Store management

  1. On the Settings page, use the links on the top right menu to access the Selling promotions section to manage your availability and publication schedule:
    1. Publication days: Select all days that you publish, or send, this newsletter.
    2. What days of the year do you skip? Select all days that you would typically publish, or send, this newsletter but plan to skip. For example, a widely observed holiday like New Year’s Day. Be sure to update this each year.
    3. Scheduling buffer (in hours): Prevent promoters from scheduling promotions within a certain number of hours before your publication or send time.
    4. Learn more
  2. ⚠️ Important! Connect your account to Stripe — this is how you will get paid.

  3. You're all set! The last thing to do is to activate your store, still in the Selling promotions section, switch the Store visibility toggle to On when you are ready to activate your store, then click Store in the Letterhead menu to view your store live.
