Getting started with Storefront

OpenSRS Storefront is a fully hosted, brandable e-commerce site that lets you start selling domains immediately.  Storefront handles all the end-user billing on your behalf, allowing your customers to pay by credit card using the OpenSRS payment gateway service.  Customers manage their domains through a user-friendly Domain Manager, allowing them to deploy, manage, and renew the services provisioned through your Storefront.

Setting up Storefront

Upon the first login only, a setup process is required.  OpenSRS resellers will need to use their current credentials to log in.  There will be three sections that need to be completed before the service is active.  

Note: If your store is already active, you will be taken to the domains section of your account.

  1. Enter credentials and hit Log in.
