Getting Started

Setting up your first e-commerce site can be daunting. We're here to help walk you through all of the important steps in bringing your store idea to life. Follow the steps below and read more about each topic to help make the process go smoothly and quickly.

Step 1: Choose the store solution that's right for you.

Develop a clear sense of how you would like your store to function and look — it will save you time and money in the long run. Then pick the option that best fits your needs and budget. Once you choose a store, Cambria can start setting it up almost immediately!

Step 2: Secure a domain name.

Purchasing the perfect domain name isn't something that has to happen right away, but if the name you're counting on turns out to be unavailable, you might end up changing the name or logo of your store. For that reason, we recommending finding a domain name early in the store development process.

Step 3: Find a reliable hosting provider.

Of course, it's easy to host your store with Cambria, but we are happy to set up your store with another hosting provider. Read more about hosting for features you'll need to ensure your Cambria store works properly.

Step 4: Think about adding a Secure Certificate to your store.

Secure Certificates help protect your customers' information by encrypting the data they input and make customers feel safer during a transaction. Learn more about types and costs of secure certificates here.

Step 5: Select a payment processor.

Cambria Stores make it easy for store owners to process credit cards manually, and this step is not required. But many store owners want to be able to process credit cards immediately. If you're one of them, read about which payment processor might be best for you.

Step 6: Add products and custom features to your store.

Cambria's store systems make it simple for you to manage information about your products, vendors, and customers. Plus, we're happy to add new features — read about some of the more common extra features we add to stores.
