  Configuration My Store Country The country my store is located in

  Configuration My Store Zone The zone my store is located in state or province, inserted during setup default ZC  
  Configuration My Store Expected Sort Order This is the sort order used in the expected products box. expected = upcoming default ZC desc
  Configuration My Store Expected Sort Field The column to sort by in the expected products box. choices or product name or date expected   date_expected
  Configuration My Store Switch to Default Language Currency Automatically switch to the language's currency when it is changed This would only pertain to a multi-language cart if you are showing a language change sidebox. Since languages are not tied to a specific currency most of the time, it would be rare to change this setting. default ZC false
  Configuration My Store Language Selector Should the default language be based on the Store preferences, or the customer's browser settings?

Default: Store's default settings
choices are default or browser - this again would only apply to a multi-language cart. default ZC Default
  Configuration My Store Display Cart After Adding Product Display the shopping cart after adding a product (or return back to their origin) Choices are true or false. I prefer always to show the cart afterwards but it is not uncommon for a cart owner to request the other. This is a hard to find option so good to remember this one! default ZC true
  Configuration My Store Default Search Operator Default search operators choices are "and" or "or", better (fewer) results are usually found with "and"

search for this and that or search for this or that
default ZC and
  Configuration My Store Store Address and Phone This is the Store Name, Address and Phone used on printable documents and displayed online Will show on contact page as the default option is to do that - to change that, look under email options. default ZC Store Name Address Country Phone
  Configuration My Store Show Category Counts Count recursively how many products are in each category TURN IT OFF. It adds load time and looks trashy to me. Only shows in the categories sidebox in parentheses. default ZC true
  Configuration My Store Show Category Counts - Admin Show Category Counts in Admin? Best left on so you can see if you have products in the categories. default ZC true
  Configuration My Store Tax Decimal Places Pad the tax value this amount of decimal places normally tax rates are entered as 7 for 7 percent. I suspect that if you pad with 1, then the tax rate becomes .7 percent. default ZC 0
  Configuration My Store Display Prices with Tax Display prices with tax included (true) or add the tax at the end (false) US carts of course won't have the tax included most likely but UK carts who only sell locally will probably want it display (that would be with VAT included). They have specified ways of displaying these kinds of things. default ZC false
  Configuration My Store Display Prices with Tax in Admin Display prices with tax included (true) or add the tax at the end (false) in Admin(Invoices) Agan most likely don't want this turned on except for UK VAT default ZC false
  Configuration My Store Basis of Product Tax On what basis is Product Tax calculated. Options are
Shipping - Based on customers Shipping Address
Billing Based on customers Billing address
Store - Based on Store address if Billing/Shipping Zone equals Store zone
so if shipping, then the end destination but if billing, it could be on someone's company credit card that has a California address - gets messy that way. default ZC shipping
  Configuration My Store Basis of Shipping Tax On what basis is Shipping Tax calculated. Options are
Shipping - Based on customers Shipping Address
Billing Based on customers Billing address
Store - Based on Store address if Billing/Shipping Zone equals Store zone - Can be overriden by correctly wr
most states do not require tax on shipping but a few do. Check to see if your state does and the state law may be what guides this choice. default ZC shipping
  Configuration My Store Sales Tax Display Status Always show Sales Tax even when amount is $0.00?
0= Off
1= On
obivously having this off reduces clutter in the appropriate places. Some folks who charge sales taxes in multiple states may want this turned - at least for testing. default ZC 0
  Configuration My Store Store Status What is your Store Status
0= Normal Store
1= Showcase no prices
2= Showcase with prices
  default ZC 0
