When setting up your online store, it's crucial to think about how you want your customers to find your products and information about your business. This is when navigation (menu) comes to play the role.

There are two types of default menus built-in on every ShopBase store:

Main menu: Displayed on every page of the online store and usually show the items listed across the width of the header. These items can be showcased in the form of drop-down menus to add subcategories to your menu.

Footer menu: Displayed at the bottom of every page. It acts as a place to add more optional/compulsory information that your customer may want to see once they've scrolled down to page bottom (e.g FAQs, shipping and refund policies, contact information etc.)
