Store Designs are designs and design templates that are uploaded, enabled, or built on your website and made available for use by your customers. The designs can be made available for free, for a price, or used in your own pre-decorated products which you can make available for sale. If desired, designs which are uploaded can be protected from copying by watermarking. A store design shouldn't be confused with a stock design or "my designs".
- Store designs are uploaded by the website admin.
- Stock designs are imported from a designs catalog.
- My designs are uploaded in the Designer by a user (customer) and stored against that user's store login.
- You must have administrator access to use this feature
