Page Settings

Pages need to be set so WP Dispensary knows where to send users to perform certain actions:

  • Menu Page – This page is where you will display your products.
  • Cart Page – This page shows the current items in your patient’s cart.
  • Checkout Page – This page lets your customer enter their payment information and submit orders.
  • Account page – This page customers will go to view their orders or update their account details.

You aren’t required to use the pages WP Dispensary installs, but you must have a page set for the Cart and Checkout pages. Otherwise your patients cannot place orders.

These pages are created and set when WP Dispensary is installed and activated.
