Configuration Basics

Cory M. Updated by Cory M.

Many features in ShipStream are highly configurable and most of this configuration is set using the System > Configuration page. In the left sidebar you will see the different categories and sections of configuration which you can access. Users can be granted access to specific categories and sections by customizing User Roles.

Most configuration can be specified at multiple "scopes" such as the Merchant, Brand, Warehouse or Global scope. See Configuration Scope for more information on these scopes and how the inheritance works.

The top-level configuration categories are:

  • Warehouse
  • General
  • Catalog
  • Sales
  • Clients

Click a section within a category to view and change the settings within this section. Each section may container one or more sets of fields. Expand a collapsed set of fields by clicking the field set header.

How did we do?
