to your e commerce web page so i can have a store not sure haw to do it, is confusing.
can i have somebody on the phone do you use skype or ichat from mac?

Answer
I went to your site at, www.xxxxx.com. I see that you have a Store button there and it says Coming Soon! I am guessing that is where you want your store to be linked to, am I right?

Here's a step by step on how to get started:

1) You have to start up your own InstanteStore trial store if you have not done so yet. Just go to:

http://www.instantestore.com/free_trial.cfm

2) Now, after filling up the login details, you will be asked to select a store template. You can look for a suitable template that will suit your current site.

If you do not want any of the templates listed, then we can help you create a custom one that better suit your current site. But just to get started first, be sure to select one of the templates that we have available. If you do not yet have a logo, just leave it blank and continue.

3) Now that you have your store backbone up, next step is to add on categories and products. Click on View Store button to view the template you have selected.

4) Make out a list on how you want your categories to show on your store. Then click on New Category and start creating your categories by filling in the information.

5) After you have your categories, next step is to add on your products. Click on New Products button for that. 

Other things to set up for the store would be to get a payment processor such as PayPal etc. and also set up shipping for your products if you plan to charge shipping for it.

Your store's now ready to start selling. :) Since you have your domain pointing to your current site, you can create a subdomain, store.xxxxx.com and point that to your store. We will need to provide you with an I.P address for it and then you get your current hosting providers and get them to add on an "A" record for the subdomain and point it to the IP address that I will be providing you with.

Finally, have the Store button now link to your InstanteStore and your customers will be able to shop directly at your store now. :)

Hope this helps to explain things. Please let me know if you'd rather I give you a call and speak with you. Either that or I can just go ahead and guide you directly from this ticket system.

Do let me know.

Thanks!
