Quick start guide: How to set up your indieCart store

Thanks so much for choosing to host your store on indieCart! IndieCart offers many seller-requested features and, as a result, the back-end interface can seem a little intimidating. This quick guide series walks you through the simplest path to getting your store design, listings and categories set up so you can focus on making and selling your items.

The first video focuses on setting up an attractive store design as easily as possible. It covers the basic templates and how to upload an image for the top of your store. You don’t even need to have a logo to get going. Note that I mention “Hyena Cart” in these videos, which was the old site name, but the navigation and functionality is the same:

The second video focuses on setting up a basic listing. It covers how to add a listing, its title, price, description, images, and shipping information:

And the third video walks you through setting up categories and how they appear in your store. It covers when you might want to use categories and how you can change their appearance in your store:

I hope you find these videos helpful. More videos are on the way that highlight different features of the cart. If you have any requests for future videos, please let me know in the comments. Thanks!
