Each shop on Blomming has a dashboard - a control panel from which you can manage all your settings and activities. The dashboard can be reached by logging in to Blomming and clicking the 'Manage shop' link that is found in the menu bar at the top:
The dashboard features a search bar at the top, which you can use to easily search for products within your shop, a 'Go to site' menu, and a user menu.
To the left, you will find the name of your shop and the vertical menu from which to access the various sections of the site. All related content will be displayed on the right.
In the centre of the page, you will see suggestions for activating your shop: uploading a product, settings, accepted payment methods and how to customise the graphic display of your shop.
Under the guided suggestions, you'll find the 'Insight' graphic, which displays sales reports based on the dates you select from the calendar at right.
Under the 'Insight' symbol, is a list of the most recent orders submitted, a list of the last clients that bought items from your shop, and a space for the news feed, which Blomming will use to tell you about updates to the platform.
From the 'Go to site' menu, you can select a subscription plan or bring up your shop's active sales channels.
The 'E-commerce' sales channel relates to your site; if you have a connected subscription, click the grey 'X' to bring it online. The image above shows 'camaleonte10', which is an example of an admin password that is generated by Blomming for your shop. You can give it to those who you want to allow to see your shop even if it isn't 'live' online. All they need to do is enter it in the 'Under construction' page, which can be reached from the URL of your shop. You can customise it by clicking the admin password. The 'Manage' link will let you customise the graphic layout and theme of your shop, while 'Display' will bring you to your online website.
The Blomming sales channel covers the publication of your products in the Blomming marketplace. If you have an active subscription, you can automatically sell your products on your website and on the marketplace. Click the grey 'X' to activate the channel, then click 'Manage' to bring up the channel settings. Click 'Display' to open the details page for your Blomming shop.
The Facebook sales channel covers the publication of your products in the shop window of your connected Facebook page. If you have an active Blomming subscription, you can click 'Manage' to connect to your Facebook page. You will then be routed to a guided process that will let you instal Facebook pixels in your boutique.
Check the status of your subscription in from the 'Subscription' section of the dashboard. During the free trial period (lasting 15 days), you cannot activate the sales channels.
From your user menu, you can open the section relating to your personal account, read useful information in the online Blomming guide from the 'Help' link, and logout from Blomming.
