Select the payment methods that you accept & setup your merchant account
Choose which payment methods you accept. Select the credit cards that you accept, configure PayPal and enable other payment options. If you have a merchant account with one of our supported merchant processing gateways, choose your gateway from the list and enter your gateway account information. Once your gateway is set, the shopping cart will automatically submit transactions to your gateway for authorization.

Submit a test order
Once your store is setup we recommend testing the system to verify that it is setup correctly. Go to your site, add a product to your shopping cart and purchase it. This will allow you to see how the system works and to understand what your customers will see when they purchase items from your site.
Viewing your test order
To view your orders, click the store tab and then choose the view orders link. Orders are displayed by their status. Use the order status to organize orders as you are processing and fulfilling them.
