Virto Commerce Store module

APIs and UI for managing stores

A store in Virto Commerce represents the collection of settings for the web page (storefront) to function correctly. That includes item catalog to showcase, available currencies, languages, payment methods, even UI themes, pages and much more. A default storefront as well as sample stores are provided by the Virto Commerce team.

Virto Commerce platform is multi-store by design. This gives the ability to have and run multiple stores on the same system.
