1.1 Intro to BRIKL
BRIKL is a premier ecommerce software platform for custom products and group sales, including:

Before you start using BRIKL, it is important to first understand some of the basic concepts that makes BRIKL's platform unique.
1.1.1 Multi-Channel And Multi-Store
BRIKL is a multi-channel and multi-store ecommerce software platform.
BRIKL allows for multi-channel management using only one account. A channel can be an online shop, a microsite (team store) or integration with a 3rd party platform.
- Online store
- Microsite (team store)
- 3rd party integration (eg. Shopify)
BRIKL allows for multi-store management using a single account. A store can either be an online shop or a microsite (team store).
- Multiple online shops
- Multiple microsites (team stores)
1.1.2 Assigning Products/Collections/Teamstores
Because BRIKL is multi-store ecommerce platform it is important to make sure that each product, product package or collection is assigned to either an online shop (storefront) or to a microsite (team store). If a product/collection is not assigned, it will not appear in your online shop or team store.
Likewise, each microsite (team store) must be assigned to an online shop. If only one online shop is available, it will be assigned by default to the MyBRIKL online shop.
1.1.3 Assigning Content Pages
Because BRIKL is multi-store ecommerce platform it is also important to make sure that each content page is assigned to at least one online shop (storefront).
1.1.4 Content Pages Vs Product Pages
BRIKL's content builder allows you to create content pages for your home page, about us page, contact us page or any other page, using an intuitive drag-and-drop editor.
Product and collection pages
Product pages and collection pages are generated automatically by BRIKL based on the information you provide in the BRIKL Dashboard (Catalog > Product).
You can preview product pages and collection pages by clicking on the preview button. Preview pages are statically rendered pages to preview what the website page will look like. Preview pages are not live pages.
The layout and styling of the product and collection pages can be customized using the theme editor.
Cart and Checkout pages
The layout and styling of cart and checkout pages cannot be customized. However, you can choose to add text or graphic components below the cart cart and checkout pages. This can be useful if you want to provide additional information for your customers about e.g. discounts or shipping at checkout.
1.1.5 Print And Production Ready
You can convert 3D designs that you receive into 2D print ready files.
You can generate a team store report with one click that you can send to production.
