Believe it or not, your set up online store is almost half way done and you haven't even done anything yet. But you can start by creating product categories. Once that's done, it's time to upload products to your store. If you've got quite a number to upload, here's an easier and faster way to do it. Download the Product Details file in CSV format from the store, fill up the necessary fields and upload it back to your store.

For product images, just zip them up and upload it to your store too. It's just that easy. As long as you follow the instructions carefully, you can't go wrong.

There's just one more thing to do before your store is ready to go live - adding shipping methods. You can either use readily available real-time UPS and USPS rates or configure your own shipping rates. Our system is quite flexible.

Once everything is done, you can now publish your store. That didn't take too long now, did it?
