Solidus's Settings section includes a number of pages that help you manage store-wide settings, including tax rates, shipping methods, and payment methods.
This article introduces each settings page and how the settings affect your store.
The Settings > Stores page allows you to manage some of the global settings across all of your stores. These global settings include your site's name, site-wide SEO tag data, and the sender email address used when emails are sent by your store.
If your Solidus application manages multiple stores, you can choose the store you want to edit from a list.
For more information about these settings, see the Stores article.
You can manage Solidus's available payment methods from the Settings > Payments page. Typically, a payment method is displayed as an option that customers can use to pay at checkout.
For more information about managing payment methods, see the Payments article.
You can manage the tax rates and categories that Solidus uses from the Settings > Taxes page. Solidus's taxes relate to shipping charges as well as the products that you sell.
For more information about tax management, see the Taxes article.
You can manage Solidus's returns system from the Settings > Refunds and Returns page. Because the returns system is flexible, there are many settings.
For more information about managing Solidus's returns system, see the Refunds and returns article.
You can manage Solidus's available shipping methods, shipping categories, and stock locations from the Settings > Shipping page.
For more information about managing Solidus's shipping settings, see the Shipping article.
Before you set up your shipping and tax settings, you should start by setting up zones. A zone is a group of states or countries that your store needs to ship to and/or tax. A country or state could exist in multiple zones or none at all.
For more information on how to use zones, see the Zones article.
