Static content pages are useful to help visitors learn what your marketplace is about. The Terms of Service and Privacy Policy are also key to your business and they deserve special attention.

Static content pages can be accessed by clicking the "About" link in the top bar of your Sharetribe Go marketplace. As an administrator, you can also access them from your admin panel, in "General / Static content".

It's a good idea to make the content of these pages unique to your marketplace business!
