StoreFront Setup Instructions

A. Ordering a StoreFront Subscription

Step 1 Once you are logged in, access your "My Account" home page.

Step 2 From the "My Account" page, click on "my account information".

Step 3 Scroll down the page and you will see a "renew/extend your subscription" link. Click it.

Step 4 Select the desired payment type and click "Submit My Choices".

Step 5 After you have submitted your payment for the StoreFront Subscription access the "my account information" page again. You should now see a "Storefront URL" link. Click it.

Step 6 If your storefront is setup correctly, you will see an empty StoreFront with a "StoreFront Manager" that can be moved and/or minimized.

B. Inside of StoreFront - Overview

Shown above is the default StoreFront Template.
  • 1. This is the main site's logo.
  • 2. You can upload your own logo.
  • 3. Use this space for a welcome message, slogan, or any other text you would like visitors to see when they visit your StoreFront.
  • 4. This section allows you to set up your own category structure for your store. By default, the very first link will be your username, but it can be changed to anything you would like, such as the name of your store. If this is your first time accessing your StoreFront, there will be no categories. They must be added using the StoreFront Manager as outlined below.
  • 5. This section is for your additional pages. You can have as many as you would like. Use these to put information for your customers. Again, if this is your first time to visit your StoreFront, you will see no links. The pages must be created.
  • 6. Visitors can input their email address to subscribe to your newsletter. The newsletter is also discussed in the next section.
  • 7. This is where your auctions and or classifieds will be displayed within your StoreFront. If this is the first time in your StoreFront, you won't have any listings showing here.

C. Setting up Your StoreFront - Using the StoreFront Manager

You will use the site's StoreFront Manager to set up your StoreFront. The StoreFront Manager is in the form of a window that can be dragged and repositioned on your screen. You are the only user that can see this StoreFront Manager, as it will only appear when "you" are logged into your own StoreFront. It can be minimized and repositioned out of the way if desired. This section will explain all of the StoreFront Manager's features.

This is how your StoreFront will appear if you are logged in and viewing your own StoreFront.

Categories Tab

  • Add a Category - use this to add a category to your StoreFront.
  • Edit a Category - Select the category you wish to rename, enter the new name, and click save.
  • Delete Category and Move Listings To - The first box is the category you wish to remove, the listings in that category will be moved to the category selected in the second box.
  • Sort Categories - Use this to change the order that categories appear in your Categories Menu.
