    Create a shop id in shop admin and use hide internal catalog in catalog tab.

    Assign this shop id in XCM setting.

    • Hi Sateesh chandra/ Martin,

      thanks for replying - Making those changes didnot exactly resolve my problem. I had to create a catalog (say test_cat in backend - transaction wwm1 - without any materials and layouts) and assigned test_cat fro the shop in shop management and that resolved the issue.

      Before that I believe I had made only those changes that you had specified and checked which did not work.

      thank you once again
