- Click “select files” to upload a picture from your computer
- Select photo, then click “select and crop” in bottom right hand corner. From there you can crop your photo or skip the cropping. Banner images that are 625px x 300px work best.
- Next, update your profile picture. The process is the same as adding your banner
- Select how many products per page you would like to showcase (we suggest a higher number so that customers don’t have to flip through several pages to see your products). For example, make sure there isn’t a second page with just one product on it.

- Enable tab on product single page view for customers to see full product description
