    Setting Shop for the First Time: When you begin to create a shop for the very first time, you will automatically be taken to the Shop Settings page to set the basic details about your shop, before you actually start creating your shop page using the Website Manager.

    Shop Settings

    The Shop Settings page allows you to set the Payment Gateway details, the shipping options and freight rates for your online shop. When you begin to create a shop for the first time, you will be automatically prompted to enter this information before you actually start creating your shop page.

    Current Payment Gateway & Shipping Fee Option:

    This section provides the current payment gateway and shipping fee option that has been previously selected by you. This is for your reference only and you may continue with the same settings or modify them as you prefer.

    Mode of Receiving Payment:

    You need to select one of the available payment gateways for receiving online payments from your customers. The available online payment gateway options include Authorize.net, 2Checkout, Verisign, Paypal or through Email.

    Depending on your service provider, some of these options may not be available to you. Your service provider will choose the gateways that they support in their environment. Please contact your service provider for additional details.

    Depending on your choice of payment gateway, you will be asked to enter the relevant payment gateway parameters in the subsequent page.

    If you choose 2CheckOut, then you will be prompted to enter your 2Checkout Account Number. If you choose Authorize.net, then you will prompted to enter your Login ID, Transaction Key and your choice of currency. If you choose Paypal, you will be prompted to enter your Paypal Email Address and your choice of currency. In case you choose Verisign, you will be prompted to enter your Verisign Login Name and the Partner’s Name. You may also choose to receive your payment offline via email by choosing Email as your Mode of receiving payment.

    Shipping Details:

    You need to select one of the shipment methods from the drop down menu for calculation of shipping charges. The options provided are ‘flat fee’, ‘flat fee + weight fee’, ‘percentage of total order’, ‘total weight’, etc.. You can select the ‘no shipping charges’ option also if you decide not to charge any shipping fee.

    Unit of weight:

    You need to enter the unit of weight for your product like pounds, kilograms etc.

    Currency:

    You need to enter the currency to be used for your shop (USD, Euro, Pound etc.).

    Once you fill in the above details and submit, the following page loads prompting you to enter the Shipping Fee Details.

    This is where you enter the actual fee for calculating the shipping charges for your customers. Once you submit this detail, your shop would be all set and ready for you to create the actual online storefront, which your customers would be visiting. You can visit the Shop Settings page at any time in future to change your fee, currency and freight options. Once you have provided the basic Shop Settings, you can now proceed to create the shop page.

    Just click on the shop page layout that is most appropriate to the kind of shop that you want to set up. Once you click, the following page is displayed.

    This above page allows you to start adding the details of each of your products that you want to sell online. All the mandatory fields are marked by a ‘*’. You need to fill in the details for each product that you want to display on your online Storefront, separately.

    If a particular product has variations (like size, style, colour, weight, flavors, etc.), then you can just fill in the main details for the actual main product and the many product variations thereof as category options for your customer. You can do this by filling in the ‘Field Name’, ‘Field Type’ and ‘No. of Options’ fields provided at the bottom of the main product details. You can choose between a check box, pull-down menu (or) even a radio button as appropriate for your product. In the ‘No. of Options’ field, you need to enter the number of variations available for each product field.

    This allows your customer to indicate his/her preference by choosing one of pre-defined options that you have set. Example: Suppose you sell shirts, you would fill in the details of Cotton Shirts as one of your main products. And within cotton shirts, you would create Fields (or categories) such as Size, Sleeve, colour, etc. Once you submit all the required information about your product on this page, the following ‘Edit Field Properties’ page is displayed which allows you to add the predefined value options for each of the field names (categories) that you have chosen.

    The values that you enter here will appear as choice options for your online customers when they visit your web page. Once you enter the details, you can preview your product along with the details and options, as it will appear on your final online shop page. If you are satisfied with the design template you can then proceed to either add more products or publish the shop page right away.

    Importing data using a CSV file

    You will also be able to import data directly from a CSV (comma separated values) file, instead of manually typing in the individual data for each product. To do this just click on the “Import CSV file” link available on the top of the page, then select and upload the particular CSV spreadsheet file which contains the shop data.

    Setting as a Product Catalogue page

    You will also be able to set your shop page as a product catalogue page by checking the “Make this a product catalog page” option available on the top of the page. This option creates a simple catalogue page where your users can only view and browse the items in your shop but will not be able to ‘add to cart’ or purchase the item.

    Create / Edit a Form Page

    Website Manager allows you to create a Form page (such as Contact Form, Survey Form, Polling Form, Registration Form, etc.) for your website.

    To create a Form, just select the ‘Form’ radio button in the Change Page Type’ page, and click ‘Submit’ to load the following page.

    This page allows you to start providing the details of the Form that you want to create with the ‘Form Title’. The ‘Form Title’ that you enter here will be displayed alongside the Form on the final webpage.

    The Field Name is the name of the final form field. The Field Type could be a Text Field, Text Area, Check Box, Radio Button, or a Pull down Menu.

    ‘No. of Options’ denotes the number of check boxes or radio buttons or number of entries in the pull down menu that is required by you. You can also make your visitors to compulsorily fill up a particular field, by clicking the appropriate checkbox under the mandatory field column (first column).

    You can also add a new field to your form or even delete a particular field at any time.

    Once you submit all the required information for your Form, you can then proceed to provide the individual values for each of the field category options that you had created.

    Once you provide all the values for the individual field options, you can then proceed to preview your Form as it would appear on your website and later publish it to your website once you are satisfied.

    Create a Ready-made Contact Form Page

    Website Manager allows you to add a readymade contact form page to your website. To add a contact form, just select the ‘contact Form’ option in the corresponding ‘Assign Page Type’ drop down menu, and click ‘Go’ to load the following preview page. To add this form page to your website, just click on the ‘Approve’ button.

    Create / Edit a Guestbook Page

    Website Manager allows you to create an online guest book where your website visitors can leave their questions, comments, suggestions or contact about your website. To add a Guest Book, just select the ‘Guest Book’ radio button in the Change Page Type’ page, and click ‘Submit’ to load the following page.

    You can then create the heading and introduction for your guest book using the ‘Add/Edit Guest Book Heading’ editor. Once you click ‘Submit’, the Guest Book page with your custom heading and introduction will be created.

    You can then proceed to preview your Guest Book as it would appear on your website and later publish it to your website once you are satisfied.
