Install the app to stores you want to sync between each other, choose a pricing plan (or start a free trial). After that, 3 steps are needed to be done:
After the app is installed in at least two stores and selected the pricing plan, you need to connect these stores between each other.
During installation, the main store is already chosen in Step 1. It is only required to select a language and, optionally, a region for each store.
There are several settings for every store connected that need to be set up on Step 2:
Store language This is the required option. A language can be chosen from the language dropdown. During installation, it is required to choose a language for each added store to proceed to the next step. You can add several languages and regions to each store in Advanced settings by pressing Add and choosing the required options from the dropdown.
Store country/region.This is optional. A region can be chosen from the country dropdown. If chosen, the store will be displayed for a particular region only.
Main store (x-default). When no language/region that is defined in the app matches the users’ browser settings, they will be redirected to this store. For example, if a user’s browser settings are defined as Spanish-Mexico, and there are no stores added to the app with these settings, these users will be redirected to the x-default store. The main store is chosen during onboarding and can be changed later.
Main language store (en/fr/es…). This is a store type, which is independent of the region (i.e. store in French for both France and Canada customers). By default, the first store on a particular language is considered as the main language store in the app. This status can be changed after connecting the next stores.
If your store(s) use translations or have Weglot app installed, proceed with this instruction once you've done Step 3.
These settings can be changed later on the Stores page.
Also, see how you can change the language/domain settings of your Shopify store.
Step 3 is divided into two parts:
Please note that Step 3 should be performed for every store that is about to be connected to the app.
