Create a Web Storefront

Overview

This article explains how to create a new Web Storefront.

There are two ways to create a Web Storefront:

  • If you want to start from scratch, you can create a new Web Storefront.
  • If you already have an existing Web Storefront that you want to use as a starting point, you can copy an existing Web Storefront. The settings and products assigned to the existing Web Storefront are duplicated in the new one, potentially saving you the time of configuring those things a second time.

 

To Create a New Web Storefront from Scratch

  1. Select the Storefronts menu on the left-hand side of the FastSpring App.
  2. The Web Storefronts tab may be selected by default, but if not, click to select it.
  3. Click the Create Web Storefront button on the right-hand side of the page.


     
  4. The Create Web Storefront popup window appears. In the Company Sub-Directory Storefront ID field, enter an ID for your new Web Storefront (with no spaces). The ID entered here becomes part of the Storefront's URL. For example, if you wanted to create a special Storefront for a holiday promotion, you might enter holiday.


     
  5. Click the Create button at the lower right-hand corner of the popup window. Your new Web Storefront appears in the list of Storefronts.


     

Note:  If your newly created Storefront is Offline by default, you must click the button and select Switch to Online before you can begin processing live customer transactions via the Storefront.

 

To Copy an Existing Web Storefront

  1. Select the Storefronts menu on the left-hand side of the FastSpring App.
  2. The Web Storefronts tab may be selected by default, but if not, click to select it.
  3. Click the More button below the Storefront you want to copy, and then select Copy.


     
  4. The Copy popup window appears. In the To New Storefront URL field, enter an ID for your new Web Storefront (with no spaces). The ID entered here becomes part of the Storefront's URL. For example, if you wanted to create a special Storefront for a holiday promotion, you might enter holiday.

    Warning

    Do not click the drop-down selector in the To Existing Storefront field and select an existing Storefront unless you want to replace an existing Storefront completely(Note:  If your Store has only one Web Storefront, it has to be the default Web Storefront and cannot be overwritten. Therefore, the To Existing Storefront field does not appear in that case.)



     
  5. Click the Finish button at the lower right-hand corner of the popup window. Your new Web Storefront appears in the list of Storefronts.


     

Note:  If your newly created Storefront is Offline by default, you must click the button and select Switch to Online before you can begin processing live customer transactions via the Storefront.
