As soon as you launch Shiplark, you would be asked to give your store a name, select the type of store that you have, and enter your store URL. This would be the website your customers go to (www.examplestore.com / www.examplestore.com/democart etc)
As soon as you select a store type that required a module, Shiplark would tell you that to connect to the store you first need to install the Webgility Store Module. Click continue to proceed.
Now, you would need to enter the FTP credentials to your shopping cart. These can be obtained from your web designers / web developers / hosting service providers etc. Click connect to proceed, once all the details are entered in.
Shiplark would then ask you to choose a specific folder on your FTP Server. Select that folder and click 'Install Webgility Store Module'
Folder name: None. This module installs in the root of the shopping cart.
Sample Module URL: http://www.yourwebsitename.com/webgility/pinnacle.php
As soon as the Webgility store module is installed, you will see the screen below. Enter the admin username and password to the backend of the store and click 'Connect to Store'. If you have .htaccess protection or a protected admin folder, you can select that option and enter your protection username and passwords here. Click 'Connect to Store' to proceed.
As soon as you click connect to store, Shiplark would communicate with the Webgility Store module and begin to download the data and settings from the online store. You would need to click 'Continue' to proceed to the next step.
