👋About your channel
Description:Use 280 characters or less to describe your newsletter. This short description is placed at the top of your Store and the top of your newsletter archive page.
Logo:Upload a square .jpg or .png image. It should be 300px wide and 300px tall. Logos are not currently displayed on your Store or newsletter but may be used within Letterhead soon.
Timezone:Select the default time zone of your newsletter from the Time zone dropdown list. The timezone defaults to Eastern Standard Time though you should always confirm it's accurate.

If you don't want to share your current mailing address, you can quickly sign up for a P.O. Box or commercial mail receiving service.
Select the days you publish to help build your schedule inventory. There are other ways to manage your promotion inventory, like Skip Days and Promotion Type schedules.
What days of the year do you skip:
Special days when you will not publish a newsletter so that advertisers don't purchase and schedule promotions for that date. Holidays, vacations, planning weeks, and unique campaigns are everyday events to block off.
Schedule buffer (in hours):
This is the time limit (in hours) of how soon a promotion can be scheduled. This is commonly used so that you have time to review, approve, or ask for updates before your newsletter is set to publish. Also, suppose you pre-produce your newsletter in advance. In that case, a buffer will prevent a customer from scheduling a promotion after your newsletter has been scheduled, resulting in the advertisement not running as expected.
A toggle switch that turns yourStoree on or off.
These metrics are displayed in your Store, and the numbers can be manually updated by you here. Use decimals for percentages (25% = .25). Some users like to use exact subscribers, while others will round their numbers. The only important thing is to provide accurate numbers that properly represent your brand's engagement.

Sender email address:
This is the literal email address your subscribers will see when they receive an email from you. Your default Letterhead sending email address will follow this format: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you wish to change this to your domain name, please fill out a support ticket. You cannot change this field without help from support.

When a subscriber hits reply to your newsletter and send an email response, this is the email that will receive the reply.

Be sure there is a contrast between your background, font, and accent color, so it is readable to all subscribers.

Advanced Look & Feel
Advanced Fallback Fonts:
These fonts can be selected so that you may give a consistent newsletter experience regardless of your subscriber's system. These fonts will be used if your primary fonts do not render for a subscriber. These are the most common fonts a user can have.
You can drop your own custom CSS elements into this field to make micro-adjustments to your newsletter's look and feel. Read the detailed documentation on what is and isn't possible in email CSS.
Automatically insert promotions:
By default, automatic placement is set to off. Automatic promotion insertion is being slowly phased out as some bugs can occur. Learn how to use manual promotion placement using promotion placeholders.
