How do I set up store views in Magento?

Here's how to set up store views in Magento:


  1. Access Magento Admin Panel: Log in to your Magento admin interface.

  2. Navigate to Stores Settings:

    • Go to the Stores section on the admin sidebar.
    • Click on Settings.
    • Select All Stores from the options.
  3. Create a New Store View:

    • Click the Create Store View button.
  4. Configure Store View Details:

    • Store: Choose the parent store from which this view will inherit settings.
    • Name: Enter a descriptive name for the store view (e.g., Spanish). This will be displayed in the language chooser on your storefront.
    • Code: Assign a unique code using lowercase characters to identify the view internally (e.g., spanish).
    • Status: Set the status to Enabled to make the store view active.
    • Sort Order (Optional): Assign a number to determine the order in which the view appears alongside other store views (optional).
  5. Save the Store View: Click the Save Store View button to create the new view.

  6. Configure Language (Optional):

    • To customize the language for the store view:
      • Go to Stores > Configuration.
      • Switch to the store view you want to configure by selecting it from the dropdown.
      • Under General > Locale Options, set the desired Locale (language) for the store view.

Additional Notes:

  • Store views inherit product information and configuration from the parent store. You can customize specific content like product names, descriptions, and prices for each store view.
  • Magento allows you to create multiple store views to cater to different languages, regions, or customer segments.
  • Consider seeking help from Magento documentation or a developer for advanced configurations or troubleshooting.

By following these steps, you can establish store views in your Magento store, offering a localized experience for your customers.
