Gathering the information on this checklist streamlines your Quick Shopping Cart® setup. When complete, you can publish without any hang ups. Let's get started.
Customize the way your Website looks to give it your own style. Pick your template, color scheme and make the images your own.
Logo: Brand your Website by adding your company logo.
Applicable color schemes: If your products or logo have a color scheme, you can unify them within Quick Shopping Cart. Think about how you want your Website to look. Check out the options on the Template tab and also in the Colors & Fonts screen.
Information: Collect your contact information, including company address, phone number and primary phone. You can add this information to Quick Shopping Cart so it displays on your storefront, giving customers an easy way to contact you.

Adding products to your Quick Shopping Cart can take time, but being thorough allows customers to easily identify the products they want to purchase.
Product Images (recommended under 300x300 pixels): Include an image with every single product. This helps your customers identify exactly what they're looking to buy.
Product Dimensions (including weight): A product's dimensions calculate its shipping costs.
Product Descriptions: Thoroughly describing your products helps customers decide if that's the right product for them.
Inventory: If you want to have Quick Shopping Cart track your inventory, make sure you have a current list of your stock.

Once your customers select their products, they need to arrange for payments and, if applicable, shipping.
Payment Options: Select the payment type you want to accept from the eligible list of payment options (PayPal Express, PayPal, COD, Print and Call or if you have a Merchant Account, Credit Card).
Taxes: Laws on e-Commerce change often, so be sure to get the advice of a tax accountant or attorney.
Shipping: Determine the shipping options you want to offer your customers whether it's flat rate, FedEx, USPS, UPS, freight or custom. You can also arrange for them to pick up their order locally.
