Changing your store's language

The Online Store supports 40 languages. Provided you have enabled all the supported languages,  the language that your customers can view your store in see will be automatically set based on their browser settings. 

This means that your customers will see your store in a language most suitable of all languages enabled by store owner.  If there are no appropriate enabled languages, the default language will be shown. 

To enable or disable languages, and set your default language, follow steps 1 - 3 above, and then: 
  1. Log in to My Yola.
  2. Click on Online Store in the top menu.
  3. Click on "Advanced Options" in the bottom right-hand corner of your product list.
  4. Click "System Settings" in the top right-hand corner. 
  5. Select "Languages". 
  6. Select your default language. English is the preset default language.
  7. You can also enable or disable languages, if you'd prefer not to support them. 
  8. Click "Save" in the top-right corner. 
  9. To return to the Online Store control panel, click "X" in the top-right corner of the dialog box.

Product options

One of the most important features of any online store is the ability to offer your customers choice! Whether it's being able to choose their t-shirt size, or selecting what size bag of coffee they'd like to buy, customers appreciate not being forced into buying an item they have no control over. 

The Online Store allows you to customize the product options for each of your products. Here's how to get started:
  1. Log in to My Yola.
  2. Click on Online Store in the top menu.
  3. Under your product list, click on the pink "Add/Edit Products+" button.  
  4. Select the product you'd like to edit.  
  5. In the Product dialog box, select "Options". 
  6. Click on "*New Option".
  7. Select the way options will be presented to your customers (e.g., a drop-down list), type of option (e.g., 1lb bag) and price difference between options.   
  8. Click "Save" in the top-right corner. 
  9. To return to the Online Store control panel, click "X" in the top-right corner of the dialog box. 
  10. The product options will appear when a customer selects the product and their choices will be displayed in their order.
