Instructions for Savi2 setup from OLD platform

There are many cool new features, but your first goal is making your new site identical to your old site with products, menus, and categories so you can go live with Savi2. Just by switching to Savi2 you'll increase customer experience and sales so by keeping things simple initially you'll avoid overloading yourself with new organization ideas and features to play with.

FIRST STEPS: 99% of your setup (must do before testing storefront)

Even though we were able to import your old website content into your new website on Savi2, there are features you need to adjust or reset on Savi2 because we’ve rebuilt how you manage those features and how they work in the storefront. Start with the items in this checklist. You can read the help section below for more instructions.

    2. Choose page layout for home page (featured, extra…)



Product Description: The biggest change to this section was we’ve removed some icons in the product description Text Editor. We juggled with this for a long time and decided to strip out some of the text because we know it will help stores sell more products. The reason people began preferring Facebook over MySpace was MySpace allowed members to control the design of their profiles, and overtime the MySpace pages were so busy and hard to read that users began preferring the clean, easy to read format, of Facebook. Our other deciding factor was looking at all major eCommerce stores like Amazon, Borders, Barnes & Nobles, etc. They all have standardized font in the product descriptions, which make it easier to read while scrolling through products.
