NetStores E-Commerce Components

Configuring your store


   In order to create functional NetStores E-Commerce HTML elements, you need to configure your store properties.

Launching the Dialog Box

   On any of the NetStores E-Commerce Components Dialog boxes, click the Configure Store button to pop-up a dialog box where you can setup your store properties.

Dialog box details

   You will be presented with a dialog box displaying parameters that are important for using your online store with NetStores (see picture).

Merchant ID entry - Very Important!

   Of ultimate importance on this dialog box is the Merchant ID entry box. You must type in the Merchant ID you chose when you signed-up at NetStores. If you do not remember what you chose, check your e-mail. By inputting the correct Merchant ID in this dialog box, you allow all the NetStores HTML elements (such as the Add to Cart Component), to "know" they will be used with your online webstore. You absolutely need to enter the appropriate Merchant ID on this dialog box for your NetStores E-Commerce HTML elements to function. This is the only piece of critical information you need to enter in this dialog, everything else is simply increases ease of use of the NetStores E-Commerce extensions.

The Item File - Making your job easier

   Of secondary importance on this dialog box is the item file information (which makes up the bulk of the rest of the dialog box's display). Setting this allows you to easily select a product code for Add to Cart buttons. You need to select the appropriate parameters (and location) for your item file.

   Make sure to keep your local item file settings up to date with your settings on your NetStores store.
