A name that is related to your product is highly recommended.

A good name can establish strong brand recognition among customers.

You can enter your store name by clicking on [Set up general information about your store] on the admin page's dashboard,or by going to [My Store > General > Store profile].

While customers must agree with your Terms of Use when they create an account, these terms must be displayed in the footer of your storefront at all times.
Note that you are required to specify your Terms of Use as customers should be able to check at anytime how their information is being used.

Cafe24 offers a standard template for the Terms of Use that can be applied to your online stores.
