Before redoing an existing site to Exchange, I would like to know can the following be accommodated:
Home page with a master store image
Home page would list multiple product categories
Going to the category "home" page would show a category master image
Selecting the category master image would take you to multiple products within the  category (some categories having 400 unique products)

Hi John,

This isn't how Exchange is set up by default, but, with customizations, you should be able to make it work.

There is a Product Categories widget, but there isn't an option just to list the product categories on a page.  You can add the links yourself to the page.  The URL would be something like:  yourdomain.com//product-category/name-of-your-product-category

Exchange uses your theme's archive pages to create the product category pages.  So you'd need to edit your archive.php or category.php file (depending on which your theme uses) in order to display your category image.

Let us know if you have any additional questions.
