  1. I am currently using this Shop Domain: https://prueba.multicompras.cl/ I want to change it into https://multicompras.cl/ 

    If I change it in the BackOffice, do I have to change it in the database also?

  2. How can I change my web address, and remove the pswebstore, so for example, www.website.pswebstore.com to www.website.com


    I hope you can help me out. thanks.

    1. Hello Mon,

      Are you saying you have the store currently in a subdomain of your website and want it to display as the website? Or are you moving the store from a subdomain to the main site? It is best to have the domain pointing to reflect the location of the store.

      If you have a store as a subdomain on another site, then you would need to have the domain name purchased and pointed to that subdomain prior to changing the URL as described above. Then it will display using just the domain name.

      Kindest Regards,

    1. Hello Pramod,

      I am not quite sure what you are asking. Can you provide a link so we can visually see what the issue is? Also, if you can provide steps to duplicate the problem, that would be helpful.

      Kindest Regards,
