    • Select "Get a Strip Account".  If you follow this process and  the steps you will assigned a merchant stripe account that will be linked to the OutpostLE admin Stripe Account.  This linking will allow us at OutpostLE  to process your CC transactions quickly and efficiently.


  2. Verify your small business information / Details are setup.


  3. When adding products:
    • Product Available:
      • Please try to remember to set the AVAILABLE DATE on your product to not be before Nov 23.  This will ensure no-one purchases your product before we are open to the public.  You can also set the date to be when you would like the product to become available.  Before it is available, it will appear on the COMING SOON page.
      • If you want to add products but are not ready to make them available and do not appear in COMING SOON -- mark them as NOT FOR SALE.
    • Product Price:
      • If you do not want a product to have its price displayed, you can select the CALL FOR PRICE button, which will have the words "Call for price!" with your store's phone number in the product's price section.
    • Is this product a SERVICE:
      • If you are a Service based vendor or would like to mark a product as a SERVICE, you can select the IS SERVICE button on the product setup page. This setting will have the customer redirected to your store page when choosing this product instead of pulling up a product details page.
