Once you‘ve made your purchase, you’ll need to set your cart up. Here’s how to do that…

Step 1: Order Setup

The first step is to set up your order information. This will include the email address where order notifications go, customer notifications, order completion information like where to redirect people after buying, etc.

Click Setup in the dashboard navigation and then select Orders.


Order Notice Email (Primary): Enter the email address where you want to receive order notifications. This could be your mail address or if you have a 3rd party fulfillment center mailing out your products, you would enter their address here.

Order Notice Email (Secondary): You can leave this blank or if you entered a fulfillment center address above, then you would enter your email address here.

Order Notice Email (From Address): This is the address where your notices will be sent from.

Recurring Transactions (Merchant): Do you want the merchant to be notified of recurring transactions

Recurring Transactions (Customer): Do you want the customer to be notified of recurring transactions

Number of rebill attempts: How many times do you want to attempt to collect a payment before the subscription is canceled?




Step 2: Payment Processors

Next you need to set up your payment processors so that you can receive payments. To do this, simply navigate to Setup and select Gateway Setup.


If you’ll be accepting PayPal, enter your paypal address & check the “Accept PayPal Express Checkout” option. The PayPal Data Transfer is optional but some say it helps with the way 1SC and PayPal interacts. If you wish to accept paypal echeck orders, make that selection. Then click Save Changes.


If you have an account with a 3rd party service to accept credit card payments, you’ll need to add those details to your account as well. Here’s how…

Click the Setup Other Payment Options tab. From the dropdown, choose which payment processor you use. Check Enable Payment Options. Choose the Sale Type. Highlight the type of cards you accept and click the arrow to move it to the right. Check the Enable Cheque processing if applicable (this is different than the PayPal echeck option above).


Step 3: Cart Options

The next step is to set how your cart will work. To do this navigate to Setup then Cart Options.


This is where you will chose the default fields you want for your shoppingcart. Simply using the dropdown to make your selections and choose Save when finished.

This is where you can customize the wording of your shopping cart. You can select as many or as few as you like. HTML is allowed. Images for this section are below the descriptions.
