Knowledge Base:  Design - Site Builder:  E-Commerce Shop Page - Initial Setup

Details:
Website Manager allows you to create an entire ecommerce shopping page 
complete with shopping carts and integrated payment gateways. To create a Shop 
Page, just select the "Shop Page" radio button in the "Change the type of the Web 
page" page, and click "Submit" to load the page to allow you to choose a layout.
Just click on the shop page layout that is most appropriate to the kind of shop that 
you want to set up.

This section allows you to choose a payment gateway and enter shipping fee 
details or it displays 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 and when 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" and "total weight". Also you can select 
the "no shipping charges" option 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, etc.).


Tax Calculation:
Enabling this feature "Apply Tax" allows you imply tax on items that are purchased 
from the shopping page. Disabling the same does not allow you to simply tax on 
any of the product purchased.


Once you fill in the above details and submit, a 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 the shipping fee details are submitted, if the "Tax Calculation" option is 
enabled then this page loads prompting you to enter percentage of tax to be 
added. This can be fixed at a flat rate or the same can be customized to vary 
based on State or Status.

Note: Only one option can be selected.

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.
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 Catalog page
You will also be able to set your shop page as a product catalog page by checking 
the "Make this a product catalog page" option available on the top of the page. 
This option creates a simple catalog 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.
