Hello all,

I have my store configured and hopefully ready to go.

However before I do launch it and start getting traffic to it I want to ensure that there arent any serious problems.

What common problems could I encounter with a newly launched and untested store?

Please let me know so I can prevent rather than cure them!

Thanks

Luke

Luke,

I would test your store in all the different browsers you can find.

I would query your products all the different ways you can think of and have others do the same.

And most importantly, test all your payment methods at least once to make sure each works.

Thanks for this Brent. Looks like its all in order except one thing - I’m not getting a copy of the clients order information sent to my email. Where would I go to check this setting?
