Step 1: Uploading Your Store Tile


There are three steps to complete & submit your store tile. 1. Inputting details about your business. 2. Uploading an image for your tile. 3. Uploading your business logo.

To upload your store tile you will require two brand assets:

  • A Background Image: This is a lifestyle image that best represents your store you should find and save a selection of images that reflect your brand.

  • Business Logo: This should be in .png format, be all white in colour with a transparent background.

❗️

Common Mistakes when Uploading a Store Tile

  • Logo does not have a transparent background
  • Lifestyle or product image is not used
  • Logo is coloured (not all white)
  • Image and logo are uploaded together - not separately.


To access the store tile builder, click the **Admin **tile from the homepage of the dashboard and click the **Store Profile** tile.

Complete the required business details fields, including:

  • Display Name
  • Store URL (ensure to put 'https://' in front of your website URL)
  • Whether your business operates online and/or in-store
  • A short description about your business (think of this as your "pitch")
  • A long description highlighting what products and services your business offers




Once you have completed your business profile, scroll down and upload in **two separate steps**: - Your background image. This should fit to be 800x640px min and in .png or .jpg format. - Your business logo. This will need to white all white with no fine font or background.

The dashboard will allow you to make adjustments, including a cropping or resizing feature to get your tile looking just right.




When you are happy with your profile and store tile, click submit. It may take up to two business days for your tile to be reviewed. This review is essential to ensure customers get the best possible experience when browsing the Shop Directory.
