1: Activating eCommerce Options

eCommerce is currently undergoing Beta Testing and is not available to all users. These instructions are for our Beta Testers at this time.

Activating the eCommerce Plugin

Our eCommerce Plugin opens up an entirely new way to generate sales for your website. The eCommerce plugin adds a shopping cart, account page, checkout and paypal payment processing with a quick setup. Please be sure to follow ALL of the instructions on setting up your store or you may have some varying results.

Activate the Plugin


go to Plugins > eCommerce and activate the eCommerce Shopping Cart Plugin.

Click the Install WooCommerce Pages Button


Once the Plugin is activated, you will see an option at the very top to Install the WooCommerce Pages. Click that. This option will create a Shopping/Product Page, a Cart Page, Checkout Page and My Account Page. You can skip this step if you want to create your own pages later.  If your menu’s are set up to immediately add pages to the menu, be aware that you will need to adjust these newly created pages in your Menu Manager.  Once you have completed this step, you are taken to a “welcome” screen that you can ignore.

Go to Appearance > Navigation Menus


If you have an extra message up top asking you about tracking, you can click the Never Ask me Again button to get rid of that. Next, go to APPEARANCE > NAVIGATION MENUS. This will take you to the Menu Manager.

Add News Pages to Menu (optional)


If your new eCommerce Pages have not yet been added to your Menu, you can add them by checking the boxes next to them and then clicking ADD TO MENU.

Organize your Newly Added Pages (optional)


When you add new pages, they are added to the bottom of your navigation list. Be sure to move those around, create sub pages, etc as you wish. If you need help working in the Navigation, this tutorial will help.

Proceed to the Next Step

Now that you have installed the basic plugin and created the required pages, it’s time to set up the back end of your store.
