Sales Channels Overview
In this document, you’ll get an overview of sales channels in Medusa and learn about their importance in your ecommerce store.
Sales Channels are multiple channels that you can sell your products through. For example, you can have a sales channel for the web storefront, another for the mobile app, and another for selling across social media platforms.
By default, there’s a default sales channel in a Medusa store. You can add multiple sales channels.
How Sales Channels Work
Sales channels are associated with data and settings in your ecommerce store.
For each sales channel, you can choose which products belong to that sales channel. A product can be available in more than one sales channel.
Then, when customers place an order from a sales channel, the order is associated with that sales channel. You’ll be able to see the sales channel an order was placed from in the Medusa admin.
