I'm opening my store using Magento 2 and looking for some advice as I don't really understand the differences between websites, stores and store views.

It's a single business running on different countries.

URL structure will be: www.mystore.com/en-us/ - US store www.mystore.com/en-uk/ - UK store www.mystore.com/en-au/ - AU store www.mystore.com/it-it/ - IT store www.mystore.com - International store (everything but US, UK, AU and IT)

  • Inventory is shared across all stores
  • Product attributes are different in each country (description, images, price and currency - beware I need to set each price manually, not auto convert through currency converters)
  • Tax are different for each country
  • Shipping options are the same (we only use one warehouse), but shipping costs and timings are different
  • Static page content (images, text) is different
  • I don't mind if customer database is global or splitted, but I want to prevent any user to register an account in multiple countries.

If anyone would have any advices on how to configure Magento would be awesome.

  • so what is the problem here? – MagenX May 27 '16 at 6:53
  • @MagenX "I don't really understand the differences between websites, stores and store views." - I think the question is clear: should UK/AU/IT be different websites or just different stores and why? – Fabian Schmengler May 27 '16 at 7:25
  • i think the easiest way to understand it -- is to read some docs and create two demo stores, then websites, etc. this is your business so you must test it anyway before start. – MagenX May 27 '16 at 8:46

"Product attributes are different in each country (description, images, price and currency - beware I need to set each price manually, not auto convert"

Based on this sole requirement you are looking at individual websites per "site".
