This post covers the basic checklist of items to be taken care of by shopping cart owners before they go live with their cart.
- Domain Name: Cart owners have to decide the name of the domain they would like to have for their shopping cart. The availability of a domain name can be checked online by visiting http://whois.domaintools.com and once a domain name is confirmed by the cart owners, it will be registered instantly by the Five Minutes system.
- Payment Types: Cart owners have to decide the types of payments they would like to accept on the shopping cart and enable it using the ‘Manage Payment Types’ feature in the admin tool. The list of payment types supported are: Debit / Credit cards, bank transfer, cash on delivery, etc.
- Shipping Options: Cart owners have the option to decide if they want to handle shipping using the system or handle it offline. This can be handled using the ‘Manage Shipping Methods’ feature in the admin tool.
Once you are done with these, you can proceed with the next steps. The post about Admin Tool Basics will be the most useful to proceed from here. Click here to read the same.
