of what they are here the shop page will display your products cart page will be
where the customers go to view their cart and begin checkout checkout page
obviously will be where the customers go to pay for their items and my account
registered customers will be able to manage their account details and view
past orders on this page and when a customer orders something if they’re
registered it’ll get saved in your database so they can go back and gear
later on so let’s go ahead and continue hit the continue button now you put your
store location here how United States I’m not actually in our Alabama I’m
actually in Tennessee which one doesn’t make a whole lot of difference but it
may calculate sales tax so let’s just keep it correct for time B no I’m going
