How to Start My Sitebeat Online Store

Start your online store in Sitebeat with just one click. Once the Store option on your Sitebeat Editor is activated, Sitebeat automatically adds a store page and a shopping cart icon on your website. It is all customisable to match your brand.

Note: The Store option is only available for the Sitebeat eCommerce plan and will not appear on all other Sitebeat plans. If you want to set up an online store with complete SSL protection, you will need to upgrade your current Sitebeat plan or purchase a new Sitebeat eCommerce plan.

Follow the instructions below to start your online store:

  1. Log In to access the Sitebeat dashboard.
  2. Under My Sites, click the EDIT SITE option on the website that you wish to manage.
  3. Note: If you want to edit a new site, you have to unpublish the current website and make your new site as your primary website.

    Under My Sites, click the [...] Ellipsis Icon on the top-right corner of the website to unpublish the current site. Click Unpublish Site, and then click Yes, Unpublish to confirm.

    Under My Domains, click the [...] Ellipsis Icon of the website that you want to replace as your primary website, then click Replace Primary. In the pop-up window, select the domain of the new website in the New Primary Domain list, then click Replace Primary. You can also click the Domains tab under My Sites to perform the necessary steps mentioned.

    You can now edit the new site that you wish to manage.

  4. Click STORE from the left-side menu.
  5. Click the GET STARTED button, and then wait a few seconds for the Sitebeat Editor to add a store page and shopping cart icon to your website.
