1.3 Product Creation

To use the standard DalPay Retail shopping cart, you will need to either create products manually, or upload a file containing product data

Select [order pages/Products] to begin. The page will walk you through the various options, but the required fields are Product ID (SKU), Product Name, Price, and Category (already pre-filled to your default selection).

To use the upload tool, select [order pages/Products/Bulk Load]. It may be useful to create one product manually, then download the file to get the template to easily create more products.

1.4 Adding buy now links to your website

Once products have been created, DalPay Retail generates easy to use links to paste into your website. These links can be obtained from [order pages/Products/Link Generator].

All DalPay Retail Suppliers are required to display that DalPay Retail is their online retailer, and can also display applicable credit card logos.
