Create a Site in Business Manager

When you create a site in Business Manager, it contains no content or business data such as, products, prices, or features. Add data and images as part of your customization. Most developers use SiteGenesis as a starting point for the ecommerce storefront because it is optimized for performance and usability.
Note: If your data is based off of SiteGenesis, you can import SiteGenesis data for testing purposes.
  1. Select Administration > Sites > Manage Sites.
    Use the sort buttons to list your sites in the order that you want them to appear.
  2. Click New.
  3. On the New Site page, enter the following information:
    • ID--Name the site up to 32 alphanumeric characters. You can't use spaces or special characters, but you can use hyphen and underscore characters.
    • Currency--Select a default currency for the site. As of version 14.2, you can use multiple currencies for a single site, but only one currency is the default. See Multi-Currency Sites.
    • Taxation--Select Net or Gross. U.S. sites usually require Net. and EMEA/Asia sites usually require Gross.
    • Description--Enter a description for the site.
  4. Click Apply.
    The site is created with the General, Settings, Cache, and Security tabs active. Salesforce B2C Commerce also creates directories for storefront-specific data (for example, images) and a domain for the new store on the server database.
    Note: To develop on this site, you must have access privileges.
The next step is to Disable Page Caching for the site, so you can immediately see changes made during development.
