Store Basics 101

A store corresponds to an independent subscription-based business. With SubscriptionBridge you can run unlimited subscription-based businesses through the same SubscriptionBridge account.

Adding a Store

To Add a store:

  • Log into the Merchant Center.
  • Click on Add New Store to begin.
  • Choose a Store Type
    For a number of reasons, you cannot convert a Test store into a Live store, and vice versa. You can have unlimited stores in your SubscriptionBridge Merchant Center, so it's a good idea to setup both a Test and a Live store.
    • Live Store - A live store can connect to a real payment gateway.
    • Test Store - A test store is pre-configured with a demo version of our Early Impact Gateway. It acts and behaves just like a live store.
