How to publish

Publishing your Quick Shopping Cart storefront creates your Online Store and moves it to the Internet. The Publishing page lets you view changes made to your store since the last update, preview the store before publishing, and publish (or update) the storefront.

Whether publishing your storefront for the first time or updating your storefront, just click Start Publish. Before publishing, you can preview the site by clicking Preview Site.

Remember, the first time you publish, it may take 24-48 hours for your store to display on the Internet. This is because it takes time for your website to spread throughout the various Web servers that make up the backbone of the Internet (we call this Domain Name Server propagation).

To Preview the Storefront

  1. Log in to your Webbusiness.com account.
  2. Click Quick Shopping Cart.
  3. In the Quick Shopping Cart list, click Manage next to the Quick Shopping Cart account you want to use.
  4. Click Preview.
