Suppose, you want to create individual stores for your sellers. On these individual stores, your customers would be able to view and buy the products sold by a particular seller. They can do so by first selecting the "Store" of the given seller and then choose from the products that are sold there.

Follow these steps to create substores in your stores:
Select the Enable Multistore checkbox to enable the multistore e-commerce functionality.
Go to Settings >Substoresin the StoreHippo Admin Panel to create substores.

Select the default substore from the drop down.
Now, you need to define if you want to show or hide the substores when no substore is assigned to the records.Select hide or show in the Records With Blank Substore field.
