Creating Your Storefront

Building a store in Liferay Commerce requires more than a complete catalog. Store administrators building a storefront from scratch will need to add a series of pages to display and sell their products. This article serves as a reference for pages that may be created for a functional storefront.

Using an Accelerator, such as Minium will create these pages for the user. Liferay Commerce is built on Liferay DXP - click to learn more about Creating Pages.

The following types of pages may be created:
