This extension allows a single Solidus instance to have several customer facing stores, with a single shared backend administration system (i.e. multi-store, single-vendor).
Store model which has the following attributes:
1.1 name - The display name for the store.
1.2 domains - a line separated list of fully qualified domain names used to associate a customers session with a particular store (you can use localhost and/or IP addresses too).
1.3 code - which is a abbreviated version of the store's name (used as the layout directory name, and also helpful for separating partials by store).
1.4 default - one store should be marked a default as a fallback in case the URL being used to access the site cannot be matched against any of the configured stores.
Stores and domains can be maintained via the configuration section of the Admin interface
Each store can have its own layout(s) - these layouts should be located in your site's theme extension in the app/views/spree/layouts/store#code/directory. So, if you have a store with a code of "alpha" you should store its default layout in app/views/spree/layouts/alpha/spree_application.html.erb
Each product can be assigned to one or more stores.
All orders are associated with the store / domain that they were placed on.
