Use the General tab to set the country, language, time zone, and contact information for your store.
The Current Configuration Scope list at the top of the left Configuration panel defines the range over which the configuration settings apply. Some configuration settings apply globally to everything in the site, while others are more limited in scope. If you have multiple stores on your website, you can change the scope and make different configurations settings for each store.
The scope of the configuration is shown in [square brackets] to the right of the setting.
|Default Configuration||Configuration at the Default level applies to all websites if a website- or store-specific value is not set.|
|Main Website||Configuration at Main Website scope, like Default, applies across all stores and store views. Certain settings, like Table Rates, can be made only with a Main Website scope.|
|Main Store||Configuration at Store scope applies only to the specific store.|
|Storeview (English, Spanish, etc)||Store views are used to configure language- or country-specific settings.|
