Frequently asked questions

  • Connect your web address, also known as your domain to Lightspeed eCom to improve your eCom store's branding and SEO. Add your domain to your eCom Back Office in Settings > Domain. Then, when you're ready to publish your eCom store publically, create a CNAME record in your domain provider.

  • A common reason your shipping method doesn't appear in checkout is because the shipping address is not served correctly for your region. Another common reason is that your shipping method does not have a weight range that includes the products in your cart. Shipping methods can be managed in your eCom Back Office, under Settings Shipping methods.
