  3. Enter the default list price book ID to be used by the storefront.

  4. Specify if you want to disable responsive design, which is enabled by default.

  5. Enter the tag to be used by the storefront application as a Google verification tag.

    Note: This tag is the Google tag used to verify the site.

    See Http://Jquery.Malsup.Com/Cycle/Browser.Html for a complete list of visual effects.
