that newly launched products are added to the back of your store home. This ensures that you have the proper time to curate your products to make them look great for your customers.
What can I do with the sections in my store?
There are many things you can do with these custom sections:
- Rename the section
- Hide the section from consumers
- Permanently delete the section
- Add or remove products from the section
- Change the order in which products are displayed in the section
Can I create my own section?
Yes, you can create your own section from the sections page in your merchandising tools.
You can also change the order in which sections are displayed to your customers. Customers always see your sections in a navigation bar at the top of your store.
What are hidden sections?
You can choose to hide a section in the sections page. You can have up to 10 active sections that are displayed to your customers at any point in time. Hidden sections can be useful if you want to save a seasonal assortment for next year. For example, if it’s February 17, you may want to hide your “Valentine’s Day” section for next year.
