I would think that you would want to add google analytics to your site and sign it up with google merchant (assuming that you have items for sale.) Advertise too.

Thanks EDCC....I think I need to rephrase it. I signed up, and I do not see anything that says "build your site now" or anything like that. I am lost. Any Pappashop users willing to help?

Sorry, I misunderstood. Good luck.

I just helped a friend set up her site on merchantmoms, which is very similar to pappashop, so I have a general idea.

You should get an e-mail from them with your login information - for cpanel (which is where you can upload files to your site) and also for your store admin (which is where you will spend 99% of your time).

They have a huge knowledgebase section that will help you find your way around - this page has two links that may help get you started (see "how do I access my cpanel and what is cpanel for?" and "how do I access my storeadmin and what is storeadmin for?"):

The main knowledgebase is here - spend some time reading around...lots of info there:

You'll need to set up your Mals cart to work with Pappashop - there are articles in the knowledgebase on how to do that too.

Good luck! I have a pretty good knowledge of web stuff so I found it really easy, but my friend is totally clueless and once she read some articles and gave it a shot, she really loved it & says it's easy now. :)
