Guide

Adding a store

If you have not added store functions on your Website, click "Store" on the left menu. Choose from the store options. It is free to add up to 10 products in your store. To add more than 10 products to your store, you will need to upgrade your account.

Localizing your store

For your store to work, you need to provide units of currency and weight for your products. The default is the U.S. dollar and kilogram, but you may wish to change these to better suit your location.

Setting up your shipping

If you're selling physical goods, you'll want to set up shipping for your store to make sure your customers pay you for the cost of shipping. If you aren't selling physical goods, you'll want to disable shipping for those products.ecommercegettingstarted4_en-US.png

Setting up payment options

You need a way to get paid. By default, PayPal and Stripe are the simplest ways to let your customers pay you, but we allow for a huge variety of other payment methods. Click the PayPal or Stripe options to select a payment method, or click "Advanced payments setup" if you want to use a different method.
