Commerce Engine and Storefront configuration settings
The Commerce Control Panel is installed when you install Commerce Connect. The Commerce Control Panel enables you to configure commerce engines, your storefronts, and business tools by editing content in Sitecore. You can edit the Commerce Control Panel content in the Content Editor, under the sitecore/Commerce/Commerce Control Panel folder.
For information on how to add an Environment field, see Troubleshooting.
The control panel content is organized in three folders.
Commerce Engine Settings
The Commerce Engine Settings folder contains Commerce Term items for the Commerce Engine or related business tools. Each Commerce term represents a user interface string or system message that can be translated or localized. A number of terms are created in the Commerce Terms folder when the Commerce Engine is installed; other terms are added when the business tools are installed. These terms are similar to the Dictionary entry items in the Sitecore dictionary (in the Content Editor: sitecore/System/Dictionary) but are only used for Sitecore Experience Commerce, and are therefore stored in the Commerce Control Panel folder.
A Commerce Term item has the following fields:
Value field – contains the localizable text string. The value can be a fixed string or, for example, a system message based on .NET string format that is interpreted by the Commerce Engine. This field is mandatory.
Description field – contains a description or explanation of the term, or a tool tip. It can also be empty; using this field is optional.
You use the Storefront Settings folder to configure your storefront or storefronts with the options that you have defined in the Shared Settings folder.
For each storefront, you create a Storefront item, and under each Storefront item you can insert the configuration items that are needed for that storefront.
Assign one or more countries or regions to a storefront from the list that you defined in the Shared Settings folder.
When you create a Country/Region configuration item, you must rename it without the /, for example, Country-Region configuration.
Currencies Display Adjustments
Each currency has a default currency symbol and display format (.NET standard). To use an alternative currency symbol or display format for one or more currencies, insert the Currencies Display Adjustments folder, and insert the relevant Currency items.
When you create a Currency item, the name for the new item must be the currency code.
In the Currency item, you can fill in the fields to change how the currency symbol or amount is displayed.
In the Currency Symbol field, enter a currency code or special character, for example USD or $.
The Currency Symbol Position field enables you to determine the position of the currency symbol in relation to the amount. To determine whether the symbol appears before or after the amount and whether or not a space is inserted, enter 0, 1, 2, or 3 according to the following key:
0 = $n, 1 = n$, 2 = $ n, 3 = n $
In the Currency Number Format field, you can specify a .NET culture code (for example, en-US, fr-CA, or en-CA) to determine how amounts are formatted, for example, which character is used to indicate the decimal place.
Use a Currency Display item if a currency requires more than one display option.
Select which currency set is available on the storefront. You can select from the sets that you created in the Shared Settings folder.
Specify which fulfillment options will be available on the storefront. Some fulfillment options might not be compatible with all items (for example, physical items cannot be delivered digitally), so the content of the shopping cart also influences which options are visible on the storefront.
Select which language set is available on the storefront. You can select from the sets that you created in the Shared Settings folder.
Specify which payment options will be available on the storefront. Some payment options might not apply to all items (for example, some items might not be eligible for payment with loyalty points), so the content of the shopping cart also influences which options are visible on the storefront.
