Step by Step
         Editing Your Store... (pg. 3)

Step 6

Clicking on the "Messages" tab will bring up two text boxes.  The first, the "Store Welcome Message", is the 'message' that appears on your storefront page.  This is the first page customers will see when they enter http://YourSite.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv.   This seems like a strange place for it to be located since one would expect it to be with the "headers and footers" but, in any case, it is not.

You can enter a simple text message like "welcome to my site" but it is a shame to waste such valuable eyeball real
estate when a few lines of HTML code could make your page something special.  It would be wise to use HTML coding to showcase particular products, or add graphics that link to certain "departments"/categories.  For more on adding HTML to Merchant click here.

The "Order Completed Thank You" message is fairly straight forward and is the message your customers will receive after they have completed the checkout process.  If you have any special reminders for your customers, like printing the invoice, you can do it here.

Step 7

The "Pagination" tab lets you define the number of products that show, per page, on the product list, and on search result pages.  If you have just a few items in your store, or would like customers to see a complete list of ALL products in your store when they click on the "Product List" you can choose not to paginate.  However, if you have a lot products we recommend that you display a reasonable amount of products at one time (a "next" button will allow customers to see more products) otherwise your customers may have to wait a long time for the page to load and may decide to go elsewhere.
