Creating a store

Select a store template from one of the many templates included with iistorebuilder Studio. Each template supports different functions such as member logins and includes alternative page layouts.

Don't be too concerned if you can't find one you don't like as the templates can be fully custom designed or you can even design your own!

Preview your store on your own machine

Having used the create store wizard to create a store you will now be able to view your store on your own machine via the iistorebuilder Maintenance application interface (shown on the left) or from within a standard web browser.

Previewing your store on your own machine is made possible due to the fact that the application ships with a development version of the iistorebuilder server software. This server software enables you to preview your store and any changes you make offline on your own machine.

Custom design

On your own machine you have full access to the source code of the store templates and cascading style sheet. Modifications can be made to these and the changes previewed using the development version of the iistorebuilder server which is also included.

Design changes can vary from simple customizations of color schemes, header and footer designs to a full custom design job changing any aspect of the store templates. See Custom design for more information.

Uploading your store

A built in Send To Server wizard enables you to upload and synchronize your store with the remote server. Your database will typically be hosted in a high capacity Microsoft SQL Server at your ISP. No database knowledge is required as Send To Server takes care of synchronizing your database with the database at your ISP.

Maintaining your store

Once your site is uploaded you can login to your site at anytime using your administrator login. The administrator login will give you access to the Browser Based Maintenance System (BBMS) which enables you to produce real time reports on transactions, customers and affiliates. You can also add/edit/delete inventory, freight details and system information.
