With this, some companies of this structure have the option to set-up multiple stores in one website. One of the advantages in doing this is to keep a single database of the customers, business partners and other vital information that the multiple stores owned by one can share. So in this work instruction, we will show you how to set-up the Multi Store in Magento 2.
First thing that you need to do is the Configuration process. Go to the admin panel and go to Stores > Settings > All Stores. As you will see, you can view here the list of all the stores that have already been set up. This time add a new store by clicking the button in the top right portion tab “Create Website”.
To create a new website, fill the form for the new website after clicking “Create Website.” The information to encode are the Name that refers to the name of the website, the Code or the store code that has to be a unique one, the Sort order and the Set as Default where you will determine through ticking if the new website will be the default store for your Magento 2.
After completing on the details, clicking the “Save Website” will save the work. Return to the list of stores that you set up. This time, the new website should now be added to the list.
