Chapter 24. Home-Brewed Store-Building > Step 6: Publish and Manage

Step 6: Publish and Manage

Once you've built your store it will be active. At that point you use your ShopSite backend to track orders, look at reports, and tweak any setting or generate new product links as needed. Orders are provided securely on the back end via a screen you can view. You can also download orders securely into a comma-delimited file that you can import into a Point-of-Sale program or spreadsheet. If you've integrated with a credit-card processing service, you'll get authorization information, too. However, you'll need to use that system's interface for capturing the money once you've shipped the product.

At this point you're on your own. ShopSite and other cart systems may offer additional features, and you may dream up new ways to build cool features into your site. However, the basics remain the same. Build a good site, provide a good ordering and checkout mechanism, keep on top of operations, and people will appreciate your store.
