1. Create a new store
🔺 Before started, here are some important note about store name:
- If you sign up using Facebook or Google account, store name will follow your email address name before @
- Store name will be used by system to auto generate a free domain for your store in the format https://storename.easy.co
- You can change your store name later but the .easy.co domain is unchangeable afterwards
1.1 To create a store, sign up to a 14-day free trial store with us. Now you have the options to sign up with Facebook or Google account, or sign up with email address.
Store name - Normally is your company / brand name
First & Last name - This will be your user profile name. One store can have multiple users (staff or admin role)
Country - Your country
Email address - This will be your registered email address with EasyStore, you can change it afterwards
Password - Your password should have at least 9 characters and must include upper-case letters, lower-case letters and number
1.2 Upon signing up, you may log in to your EasyStore Admin to start setting up your store, design your store, and so on.
1.3 To visit your website, click on your store name on the top right corner > Online store.
2. Add custom domain
Except the complimentary .easy.co domain, you also can add custom domain like .com or .my domain to your store (recommended). There are two methods:
2.1 If you have not owned any domain, you can register and purchase a new custom domain through EasyStore, or subscribe with us and redeem your free one-year .com domain 🎁
2.2 If you already have your own existing domain ( purchased from other third party domain provider ), you can point your existing domain to your store.
More info about custom domains can be found here.
