What are default selling preferences?
Default selling preferences are a setting that allows you to set up your selling region according to your target market. By doing this, you get a tailored product range in terms of availability and shipping speeds.
How to choose the right selling preference for my store?
It’s recommended that you set your selling preference according to your target market. If you want to offer fast shipping with shorter travel distances choose the faster delivery/fewer products option. If a wider product range is more important to your brand, choose the slower delivery/more products option.
Let's say, your global default selling preference is set as Worldwide, but store default selling preference is set as the US. In this case, you'll be able to browse all the products in the catalog, but when trying to push a product to your store which is outside the US, you'll get a message that it’s not possible.
Let's look at another example. Your global default selling preference is set as Europe, but store default selling preference is still set as the US. In this case, you’ll be able to browse products with fast shipping to Europe but only push them to your store if they're also available in the US.
When browsing the catalog for a specific store, make sure the default selling preference matches your store’s selling preference.
