With the Shops feature you can extend ASA2 with other affiliate program providers besides the historically underlying one of Amazon. Shops make it possible to assign products to the shops and thus apply properties that are shop-specific to its products.
The options presented here are a snapshot in time. The Shops feature will be continuously expanded.
For each shop you can store a logo. This is automatically displayed in Managed Templates included in ASA2 to indicate the connection of a product to a shop to the visitor.
To save a logo for a new shop, click the “Set logo” link in the logo metabox in the sidebar.
Then select an image from your media library or upload a new one. The logo graphic should be at least 500 pixels wide. During upload, ASA2 automatically creates logos in different sizes that can be used in product templates using these placeholders:
Usually, individual parameters in the URL are used to generate affiliate leads. If the individual product URLs should not contain this parameter, it can be stored here. ASA2 will then try to append this parameter to all URLs of products of this shop.
Since we don’t know all affiliate systems in the world, this may not fit for all shops. In such cases, please contact the support so that we can extend the feature.
The default country specifies the country that will be preselected when you create a new product for this shop. The country is important to show the correct currency for the price of the product.
With this option you can define an individual text to be displayed as a disclaimer text for a product of this shop. Otherwise, the default text will appear, which can be customized in the Translation section.
After a shop is created, it can be selected for a product in the Products section. Depending on the shop settings, there may be different product properties. Also, the shop logo, if it exists, will be displayed in the included templates for that product, if available.
