Configuring the App Default Config Resource

The App Default Config resource has properties that affect the functionality of your site and Commerce Server Business Desk. For example, you use the App Default Config resource properties to specify the currencies you support, and to specify payment options when you set up Commerce Server to integrate with Microsoft BizTalk Server 2000.

For information about configuring the App Default Config resource to use BizTalk Server, see Configuring Commerce Server to Work with BizTalk Server. For information about localizing a site, see Developing an International Site.
