  1. On the left menu of the Back Office click Settings and from General Settings choose Your subscription.
  2. Choose a package and click Buy
  3. Copy the phone number of your account manager and contact them to start your webshop. 
  4. On your hosting site, enter the link you want to use and choose DNS or name server. It can take up to 48 hours to activate the link.
