A Store is a custom page where you can display multiple Campaigns in one place. Stores do not change the basic functionality of your Campaigns. Each of your Campaigns must run for 7-21 days and meet the minimum print requirement.
Stores are automatically unlocked for anyone on Bonfire who has sold 50 or more shirts in Campaigns. However, even if you don’t meet this minimum, you can contact us to have Stores turned on if needed.
Once the feature is enabled, open the “Store” tab in your Dashboard.
From there, click the “Create my Store” button to view your fully customizable Store. Begin by clicking the green plus sign to select which Campaigns you would like to add.
You are able to add any Campaigns to your Store, so long as they aren’t drafts. This includes any previously launched Campaigns—unsuccessful, active, or inactive. While we recommend turning Smart Launch on for any Campaigns in your Store, it isn’t required.
If you are not seeing a Campaign in the list to choose from, it has not been launched. Head to your Dashboard to launch a drafted Campaign so it can be included in your Store.
Expanding, Minimizing, and Removing Campaigns
By default, when you add a Campaign to your Store all of the product styles within that Campaign will be visible. This is called the “expanded view.”
When you hover over the top right of the expanded Campaign area, icons will pop up allowing you to minimize or remove that Campaign. To collapse a Campaign so only the featured product is displayed, click the minimize icon.
In the minimized view, text will be placed below the product advising customers how many other styles are available.
Changing the Featured Product Image
To change a Campaign’s featured image in your Store, open the Campaign page and click the “Edit Campaign” button in the top right. Once in edit mode, you can choose the product style, color, and front or back, orientation you would like to feature. Hitting “Save” and “Publish” will update what’s shown in your Store.
At this time, you are only able to customize the preview image for the first product in the expanded view.
Once your Store contains two or more Campaigns, you can reorder them to your liking. Simply hover over the top right of a Campaign and the reorder icon will appear.
Take it to the Next Level
Now that you understand how to set up your Store, it's time to learn how to use Stores most effectively.
Since the Campaigns in your Store will operate independently of one another, orders will be printed and fulfilled in separate batches and on different timelines. If a buyer purchases from multiple Campaigns in a single checkout and one of the Campaigns fails, they will not be charged for that Campaign.
