The first step is to fill out the form to Open a Storefront

Second comes the Item file editor. It starts you out with two example products, DEMO01 & DEMO02. You can use this page to add, change, and delete products. To add a product, simply click the Add New Item button and enter information for the product in the spaces that appear. To edit an existing product, click on the product code (listed on the left side of the screen) and edit the information that appears. To delete products, select the products to delete using the check boxes to their left and click the Delete Checked Items button.
This is what the product editor looks like.

Instant-Purchase Button Code:
You can copy and paste this code into the html on your product page, close to the actual product.

<INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="nccust" VALUE="Your merchant name">
<INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="DEMO01" VALUE="1">
<INPUT TYPE="submit" NAME="order" VALUE="Add DEMO01 to Cart">

Here are some examples to help you get started:

If you have a product that comes in different sizes, styles, colors, etc, you will need to create seperate products for each combination. First create the original product, in this case "SHIRT01". This is what will show up during a search. Then create each combination for the product.
For example:

  • SHIRT01

In order to keep every product variable from showing up during a product search, use "~INV" which stands for invisible at the end of your product name as shown above. Do not use ~INV on the original "SHIRT01" or it will not show up during a search.

If you have many products, the most efficient way to create an item file (product list) is to use a spreadsheet format, or any rtf text format or ascii text, tab delineated. You can upload your item file within your Merchant Administration Page or you can send us your item file and we will take care of it for you.
