Setup the ecommerce pages
To display the products, the shopping cart, and the checkout procedure to the users of your website, you use widgets. The widgets are controls which you drop on the page (in page content editing mode) and configure them. Before you design the pages, you must have created products, payment and shipping methods, and all other required settings. For more information, see Define products and other parameters.
Before you add the widget to the pages, create the pages that you will need throughout the store. For example Login, Registration, ProductList, ProductDetail, ShoppingCart, Checkout, Orders, Invoice, Confirmation.
IMPORTANT: For all of your ecommerce pages, you must turn off caching. You must install SSL certificate on the website and you must configure your login, checkout, and any confirmation pages to require SSL.
For more information about creating pages, see Pages.
For more information about designing the page layout, see Page layout.
For more information about using widgets, see Adding widgets on your page.
