Step 2: Creating sale sections

From Plumrocket Documentation

To launch the store you will have to create a SALE SECTION first.

SALE SECTION is used to group subcategories or several stores according to various criteria, such as their relevance in a particular time period.

Each store belongs to a definite category or subcategory which allows you to schedule the work of different boutiques by setting different periods of activity for each subcategory separately.

Follow these steps to create your first boutique, organize the products and understand the basic rules of creating the structure of categories and stores that will meet your needs.

Previously, you have learned how to create a Sale Section that will contain both active and planned boutiques. For your convenience we also suggest creating one more sale section to collect the boutiques that are no longer active.

It is not obligatory to create a sale section for non-active boutiques, but this will make your operation of the system much easier.
